Annually we have Paella Day at Reyes Winery. This year we are celebrating Father’s Day with Paella. We do a mixed version with chicken, pork, fish and vegetables. Robert started making paella in the 1980’s with his childhood friend in Miami. He has created this recipe we feature this coming Sunday June 19, 2016 by choosing things he likes.
Paella is a rice dish that originated in Valencia, Spain around the 19th century. Many people around the world have believed that it is the national dish of Spain, yet Spaniards have said it is regional dish. There are many types of paella like seafood, vegetarian or mixed. The original Valencian style paella consisted of rice, chicken, rabbit, snails, green beans, white beans (maybe Lima or butter beans), rice with saffron and sometimes rosemary.
The Still Moving Project will be performing live while you enjoying paella and award winning wines. Reyes 2013 “Amber” Chardonnay is the perfect pairing to this exquisite dish. Amber recently won a bronze award in the 2016 OC Fair.
Come and enjoy Robert’s Paella at Reyes Winery Sunday June 19th for Father’s Day from 2-5pm. It is $49 per person and includes 2 glasses of wine, paella, salad and dessert.
