Majka Pizzeria and Bakery

Clarksburg - Nebbiolo

The Heringer family has a long history of farming in Clarksburg and has begun setting the example for organic farming in the region. The Nebbiolo we make from their vineyard is one of the lightest and most varietally correct you will find in California. That being said, the five rows of Nebbiolo they have planted is quite different from what we see in Italy. The soils are much richer here in the delta, the weather is much warmer and the vines are pruned in a completely opposite way than what is the tradition in Italy. It’s trained on a quadrilateral cordon system and cropped at five tons to the acre.
Kicking off the Easter weekend, Sharon and I picked up a take-out pizza from Majka Pizzeria and Bakery. The three of us split two salads [arugula, quinoa, sugar snap peas, cucumbers, radish, pickled red onion, bulgarian feta, olive oil, lime juice, lots of heabs] and a pizza [bianco dinapoli tomatoes, baby savoy spinach, garlic, mozzarella, ricotta, parmigiano, evoo, basil]. The wine pairing was a Haarmeyer Wine Cellars 2021 Nebbiolo. The grapes were from Heringer Vineyards.

Sharon and I finished the day watching the first half of Gosford Park.
