Ludovicus Garnacha,

Terra Alta 14.99

Organic

Big, beautiful aromas full of perfumed floral notes; ripe, dark berries; and nice touches of anise and other spices. Dry Farmed, low yield organic grapes are at the heart of this full-bodied gem. Perfect with a hearty stew, Blue Cheese Burgers or Tomato based dishes.

Domaine du Cedre Marcel Malbec 14.99

Biodynamic


There is Malbec from Argentina, and then there is Malbec from the Cahors, in France. Marcel has no hint of wood and is fruity, yet lightly tannic. Fresh, perfumed, juicy. Slurpable. Enjoy this wine by itself, or pair with cheese, pizzas, grilled meat and pasta.

Chateau Paveil de Luze “Petit Paveil”

50% cab 50% merlot

Sustainable cabernet and merlot vines.

Fruity, with savory freshness.

The wine is round and supple with fine grained tannins and a nice balance between spicy wood notes and primary red fruits. It pairs with grilled red meats, spice dishes or

barbeque foods. It will also complement a variety of cheeses.

Organic or Biodyamic or both!

Featured Cheese of the Week

Mistakes happen for a reason...we have to admit we ordered this beauty by mistake and we are so glad we did!!!

It is a wonderful addition to our cheese case.

Roth Private Reserve

Light and crumbly with very fine crystals of surprising taste, this raw milk masterpiece starts with a medium tanginess, then becomes sweet with honey and butterscotch notes. Cellar-aged for 6 month or more.

Pair with Hazelnuts, almonds, apples & grapes

A schmear of apricot or fig preserves and Riesling or hard cider. 

Perfect for shaving atop asparagus and prosciutto pizza,

or slicing on crostini topped with cured meats.
