11:00 Fast Five Recipe – Barbecued Tri Tip from Jason Robinson of Ehret Family Winery

Tri Tip, and equal parts of the following: olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh chopped garlic and low sodium soy sauce. About a ¼ cup of each.

Marinate the Tri Tip overnight and set up barbecue for indirect.

Start by searing the meat over direct heat on each side then move over to the indirect part of the grill. Leave it there for 10-15 minutes. Then place the tri tip in a foil lined ice chest and let it sit in the “hot box” for 20 minutes to redistribute the juices in the meat. And when you cut into it it’s incredibly juicy. Pair with Ehret Family Merlot, Zinfandel, or Sauvignon Blanc!

15:00 What to expect at the winery –first call for an appointment so Dan and Bobby will be there to welcome you and take you through the wines including Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and occasionally Valdiguie, the Dorian Gray of grapes.
