Occasio Winery - Petite Sirah, Nottingham Cellars - Ralphi's Red Blend, and Ken's Wood Fired Pizza!

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending an event for Ken’s Wood Fired Pizza.  The event was held at both Nottingham Cellars and Occasio Winery.  The two wineries are neighboring each other, so it was a perfect location to have some of Ken’s Wood Fired Pizza.  Perfect location because both wineries have some of the best wine I’ve had in a while.  Ken actually brings out a wood fired pizza oven and cranks out the best pizza you’ll ever have.  People were going nuts over the pizza.  The winner that day was the Cal Italia pizza that he specializes in.  Thick crust, blue cheese, prosciutto, arugula, and fig jam!  It was so delicious.  The pizza paired well with Occasio’s Petite Sirah and Nottingham’s Ralphi’s Red Blend.  Both wines were out of this world.  As a side note, Nottingham Cellars released Ralphi’s Red Blend that day so it was exciting for me to try.  It was a great event that included delicious pizza and wonderful wine.  If you haven’t tried these two Livermore wineries please stop by and do so.  I’m talking about the unique tasting experience you have when you’ve finished tasting the flight, and you cannot decide which wine was the best.  That’s a good problem to have.   Anyway, since they are neighbors you must hit both, you won’t regret it!
