What Does Abundance Mean To You?

GIVEAWAY: WEEKEND STAY AT COPIA VINEYARDS GUESTHOUSE
Enter for your chance to win: Read below!


Hi Friends,

Sometimes life can give you lessons of humiliation in tiny doses. Maybe you only got to second place in your 2nd grade spelling bee (true story). Other times, life can literally bring you to your knees. Maybe, due to circumstances outside of your control, you had to leave almost everything and everyone you knew behind (also a true story). One day, we'll sit down with you and tell you all about it ...
 
"The world breaks everyone and afterward
many are strong at the broken places."
- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Knowing that you are small in the grand scheme of things allows for appreciation of life's lessons. And if you get through it, you learn resilience. Without our own experiences, we would never have been able to take the risks and leaps to reach what is now Copia Vineyards. 

People often ask us, "What does Copia mean?" Copia (Cōpia) is from Latin meaning abundance. It's such a powerful word. What better way to encapsulate the sheer feeling of fullness that takes its residence in our hearts. We're always saying that life's path is winding and we're glad it led us here. When we arrived on this property in 2017, we couldn't help but be consumed by the ample sense of home. So, Copia is home to us. 
 
And now, we want to spread the wealth of this good, good feeling!
We  want  to  know  what ABUNDANCE means  to  you.

The Little Things

 
Hello Everyone,

Down the rabbit hole we all went back in March. Just like Lewis Carroll's Alice, you could say that it has been an Adventure in Wonderland, with all it's complexities, dramas and strangeness. Back in March, I'm sure a lot of us were wary of mandatory sheltering. Then in April, if you didn't have to seek medical help, you might have felt gratitude for just being healthy. And now in May, dare we try to be cautiously optimistic? To some, it may feel too soon. To others, it may not be soon enough.

This "downtime" is difficult, but it doesn't come without feeling transformed somehow. It's been the little things during this time that feel like blessings. Little reflections. Little activities. Little lessons. We learn how to just "be" in the same space at the same time as our significant other. We can gain an appreciation for the things that the other person does throughout his or her daily life. We share their struggles and relish in their triumphs. Our thoughts become unlocked and free. We share them with each other. We listen to nature uninterrupted and think about our own influence on its cycle and heartbeat. Life is taken slower than before, because we don't have much of a choice, do we? It makes me wonder how many of these "little things" I will want to keep alive in my life after the height of this pandemic passes. Years from now, I suspect I'll look back at this time with a weird sort of nostalgia. I know I'll be forever changed by it and it's not necessarily a bad thing to have life interrupted only to value it more. 

It seems like we're on the cusp of moving to Stage 3 of California's "Resilience Roadmap." We shall see. This last week, we've been discussing how to successfully and safely conduct wine tastings again. On Friday, we joined a Zoom call with around 250 of our peers to learn about where we stand when it comes to reopening. It feels imminent and we are preparing for the eventuality.

Finally, to everyone who has been ill or knows someone who has been affected by COVID-19, we wish you strength and hope that there are some little things that you, too, can hold onto at this time.

Strawberry Bakewell Tart | Recipe by Sarah Boone

This recipe sings summer to me. Being from the UK, a bakewell tart is a summer staple – a delicious concoction of sweet shortcrust pastry, fruit, jam, frangipane (a chewy French almond filling) and topped with sliced almonds.  It’s a show stopper piece that can be made with just about any fruit and jam you like, or have on hand. Strawberries from our local farmer’s market have been delicious lately, I recommend making this with whatever fruit is in season at the time … strawberries, plums, and cherries to name a few. This tart is best served at room temp, so pack it up for your next picnic or backyard BBQ. A classic bakewell is finished with a sprinkling of confectioners sugar, this part in my opinion is optional, and I actually prefer it without!

Roasted Chicken Over Root Vegetables | Recipe by Varinder Sahi

This is no trick of the eye. There is more than one way to roast a chicken, but apparently, if you’re Varinder, you need to wear the same shirt on a different day to do it! What makes this homestyle dish just a tad bit elevated is the 3-day prep process. On Day 1 you prepare your chicken and brine. On Day 2, you start the “drying” process, something that V credits Chef Thomas Keller with. On Day 3, you’ll continue to dry and roast it off that evening. The results are well worth the time and nothing short of succulent! In terms of the brine and the specific vegetables you use, be easy and free. We pulled out whatever we had at the time and put it to great use. Enjoy this elegant homestyle meal!     – Anita Sahi

Honesty and Hope

Hello Copia Friends and Fam,

When I started sending these emails each week, I told myself that I was going to be one thing above all: Honest. And honestly speaking, I'm getting a little stir crazy. Between stories of killer hornets and sheltering in place for a month-and-a-half, it's been really tough to not see you. It's like the car ride that never ends. There's a sort of feeling out there right now, a collective itch, if you will, of people waiting and wondering, "Are we there yet?"

I Zoom'ed (it's a verb, now) with my niece in Wisconsin this week. She had her head balanced on one hand while she told me how her college semester has been hijacked by Rona. That, in her charming Gen Z speak, is how she refers to Corona Virus. It's an uncomfortable familiarity that we're all developing with something that we'd just as soon see vanquished forever. Varinder and I trade this frustration back-and-forth, but then we also keep reminding ourselves that this will pass at some point. Tomorrow may not be the same, but it will come, nevertheless. And with each passing day, with hopeful hearts, we'll look forward to reintroducing all the things we enjoy sharing with you, like tastings, events and visits to your hometowns. God-willing, that time will be soon. In the meantime, we'll keep sharing with you, virtually! We're highlighting a wonderful interview with Varinder conducted by Randy Smith of The Wine Write, sharing a recipe for a homestyle chicken dish with a slightly elevated preparation and highlighting some specials we have at the Copia Vineyards store.

We'd also like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Take heart friends, keep hope and definitely stay in touch as you have been. We love hearing from you.
