Halloween 1‑Week Countdown Checklist

posted on October 24th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Can you believe Halloween is just one week away? October has already come and {almost} gone. What do your Halloween plans entail? For many of us, the actual night, which falls on a not-so-fun Tuesday this year, will consist of trick-or-treating with our little ones all dressed up in costumes of their choosing. An evening with way too much candy and possible battles to relinquish said candy, it's just one of those holidays the kids can't resist. We have bags upon bags of candy just waiting for you too. Because unless you want to turn off your lights...and maybe the doorbell ringer too, the kids will be a-coming for their treats. And while candy is a Halloween must, there are tons of other fun items to consider too. Full Disclosure: We do not have your scary and elaborate haunted decor or your costumes. But we do have loads of candy, pumpkin craft beer, tabletop decor,  all the fixins' for caramel apples, and of course, every kind of pumpkin you could ever want. Your… Read More

Wine Thursday: La Tordera Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut

posted on August 24th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Okay, we have a great holiday weekend just around the corner where we can all enjoy the fruits of one’s ‘labor’. So as much as wine and craft beer sounds really tasty and will certainly be flowing, the notion of a chilled, crisp, fruity sparkler is very enticing. We found the perfect elixir, La Tordera Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut- This fine, fruit laced bubbly offers floral notes of white flowers, pear and lemon drop, with robust flavors of apple, citrus and ripe papaya. Even though the wine is created in a Brut style, there is ample bright fruit. The other unique element to this Italian sparkler is that it is vintage dated, 2014. That is indeed a rare offering and adds to the overall appeal of this gem. The perfect foil for grilled seafood and shellfish, as well as Prosciutto, stuffed mushrooms, creamy sauces and spicy Asian entrees. Prosecco is produced in the hills of Veneto in northeastern Italy, where the winery is located, and boasts the longest history in the… Read More

Wine Thursdays: Fattoria Del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano

posted on July 27th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Fattoria Del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano is a blend of Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and Mammolo, from a vineyard of Pliocene origin with mostly clay with stones and shells on the soil. The wine went through alcoholic fermentation for 5-7 days, followed by another eight days of fermentation on the skins. 70% of the wine aged in Slavonian oak casks for six months and 30% ages in French oak barriques for six months. The wine is bottle refined for three months. The result is a vivid ruby red colored wine with intense aromas of wild black cherry, violet and a subtle vanilla undertone on the nose. The full-bodied palate is elegant and well balanced with robust tannins. Pair it with first course dishes with meat sauces, stuffed pasta or casserole dishes and grilled red meats. Fattoria Del Cerro was founded in 1922 by the Baiocchi family and the estate quickly became an established part of the Montepulciano wine making community. Back in 1978 it was acquired by Saiagricola and emerged… Read More
