One thing winemaker Sam ZinPunk enjoys almost as much as making great wines is creating exciting, unique dishes to pair with and enhance each varietal and blend. This passion drove her to develop Crickets & Tumbleweed, a culinary line that includes virgin olive oils, infused olive oils and vinegars, infused sea salts, salt-free herb and spice seasonings, and wine jellies – all curated and Tumbleweed Tested by SAM herself. Her motto – Enjoy life in the SLO Lane! Enjoy the simple things in life, beginning with a culinary exploration in your own kitchen with friends and family.
