Our popular new small bite! The Dirty Martini Dip

Dirty Martini Dip

When you come in for a tasting experience at Shadow Ranch you are expecting fabulous wines, stunning views, and excellent service from our friendly hosts. What you may not be expecting is a delicious complimentary small bite with your tasting, or to be asking for the recipe before your experience is even complete! 

Lately at Shadow Ranch we've been offering a Dirty Martini Dip to pair with our wines and as an effective palate cleanser between sips. We serve this tangy, creamy dip with crackers or homemade flatbread, when available! It's a perfect appetizer to bring to dinner parties or to serve with your charcuterie board. And for those of you who have been asking, I've shared the recipe below:


  • 2 cups olives + their juice
  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 5 oz blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Using a food processor, blend together the cream cheese, blue cheese, sour cream, green onions, black pepper, and olive juice.
  2. Roughly chop the olives and add them to the food processor last. You still want some recognizable olive chunks in the dip.
  3. Serve with crackers, vegetables, or flatbread! We like to serve it with a couple of olives on a skewer, as a nod to it's martini inspirations.
