SIMI Winery launched its new wine pairing cookbook, Savoring SIMI: Since 1876, just in time for the holidays. The cookbook celebrates the 140th anniversary of SIMI Winery as well as SIMI's rich history in Sonoma County. It includes an assortment of timeless recipes from past and present SIMI Winery chefs, including the Black Olive Pesto Pizzette recipe that is featured below. The Pizzette pairs well with the SIMI Winery Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Black Olive Pesto Pizzette:

 • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
 • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
