Come taste the best turkey ever

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.

This Saturday, November 12 from 10am-2pm, Kevin from the Kelly Bronze farm will be here to taste out his delicious turkey. A great opportunity to try before you buy.

Don’t forget: Thanksgiving orders are due next week!

Wine Tasting: Calabretta

Sicily’s Mount Etna has an ancient winemaking culture, sharing Barolo’s tradition of long aging in massive old botti. The resulting delicacy and nuance evoke comparisons not only to Barolo, but to Burgundy. In fact, Jancis Robinson recently posted that Etna is “the Burgundy of the Mediterranean”.

Today, few adhere to Etna’s ancient practices. But one great estate, Calabretta, continues to make its majestic reds as in the past, releasing them only after a decade in their cellar. The wines are extraordinary—and the prices are extraordinarily low.

Wine Tasting: Turkish Wines

Turkey is one of the most ancient wine-producing regions in the world, the country has always had one of the world’s most extensive areas of vineyard, and the land carries with it over 600 indigenous varieties. Yet Turkey battles the culture wars between European influence, Middle Eastern instability, and foreign pressures, all while being a secular country in the Muslim world.

Luckily, some of their precious wines make it out of their borders, across the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, and into our store.

This will be the focus of this Saturday’s wine tasting: The mystery of Turkish wine! Continue reading Wine Tasting: Turkish Wines
