Cuvée Dray & Italian Food
Here at Rubino Estates Winery, we stand at a corner: we are passionate about all things Italian, and we celebrate California’s distinguished winemaking. The 2020 Cuvée Dray, created and sold in partnership with our sister winery Ruby Hill, provides a new kind of pairing opportunity. This wine is a drool-worthy blend inspired by French Bordeaux wines, and crafted from grapes that grow right here on our Livermore Valley estate. This California-grown French-style wine has one more trick up its sleeve: it pairs deliciously with Italian cuisine. Recipes linked below, so read on!

In our opinion, Risotto should be given the spotlight as often as possible. Made to be an easy weeknight recipe, this risotto packs in protein and veggies and is easy to modify to your preference.

Italian Lamb Ragu
For anyone who has time to get everything just right, then this ragu is a must-try. For extra flavor points, the pasta can be homemade too.

Fizza Funghi e Salsiccia
Of course, a pizza from scratch is always a good call in our opinion. The savory and earthy flavors from the sausage and mushrooms harmonize deliciously with each sip of Cuvée Dray!
