Tim Talks - Episode 14 - Grafting Grapes

Tim will explain how we graft grapes to introduce new varietals on our estate vineyards. This is a process in which a new grapevine is produced by making a cut in the rootstock and then adding scion wood that is cut to fit inside the incision made in the rootstock. We're grafting three varietals: Counoise, Cinsault, and Syrah!

Tim Talks - Episode 12 - Wood-fired Pizzas

We hope you enjoy this fun and mouth-watering wood-fired pizza-making episode with Tim and Mary Louise Bucher. 

Wood-fired Pizza Dough Recipe from Trattore Farms

Ingredients -

  • 1 ½ cups warm water, divided
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 4 cups Italian “00”  organic flour by Molino Grassi*
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Place ¼ cup warm water in a small bowl and sprinkle with yeast.  Let sit for 5 minutes or until yeast is hydrated and creamy.  This will allow the yeast to be quickly absorbed by the flour. 

Place flour, salt, yeast mixture, and remaining water in a mixer bowl fitted with a dough hook.  Mix on low speed for 2 minutes to combine.  If the dough appears too wet and sticky and is not combining, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time while mixing until the dough takes on a ‘shaggy’ appearance.  Drizzle with oil and mix for 2 minutes more.  The dough should form a smooth ball and clear the sides of the bowl.  Turn the mixer off, cover the top of the bowl with plastic wrap, and let rest for 20 minutes.  Resume mixing on medium-low speed for 3 minutes, or until dough forms a smooth ball, clearing sides of the bowl.  Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Let sit at room temperature for 2 ½  hours or until doubled in size. The dough is then ready to use or can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours. If refrigerated, dough must be allowed to warm to room temperature before using. 

Makes 4-5 dough balls/pizzas.

*Type 00 Flour. Type 00 is the gold standard when it comes to pizza. The double zeros stand for the texture of the flour and how fine it was grounded. It’s easier to use and contains less gluten than other types of flour, which will allow you to spread the dough without breaking it.
