French Malbec: A Wine Tasting

Dark, easy to love, and even easier to drink, the Malbec grape has found untold popularity in Argentina, while many seem to overlook its origins in France.

Today, February 25th, we will be tasting four Malbecs, all from France.

We will explore two from its home in the foothills of the Pyrenees in southern France, and two from the Loire Valley in the north, where the grape has been grown for centuries under the local name Côt.

The tasting is from 12noon-3pm and is free for friends.


Ten Years Later: a Wine Tasting from 2007

Somethings show better with age.

Wines continue to slowly develop in the bottle as you let them rest. Those wines that are especially rough, or tart, or overwhelming (when they are young) end up growing up beautiful and complex (after a decade or so). Kinda like people in that way…

Today, Saturday, February 18th, we will be tasting three wines from 2007: one from Greece, one from Italy, and one from Argentina.

Not to be missed. Cheers!

  • Lovingston “Rotunda” Red Blend
  • White Hall Petit Verdot

The tasting is from 1-3pm and is free for friends.


Kelly Bronze, the Cadillac of Turkeys, Tasting Today

Kelly Bronze are not only heritage breed, humanely raised turkeys. They are wild-foraging, hand plucked, and dry aged (like beef!). They are an experience like no other.

Even the Washington Post thinks they’re awesome.

Today, Friday, November 18 from 12noon-5pm (ish), stop by the shop and taste this delicious turkey. A great opportunity to try before you buy.

Don’t forget: Thanksgiving orders are due by 5pm today!

Thanksgiving ordering deadline extended to Friday

Friends and family, we understand that life gets busy.

Maybe you are a last-minute-throw-it-together kind of person, or maybe you’ve been working so hard to meet a deadline that you’ve lost track of time, or maybe you have gone off-grid and not noticed that Thanksgiving is next week.

Whatever the reason, we’re here to help you get ready for this important holiday. We are extending the ordering deadline for turkeys, side, and everything else until this Friday, Nov 18 at 5pm.
