Black Piglet Food Truck Rolls into Davis Family Vineyards
Since Sonoma County is known for its farm-fresh produce, artisanal breads, wines, and, among other edible specialties, perfect pork, the Black Piglet Food Truck is a great addittion to the Davis Family Vineyards. What could be more worthy of celebration than a pop-up BLT stand at a winery through the warm harvest months?
Or should we say, truck. Zazu Restaurant + Farm chef-owners John Stewart and Duskie Estes have replaced their roadside stand at Davis Family Vineyards in Healdsburg with a fancy new food truck. The bright red chariot fires up from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Fridays through Sundays through October.
In Estes’ playful style, the mobile kitchen has a name. Its Black Piglet moniker is a tribute to Zazu’s Black Pig Meat Co., which crafts Bacon is dry cured with brown sugar for up to 21 days and then finished with about 12 hours’ applewood smoking.
The menu may look simple, but it’s sumptuous. There are Black Pig Bacon BLT’s, pork belly poutine, maple bacon donuts, strawberry Rosé sorbet and Jenny’s Pies, plus plenty of Davis Family wines.
Think BLT elevated. Stewart butchers his own pigs and makes his own bacon, and Estes crafts the donuts (plus everything else) from scratch. The two farm boutique produce at the several locations around Sonoma County, including at the Davis estate. That means you can pick your own tomatoes while they’re in season, and bring them to the truck for the perfect Sammy.
A Piglet lunch is the perfect start, middle or end of a day spent wine tasting in Healdsburg. Savor your feast and Davis wines in the vineyard on the shores of the Russian River, then head on out to the dozens of downtown Healdsburg tasting rooms just minutes away.
