This holiday season, Gervasi Vineyard is adding excitement and joy to celebrations with family, friends, and co-workers. Each week leading up to Christmas, we’ll share a new idea for experiencing Gervasi with your loved ones.
An important part of any celebration or gathering is the food. Coming together over a meal is a universal act that unites people, strengthens bonds, and builds a sense of community. Sharing a satisfying meal with friends and family brings about laughter, happiness, and love.
What better way to celebrate the togetherness of family and friends this holiday season than by sharing a delicious gourmet meal created by the culinary team at Gervasi Vineyard?
Gervasi’s Executive Chef, Jerry Risner said, “When I think about getting together with family, I am reminded of all the great flavors of some of the classic holiday meals that we prepared together. These memories shaped the special menu we’re offering our guests to share with their families.”
Gervasi’s four Featured Holiday Family Meals will enthrall the most discriminative guest and entice those who love to eat.
Gervasi’s Featured Holiday Family Meals
The culinary team at Gervasi Vineyard has prepared a special family style menu to share with loved ones, and a new meal will be featured each week in December.
“The menu offerings were selected based on family favorites ordered in The Bistro. Plus, the stuffed pork chops and the braised beef braciola are two of my personal favorites,” said Chef Risner. “The braciole is one of those meals that takes a lot of time to make. Preparing it for the holiday family meals will give guests a chance to serve it without spending a lot of time in the kitchen.”
Guests may select the weekly featured meal and order online. Curbside pickup will be available between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the solicited date at The Villa Grande. Meals will be prepared cold with heating instructions included. Each meal feeds five to six people, and costs $99, with optional add-ons available.
