The joys of spring: Artichoke season

As you know, while we are primarily a vineyard, we also have many other aspects to what makes us "us" and one of the most important ones is the fact that we also grow a lot of other crops. This spring has brought us a beautiful crop of artichokes. These gorgeous globes are beautiful tripped, steamed, dismembered and dipped in our olive oil and sea salt flakes, but preserved artichokes also bring a delicious taste of spring to meals later in the season.

Marcia, our semi-resident cook and culinary genius, popped in yesterday to work her magic on our excess artichokes and we're looking forward to tasting the fruits of her labour one day...
