Kitchen Workshops 

at Long Meadow Ranch

Long Meadow Ranch Winery invites you to join us for engaging and unique Kitchen Workshops at Long Meadow Ranch. Led by our Farm-to-Table Educator and Chefs, students will learn about seasonal and local products with an emphasis on those coming straight from our gardens.

A true farm-to-table experience, each class begins with a tour of our Main Street experimental garden, giving students a snapshot of our organic 10 acre farm that supplies Farmstead Restaurant. Participate in discussions involving the history, health benefits and practical uses of local ingredients. Our educational and hands-on approach will leave each student feeling empowered to re-create the experience at home.

Each class includes Long Meadow Ranch’s award-winning wine, an embroidered LMR apron and a collection of recipes. The Instruction-only Workshop, will last two hours, and include samplings of the items created. For those of you looking to extend your time with us, a three course, wine-paired dinner showcasing the dishes prepared together, will follow the instruction portion for our Sunday Workshop. The Sunday Workshop will last four hours.

To reserve, call 707.963.4555 x7105 or email us.
Customized, Private Workshops available upon request.
