Dinner at the Weber Ranch—A Summer's Evening

Pizza fireDinner is served in the outskirts of Petaluma, California at the Della Fattoria—Weber Family Ranch.   For 2016, these legendary, festive events will include dinner, corkage, tax and gratuity at $100 a person. You are welcome to bring as much wine as you like. During the evening, take a self-guided tour of our bakery's wood-fired ovens and watch the bakers as they make artisanal breads using ancient methods and the finest ingredients. Stroll in the flower and vegetable gardens where many of the organic vegetables are grown that will make their way to the dinner table that evening. The Weber Ranch is a working farm complete with sheep, chickens and friendly dogs and cats.

Dinner is served family style on our handmade tables under the wedding oak. We offer local cheeses, Della breads, artisanal salumi, nuts and fruit to start. For the main event we bring out big platters of seasonal salads, Aaron's potatoe gratin and grilled meats from our outdoor flat top wood-fired BBQ.To finish we serve coffee and seasonal fruit desserts made by our pastry crew at our downtown cafe.

These events usually start around 3:00pm and go to 7:00pm. Guests should dress in layers as the temperature does tend to drop going into the evening. Advanced reservations are required. Space at each scheduled dinner is limited and you are advised to reserve your seats well in advance.

Watch the Bread Bake...The breads that have made Della Fattoria famous are baked in the wood-burning ovens of the semi-open baking house just a few steps away from the wedding oak and the evening's meal. At about dinner time, the master bakers are in full swing and the aromas of the baking bread spread over the ranch and present an incitement to the evening's guest to come watch and to marvel. The 'dance of the bakers' is nothing short of magical.

Important Notes:

—Ranch Dinners tend to fill well in advance, so make your reservation early.
—Private dinners by arrangement—50 person minimum.
—Supervised children over 12 years of age welcome.
