Last week, Republic National Distributing Company generously hosted the Cyclone Anaya’s Mexican Kitchen corporate team on a trip to Napa, Sonoma, and San Francisco. Eric and Jennifer of Republic wined and dined our team in style! We visited five wineries – Simi, Korbel, Kendall-Jackson, Trinchero, and Darioush. Our trip was both educational and recreational. Many, many wines were tasted, some of which will be seen on our new wine menu (April 1st)!
Korbel Champagne Cellars – We went on a production tour at Korbel, the science and technology that goes into champagne making is truly fascinating.Korbel Champagne Cellars – World’s Largest Bottle of Champagne. The bottle contains ~1K glasses of bubbly! Simi Winery – Luke, who guided us around the winery was very informative! He showed us how the type of glass you drink from affects the aroma & taste of wine. Simi Winery – The executive chef at Simi served us an amazing dinner with wine parings.
