Dean's List members were treated to a very educational demonstration with West Coast Falconry at our Fall Pickup Party. These birds of prey provide a natural way to keep small pest birds, like starlings and finches, out of the vineyard. Members also had the chance to participate with the birds of prey like Don Diego, a Sonoran Harris hawk, by him flying glove to glove. Chef Eric Magnani does it again. This time with a slow roasted local whole hog, autumn greens, tomato and sourdough panzanella, grilled squash and peppers and roasted yukon gold potatoes.
