Roasted Pork Loin with Fava Beans, Carrots, and Pesto

SIMI Winery Executive Chef Kolin Vazzoler grew up in North Vancouver, British Columbia, where his Italian grandfather made wine and grappa in the cellar and the family devoted much time to their garden where vegetables thrived year-round in the mild, maritime climate. So after stints at acclaimed restaurants in Vancouver, and 8 years as executive sous chef at Restaurant Gary Danko in San Francisco, it makes sense that he would return to his roots and create exquisite seasonal cuisine designed to pair well with SIMI's acclaimed wines. He pairs this dish with SIMI Sonoma County Pinot Noir & Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon.
