Celebrate the hard work of mom with Tom Gore Vineyards Chardonnay

Parents put endless time and dedication into raising their children, nurturing them and supporting them throughout their development so they can thrive on their own. Tom Gore, a second-generation California grape farmer who stomped grapes alongside his father shortly after learning to walk, implements a similar philosophy with his winemaking: meticulously overseeing every stage of the grape farming process to ensure quality wines are produced time and time again.

For Mother’s Day this year, the gift of Tom Gore is a fabulous representation of mom’s hard work and dedication to her children as well as being a great tasting wine.

For mother figures, life becomes a balancing act once kids enter the equation. This year, mom and mom figures alike will love a Chardonnay just as well balanced as they are. Featuring warm and buttery notes, tropical fruit and oak spice, Tom Gore Chardonnay is best paired with grilled seafood and roast chicken. The perfect pour for Mother’s Day.

Wild Pacific Halibut



  • two to four 5 oz portions of Ocean Wise wild pacifc halibut
  • Lightly season each portion with ¼ tsp kosher salt


  • Preheat a cast iron, or a heavy bottomed stainless steel, pan to high heat
  • Lay portions of seasoned fish into the pan.

Halibut is great, but Ling cod, or wild BC salmon would work perfectly also.

  • Pan sear the fish for 20 seconds to begin the caramelization and then place the pan into a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes
  • Remove the pan and fish from the oven, gently flip the fish over, add a knob of butter and baste the fish for 20 seconds.
  • Remove the fish from the pan and set aside. Chef Tip Do not over cook.

Perfectly cooked warm fish is always way better than overcooked hot fish.
