It's Not That Hard

Don't let Wellington intimidate you. It's not actually all that hard to prepare.

How To Make the PERFECT Wellington

First you'll need to gather a few ingredients. 3 pints of button mushrooms. 2 shallots peeled and chopped. 4 cloves of garlic, minced. Two tablespoons of Dijon mustard. 2 eggs, lightly beaten. A pound of puff pastry. And, of course, a bottle of Wellington wine from this Wellington Fall Mixed Case.

Once you have gathered all the necessary ingredients, you're only 5 minutes away from enjoying the PERFECT Wellington. That's right! All you need to do now is get a big bowl, combine the mushrooms, shallots, garlic and mustard. Then throw the eggs on top and squish it all around.

Now this is the fun part. Take the pound of puff pastry, and just wrap it around all of the ingredients. Yes, while they are still in the bowl. Once the puff pastry has been fully wrapped around the bowl and ingredients, open up the bottle of Wellington and have a big ol' glass. Cuz you're gonna have a lot of explaining to do to the Executive Chef who hired you sight unseen.

Features

You will either get 3 bottles of the 2009 Merlot, or 3 bottles of the 2007 Merlot. The choice will be made by the winery.


2009 Merlot, Sonoma Valley 750ml 3-Pack

The Wellington Merlot is frequently referred to as a "Cab lover's Merlot", but this is somewhat less so in the 2009 vintage. Classic Merlot aromas of cherry, allspice and tea dominate, with nuances of licorice, tarragon and black pepper adding complexity. The entry is rich, plush and mouthcoating, with bright acid and soft tannins leading to a long, lingering finish with licorice and spice in the aftertaste. This wine has the versatility to complement many foods or to enjoy by itself. ​

OR

2007 Merlot, Sonoma Valley 750ml 3-Pack

The addition of small amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc helped bring out the fruit and add mid-palate richness. We’re very happy that we were able to bottle a Merlot in 2007 that is equal in quality to the excellent 2004 and 2005 vintages.  All of the Merlot grapes came from the Wellington Estate Vineyards.

The nose has deep blackberry, blueberry and cherry aromas, brown sugar/caramel, lots of brown spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) with hints of chocolate, black tea, tobacco and cedar. The fruit is spot-on ripe, with neither any greenness nor raisin. The entry is full bodied and supple, but with enough acid to keep it clean and focused. The flavors echo the aromas – lots of fruit and spice. The finish is clean and dry with good length. This vintage has a bit more tannin than the previous couple of years and has good potential to develop with aging over the next 2-5 years. This wine will pair nicely with stews, pot roast, and Toby's favorite-spinach farfalle pasta w/lots of pine nuts.

AND the rest of your case will contain each of the following 3-Packs:

2008 Syrah, England Crest, Sonoma Valley 750ml 3-Pack

We’ve been making Syrah as a varietal wine since 1993, and have worked with Syrah grapes from eleven different vineyards during that time. Along the way, we’ve learned a lot about the best vineyard conditions and winemaking techniques for Syrah. When Bruce and Judy England purchased the “Old Walker Place” next door to our vineyard they approached us with a proposal to grow Merlot for us. We countered with a request for Syrah, with the belief that the combination of soils and climate was ideal for high quality Syrah. Peter had major input on clonal selections, rootstocks, vine spacing and trellis system, and co-manages the vineyard with Bruce. Our vineyard foreman, Jose Mendoza, does all the pruning and is in charge of all cultural practices. England Crest Vineyard provided two thirds of the fruit for our wonderful 2002 Syrah, and beginning with the 2003 vintage has been bottled separately, as a vineyard designate.


2008 Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley 750ml 3-Pack

Year after year, our Sonoma Valley Zinfandel continues to be one of our most popular wines. Unlike many of its counterparts in Sonoma & Napa, our Valley Zinfandel is always approachable, and never “hot” due to too much alcohol. Our 2008 is no exception, and we are extremely happy with how rich this vintage is. The grapes that went into this wine all come from vineyards in the Glen Ellen area, The “Heart of Sonoma Valley”.

Our '08 has classic Zinfandel character, with briar, blackberry, raspberry/blueberry and black pepper. Similar to the ’05 is the charming “bakeshop” aspect - reminiscent of a fresh baked blackberry pie with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg adding to the berry fruit. Peter & Toby also picked up a wonderful blood orange note, while Dave loves the huckleberry jam quality. The tannins are supple and velvety, and the ample acid gives the wine a mouthwatering juiciness. It is very fruity, dry, balanced, and isn’t buried under tons of new oak and residual sugar as are way too many Zins these days.


2008 Zinfandel, Meeks Hilltop Ranch, Sonoma Valley 750ml 3-Pack

This wine epitomizes our stylistic goal of a combination of intensity and seamless balance. The concentrated blackberry and raspberry fruit aromas with hints of black pepper, licorice and clove say classic “Zinfandel”. The entry is smooth and full, and the flavors echo the aromas, with the addition of a hint of dark chocolate. The finish is long and smooth.

I would call this a “pretty” vintage, but there is still enough tannin and structure to allow this wine to age well for a couple of years. This wine pairs beautifully with soft cheeses (tellagio, teleme) and David loves it with Manhattan Mussel Chowder.

Winery Details

Wellington Vineyards

Owner:
Peter Wellington
Founded:
1986
Location:
Glen Ellen, CA

Wellington Vineyards is owned Peter Wellington. Peter's father John purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. We grow approximately half the grapes we use and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards.

The estate vineyards consist of 21 acres, 8 of which are 85 to 117 years old. There are 24 different varieties in the old vineyard, with the most common being Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache and Syrah. In addition, there are 10 acres of eleven to sixteen year old vines that consist of Merlot, Chardonnay, Marsanne, and Syrah. We grow more Merlot than anything else. Three more acres were replanted in 2001, predominantly to Syrah, Zinfandel and Grenache.
