Gloria Ferrer Glorious Giveaway

Calling all home cooks! Your creative, culinary creations, could get you some cold hard cash. Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards is searching for the nation’s most glorious appetizer recipe to pair with its Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut and it’s willing to pay $5,000 to get it! So, if you know your way around the kitchen (and are over 21 years old), now is the time to channel your inner foodie, and share your favorite recipe with the world wide web.

Eva Bertran & Monique Soltani

In this episode of Wine Oh TV, Monique Soltani sets her sights on Sonoma County where she discovers sparkling wine and starters are the perfect partners, gives us a taste of Rosé all day the sparkling wine way, and gets a little cheesy with Gloria Ferrer’s Eva Bertran. 😉

Appetizers will be judged on originality, taste appeal and their ability to pair well with Sonoma Brut, the sparkling wine Gloria Ferrer has been producing in Sonoma for 30 years
