Winery's Charcuterie & Wine Tasting experience.
" Most people ferment different
kinds of salumi together and
humidity transfers molecules back
and forth, " Seghesio explains.
" By separating them, we can control
the fermentation and lengthen the
process to make it taste great. "
" I have a great respect for a man
doing what he is passionate about, "
Executive Chef Todd Knoll says.
" He was a very accomplished
business owner before Journeyman.
He could be lying on a tropical
beach somewhere, but he's
chosen to pour his heart into the
art of salumi. "
One of the reasons Chef Knoll likes
working with Journeyman products
is because they are produced in a
natural way with less preservatives
and salt, which makes for great
wine pairings.
For instance, Journeyman's
Parmesan Porcini pairs perfectly
with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
due to earthy notes in both. Chef
Knoll also says he loves to serve the
finnochiona (a dry Italian salame with
fennel and fennel pollen), since there
is a lot of wild fennel growing on the
Jordan Estate, and the salame " is a
true extension of Sonoma foraging
we like to celebrate. "
All told, Seghesio makes about 10
different kinds of salumi, as well as
seven kinds of smoked sausages
and six varieties of fresh sausage.
There are a number of ways
Jordan guests can sample
Journeyman meats. Chef Knoll
serves Journeyman beef in one of
the dishes on the Estate Tour &
Tasting, which culminates at Jordan
Vista Point, just above Seghesio's
neighboring farm and cattle ranch.
A Journeyman-centric charcuterie
picnic rewards visitors at the end
of Jordan's Vineyard Hike, and his
products take center stage during
the Charcuterie & Wine Tasting.
The new Jordan Chateau Block
Tasting also features Journeyman.
As part of this experience, Seghesio
will create custom salumi for pairing
with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
that will be served with a vertical
tasting of cabernets in the new
vineyard across from the chateau.
Journeyman products will also be
a central feature on the menu for
the Jordan picnic events in June
and August.
Guests also can sample Journeyman
directly from the source, of course.
In 2017, Seghesio opened a tasting
room-the Journeyman Meat Co.
storefront is located on Center
Street in downtown Healdsburg
next to Michelin three-star
SingleThread. The space, which
doubles as a working butcher
shop, is open five days a week and
serves a variety of tasting platters
of Journeyman salumi and sausage,
paired with wines from Journeyman
and Seghesio.
The experience is sophisticated,
intimate and delicious. It's a great
way to spend an afternoon.
Most days Seghesio himself works
the counter, slicing salumi and
chatting up customers. When he's
not there, you'll likely be served by
his wife, Cathy, or one of their sons.
It turns out that salumi, much like
wine, is a Seghesio family affair.
WHAT TO PAIR
WITH JORDAN
Jordan wines complement just about every
food, but some Journeyman salumi matches
up better than others.
With Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, try the
Parmesan Porcini salame, which comprises
bits of parmesan that cut through tannins
and help cleanse the palate for every bite.
As Seghesio explains it, the mushroom in
the salame is a wonderful complement to
cabernet's natural earthiness.
" The porcini is mild, which is good, " he says.
" With a big wine, the last thing you want is
something overly spicy with noticeable hot
pepper because it will amplify the tannins. "
For pairings with Jordan Chardonnay,
Seghesio recommends the soppressata,
a salame that features Calabrian chilis and
sweet peppers, fennel and cayenne. In this
case, the heat of the salame bumps up the
perceived acidity of the wine. " The flavors
play well together, " Seghesio says. " It's like
a showcase. "
