7Cellars was founded by football icon John Elway and his business partner, Jeff Sperback. John’s desire to create a wine that would live up to his ideals and be a proud representation of his family’s name led him to develop 7Cellars. The pair partnered with iconic winemaker Rob Mondavi, Jr. to release 7Cellars’ first vintage of reserve wines: Elway’s Reserve Collection. A line of best in class, superior wines. After selling out and seeing huge success, 7cellars decided to expand. They released The Farm Collection to include more varieties at an everyday price-point.
7Cellars is passionate about developing a portfolio of world-class wines, and boy… have they done an incredible job. The award-winning wines at 7Cellars are made from the finest grapes, sourced from world-renowned wine-making regions. All grown at The ONEHOPE Winery, Featuring 7Cellars, nestled in the heart of Napa Valley. A visit to the winery will bring you outstanding food and wine experiences complimented by breathtaking views. Check it out here.
We are so excited to be partnering with a company committed to exquisite taste, quality, and excellence. Dream Dinners and 7Cellars are here to bring a 5-star dining experience to the comfort of your home. Check out these professional pairings from our very own Chef Laura, order your favorite dinners and bottles of wine, and prepare to be pleased.
1. Creamy Chicken Risotto & 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay
Our Creamy Chicken Risotto and 7Cellars 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay were made for each other. Satisfy your hunger with creamy risotto with chicken, bacon, and vegetables topped with sliced almonds. Then, quench your thirst with 7cellar’s Chardonnay. A medium-bodied, bright, fruit-forward wine with flavors of green apple and a touch of toasted oak on the finish. When combined, the creaminess of the risotto pulls out the wine’s butter and cream quality. Every bite (and sip) will have you falling in love!
2. Mini Turkey Meatloaves with Bacon Ranch Green Beans & 2020 The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
These meatloaves may be mini, but they are mighty with flavor. Enough flavor, in fact, to stand up next to the full-bodied 2020 The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. This rich cab has deep blue and black fruit notes, warm spice components, and a velvety finish. That’s a lot of flavors for one dish to match, but our Mini Turkey Meatloaves with Bacon Ranch Green Beans is the perfect contender. These mini meatloaves are topped with brown sugar and stone-ground mustard glaze. Served with a side of green beans with crisp bacon and a ranchy twist.
3. Baked Penne Chicken Alfredo & 2019 The Farm Collection Pinot Noir
Our Baked Penne Chicken Alfredo is a beautiful dish that could go either white or red in wine choices, so the pinot noir is perfect. The Medium body and bright flavors of 7Cellar’s 2019 The Farm Collection Pinot Noir make it the best pair. Like our Baked Penne Chicken Alfredo, this wine is elegant and refined. There are notes of bright cherry, ripe plum, cola, and dried herbs on the palate, with vanilla and toasted oak on the finish. The wine is perfectly paired with our chicken and penne pasta tossed in a creamy alfredo sauce and baked to perfection.
4. Mini Chicken Pot Pies & 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay
The flaky puff pastry of our Mini Chicken Pot Pie screams for the buttery layers of The Farm Collection Chardonnay. First, preheat the oven for our Mini Chicken Pot Pies. These mouth-watering puff pastries are filled with all-natural diced chicken, carrots, celery, and a creamy filling. While cooking, break out the wine glasses and fill them with this bright, fruit-forward, well-structured wine. You’ll want to wait until the oven dings to take a sip because this pair is meant to be enjoyed together.
5. Slow-Cooked Lasagna Soup & 2020 The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
Meet the coziest food and wine pairing around. This soup full of comfort works beautifully with the velvety and rich taste of The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. The warm notes of the wine go perfectly with the warm flavors of our slow-cooked lasagna soup. A combination of chicken, Italian sausage, veggies, and lasagna noodles topped with Italian cheeses. Every bite is beautifully complemented with a sip of 7Cellar’s The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon.
6. Pub Style Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & 2019 The Farm Collection Pinot Noir
The array of flavors in our Pub Style Chicken with Mashed Potatoes works with the open canvas of flavor in The Farm Collection Pinot Noir. Bite into marinated chicken breasts topped with bacon and melted cheese, finished with a drizzle of lite ranch. Then, sip on 7Cellar’s medium-bodied pinot noir. There are notes of bright cherry, ripe plum, cola, and dried herbs on the palate, with a touch of vanilla and toasted oak on the finish. This combination of flavors is brought out beautifully by our Pub Style Chicken with Mashed Potatoes.
7. Herb Crusted Steaks & 2020 The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
Classic herbed steak needs an equally bold yet smooth wine. Luckily, our herb-crusted steaks found their perfect match in The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. This lean steak is rubbed in a blend of original herbs and spices that enhance this smooth cab’s warm spice components and anise flavors.
8. Cod Fish N’ Chips with Tangy Tartar Sauce & 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay
The buttery, cool flavors of The Farm Collection Chardonnay are the perfect contrast to fried fish. Our Cod Fish N’ Chips are ideal for this bright and balanced wine. Flaky cod dipped in a light batter and pan-fried, served with a crisp, refreshing glass of Chardonnay. What more could you ask for?
9. Quiche Lorraine & 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay
Quiche with a light spring salad and chilled Chardonnay is heaven on earth. This is the ultimate pair to brunch with this spring. Fluffy eggs with bacon, onion, and swiss cheese in a buttery pie crust taste best served with a glass of chilled Chardonnay. More specifically, 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay by 7Cellars. Bright Chardonnay with tropical fruit, lime, and pear, complete with balanced acidity. Block off next Sunday after you place your order because you’ll be spending it with this delicious duo.
10. Mediterranean Power Bowl & 2020 The Farm Collection Chardonnay
Spices in the chickpeas of our Mediterranean Power Bowl are deliciously cooled down by a smooth Chardonnay. The dish brings a tasty blend of quinoa, zucchini, lemon herb dressing, feta, olives, and crispy spiced chickpeas. The flavors in this bowl blend beautifully with the combination of flavors found in The Farm Collection Chardonnay.
11. Lucky Dragon Pork Tenderloin with Jasmine Rice & 2019 The Farm Collection Pinot Noir
Historically, Pinot Noir pairs excellently with pork. But, it also pairs great Asian-influenced sauces. So, what happens when you have pork and Asian-influenced sauces? The Pinot Noir pair of your dreams. Our Lucky Dragon tender pork tenderloin is roasted in a savory-sweet Asian sauce and served with Jasmine Rice. Made the Pinot Noir pair of our dreams with 7Cellar’s 2019 The Farm Collection Pinot Noir.
12. Cattleman’s Pie & 2020 The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
The rich and comforting flavors in our Cattleman’s Pie work beautifully with the velvety and rich taste of The Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Cattleman’s Pie boasts flavors of ground beef, herbs, vegetables, creamy mashed potatoes, and parmesan cheese. The 2020 Farm Collection Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, warm spice flavors that complement the Cattleman’s Pie deliciously.
