Fava Brothers Vineyard Zinfandel Wine
Paired with Dishes from Sonoma County Chefs!

The beauty of wine is the way it matches with food,
enhances a meal enjoyed with conversation,
and brings people together around a table.

Our Italian field blend wine, with its low alcohol,
pairs wonderfully with food and cheese.

Here is a recipe that pairs our Fava Brothers Zinfandel with cuisine from a San Francisco chef:

Trattoria Pinocchio

Coniglio alla Giovanni
Paired with Marcucci Farms Zinfandel

1 rabbit (2 1/2 to 3 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
1 large onion, halved then sliced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup black kalamata olives
4 medium-sized tomatoes, quartered
Oregano, to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper,
to taste
1/2 to 1 cup water
Rinse the rabbit pieces and pat dry with paper towels. In a large cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the rabbit pieces and brown them well, turning them on all sides for about 15 minutes. Transfer the rabbit to a plate.

Over medium heat, sauté onion for 15 minutes, add garlic, sauté together for 5 minutes. Add peppers and olives, sauté 10 minutes until soft. Add tomatoes and sauté 10 minutes longer.

Return the rabbit to the pan and add oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the water and bring contents to a simmer. Reduce temperature to low heat, cover and let cook for about 30 minutes, rotating the rabbit occasionally until the rabbit is tender when pierced. If the liquid evaporates, add more water.

Serve hot on a serving plate.

“Marcucci Farms Zinfandel is jammy and easy-going, with blackberry cobbler aromas and soft, spicy flavors. It is a perfect pairing with this dish.”
