Authentic Paso Robles Gifts- Gourmet Delights by Tina Swithin, Travel Paso Robles Alliance
Tuesday, December 20, 2011
We've dedicated this blog series to some truly authentic Paso Robles gifts that will delight those on your Christmas list. How authentic, you ask? They are grown right here in Paso Robles!
Paso Robles is quickly becoming known as a producer of fabulous olive oils. Just when I think that I know everything about Paso,I discover something new. For instance, Niner Wine Estates produces more than just great wines. They also produce olive oil! The Niner Wine Estates Olive Oil is estate grown from their eastside Bootjack Ranch Vineyard property, carefully made and bottled in limited quantities each year. This vintage is a blend of Arbequina, a Spanish variety and Frantoio, an Italian variety. The Arbequina
brings a buttery mouthfeel and a peppery finish, while the Frantoio offers fruity aromas and a sweet sensation which makes them excellent blending partners. The 2010 Extra Virgin is medium-bodied, mildly pungent and tastes overall very clean. It finishes with a light spicy almond note. This would make a splendid stocking stuffer for the gourmet goddess in your life.
While olives and wine seem to take the spotlight in Paso Robles, there is an amazing little farm in Paso Robles which deserves a place on the stage. Bring in the holidays with the joy of gourmet treats from Limerock Orchards, Paso Robles' wine country walnut farm. I had the pleasure of speaking to Olivia Wenger of Limerock Orchards who was happy to share her scrumptious Walnut HolidayTaster with Inside Paso Robles. This delicious gift includes 4 lbs of organic, in-shell walnuts, 250ml roasted walnut oil and 8 ounces of creamy, raw walnut butter and a walnut oil recipe card. Yum!
Each product from Limerock Orchards is produced from their delicious, dryland farmed walnuts which are known for their sweet, buttery flavor. While you are doing your holiday shopping at Limerock Orchards, I highly recommend picking up some extra walnut butter for your own kitchen. It's amazing on everything from crepes to hot cereal.
