CALISTOGA, Calif., April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As spring arrives across the country, winter-weary wine lovers turn their thoughts and menus to fresh, seasonal flavors and celebrating spring holidays. Olema Wines are here to help you set the table with recipes and pairings that are great for Easter, Mother's Day or simply embracing the welcome change in the air.
Olema Wines co-owner Celia Shepard invited California Chef John Adamson to create recipes that would make hosting a spring gathering a breeze—and be a perfect match for Olema's bright, food-friendly wines. Olema Wines was founded by the owners of Amici Cellars in Napa Valley, who were looking to highlight the excellence of Sonoma County's vineyards with wines that offer both serious winemaking and serious value.
Lovely for Easter or a celebratory spring dinner is Roasted Spring Leg of Lamb with Farro Tabbouleh. The bright red fruit flavors in Olema Pinot Noir nicely balance the lamb's earthy notes and the deep roasted flavors of the farro tabbouleh in this elegant spring pairing. "Lamb is an Easter favorite and I love this dish," says Celia. "It's great for entertaining because the lamb is so simple, you just marinate it overnight and roast it in the oven for an hour." And because the tabbouleh is served at room temperature, it can be made ahead—so instead of last-minute prepping in the kitchen, you can enjoy spending time with your guests.
Inspired by Mother's Day or a leisurely spring brunch, Chef Adamson created Poached Chicken Salad with Apples, Brie, Pistachios and Spring Greens. Olema Chardonnay's honeysuckle and creamy lemon custard flavors make it the perfect partner. "This sophisticated take on chicken salad is great for entertaining family and friends for lunch or brunch on a sunny weekend day," says Celia. "I love the tangy apple and lemon zest notes balanced by the brie's creaminess, and the textural crunch from the pistachios and crostini. And best of all, it can be made ahead so there's plenty of time to hang out with your guests and enjoy the day."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
