Creative recipes inspired by O’Connell Family Wines

Accented by GC Napa Valley Culinary Products

Gabrielle Leonhard O’Connell

Entertaining inspires our creativity at O’Connell Family Wines. Host your next social gathering in style by pairing our original Gabrielle Collection Wine Country Foodie menus and recipes of delectable bites with our delicious wines orcreative cocktails, like the“Pretty in Pink” Rosé Spritzeror the perfect Napa Valley Bloody Mary. The secret of  Gabrielle Collection Wine Country Foodie recipes lies not in the complexity of the recipe but in the purity of ingredients found in GC Napa Valley Culinary artisan products that accent the core ingredients.

We have established our 5-Step Recipe Series to make cooking and entertaining even simpler and tastier. We encourage simply cooked, well-seasoned meals for family and friends to bring out the best in our handcrafted boutique O’Connell Family Wines. At O’Connell Family Wines, food and wine are inseparable, deliciously balanced in a lively dance that will delight your senses.

Share Foodie Recipes With Friends And Family

Entertaining at home, whether casual or dressy, is always a wonderful way to spend breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our culinary team has developed Wine Country Foodie recipes for all occasions, and sharing these recipes with your friends and family not only shares the fun, but also the cooking and cleanup. A brilliant idea! And when the Gabrielle Collection Wine Country Foodie club is delivered to your doorstep, nothing could be easier. Each bi-monthly Foodie box contains all the GC Napa Valley Culinary condiments, recipes, shopping lists, and menu plans you will need to create flavorful memories with your friends.

Create a Wine Country Foodie Dinner Club

Many of our Wine Country Foodie members have created a Foodie Dinner Club. Friends and family join together every other month to cook and feast. Lively conversation over food prep and appetizers followed by a delicious meal is a wonderful way to entertain simply. Of course, what would a gathering be without great wine? Each recipe offers recommended O’Connell Family Wine pairings to accent each course. Gabrielle’s favorite “cooking” wine is Pietro Family Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, though she must admit, little finds its way into the pot. If you already have a dinner club, you will be sure to impress your friends by offering a Wine Country Foodie feast at your next hosting event.

Share a Tailgate

We love our football traditions, and none so much as the tradition of preparing great food to share with friends. What could be better than huddling up with your friends to pick the perfect recipes for the game, dividing up the cooking, and then coming together to celebrate your team’s big win, whether at the stadium or in the comfort of your own home? Our Foodie Club Recipes offer no shortage of great appetizers that are sure to score a touchdown with all your guests! And with the wine pairing suggestions that accompany each recipe, you’ll have no trouble determining which great O’Connell Family Wines to add to the beer cooler.

Plan a Progressive Dinner

Also called a safari supper or a round-robin, a progressive dinner features successive courses prepared and eaten at the residences of different hosts. The Wine Country Foodie box works perfectly for such an occasion because you can divide the ingredients and recipes among your friends to orchestrate a fun evening of intrigue and delight, while toasting each other’s hospitality with a clink of perfectly paired O’Connell Family Wine.

Give as a Gift

You can even give the gift of creative cooking! For a month or a year, your home chef friends will love receiving a Wine Country Foodie box.

Gabrielle Collection Wine Country Foodie Club All Year Entertaining

Shared Entertaining Experience with Family and Friends, Clinking Wine Glasses

The Wine Country Foodie recipes we created for entertaining are perfect year around. Whether a charcuterie platter served at a Super Bowl party, football or baseball tailgating, neighborhood get-togethers, or backyard barbecues, spoiling friends and family with delicious food nurtures our spirit. Suggested O’Connell Family Wines pairings listed in every Wine Country Foodie menu takes the guesswork out of entertaining. Our family loves to create a convivial atmosphere for friends and family to break bread, share stories, and be nurtured by creatively prepared food, elevated by great wine. To bring the O’Connell Family Napa Valley Wine Country lifestyle to your home, we created the Wine Country Foodie club. We invite you to become a Wine Country Foodie and Decanter Society wine club member and bring the Napa Valley lifestyle into your home.
