Celebrate National Pasta Day with These Tri-Valley Favorites
At Rubino Estates, our Italian heritage and tradition honors the second property owner, Ernest Ferrario, and the rich history of Italian immigrants in the Livermore Valley. Ernest Ferrario was an Italian immigrant who moved to California to work on the railroads in San Rafael. Accustomed to the delicious wines in Italy, Ferrario decided to break into the wine business and purchase the Ruby Hill Property from John Crellin in 1921. Ferrario developed the land into a magnificent vineyard and established an admirable reputation as a Winemaker. Today, we carry on his legacy in our commitment to producing wines of distinction from Italian varietals. Wines like our Primitivo, Riserva Sangiovese, and Night Owl Barbera are delicious wines made in California, inspired by Italian fine wines.
Saturday is National Pasta Day, and we can't wait to dig into a big bowl of gnocchi. Here is a round-up of some of our favorite Italian restaurants in the Tri-Valley offering dining and take-out options so you can celebrate National Pasta Day, too. Come in for an afternoon tasting at Rubino and then head out for a lovely dinner to pair with your favorite Rubino Estates wine!
