Wine Thursday: Alain & Cyril Gautheron Chablis

posted on April 5th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Alain Gautheron is the fifth generation to cultivate vines in Fleys, a village of 160 inhabitants. His winery and home are located directly across from the Premier Cru vineyard, Les Fourneaux. This 100% Chardonnay is comprised of parcels from three vineyards specifically Les Fourneaux, Côte des Prés Girots and Le Morein. High pedigree indeed! The wine stays in contact with the lees for about nine months after which it is fined, filtered and bottled. This Chablis is steely and mineral driven, displaying lots of focus and crisp acidity with floral, cool-climate orchard fruit, and citrus flavors. There is great depth of flavor to the wine combined with ample body and richness, balancing the sharp acidity perfectly. Enjoy this beauty with oysters, shellfish, sushi, and poultry. Sale price is $12.99! Suggested Retail $21.99 Promo valid from April 4 Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! Read More

Wine Spotlight: Heliotrope California Pinot Noir

posted on March 29th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Bright, fruity, creamy aromas and flavors of cherry, rhubarb custard, spiced watermelon, and white toffee with an even, vibrant medium-to-full body. A tingling finish with dusty tannins and light oak with a nice hint of plum, red berry fruit and vanilla nut. An excellent food wine with roasted or grilled veggies, poultry, red flesh seafood and mild cheeses. As for the intriguing name, Heliotrope – it is the name of a unique flower that follows the passage of the sun, collecting warmth and energy each day; come sunset, they turn back again, ready for the next sunrise. Pinot Noir grapes also embrace the brilliance of the California sun, developing crisp, ripe fruit characteristics that makes it wonderful with food or simply to quaff on its own. Suggested Retail $12.99 Sale price is 2 for $15.00! Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! Promo valid from March 28 All selections are 750ml unless otherwise noted.

Spring Matzo Kugel By a Meal and a Spiel

posted on March 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are so excited to share a recipe from the very awesome Los Angeles cooking school, Meal and a Spiel! It's perfect for Passover, breakfast the morning after, and leftovers following that! You simply will love this recipe that so beautifully embodies Spring! *** Most savory kugels call for at least twice as many eggs as I use and twice as much matzah. However the notion of eating all that AFTER the Hillel sandwiches, AFTER the gefilte fish, AFTER the matzo ball soup is just too much. We are celebrating liberation from slavery- let’s not re-enslave ourselves with a matzah-rock of indigestion! Light and refreshing, this matzo kugel rings the flavors of spring. A combination of onions, vegetables and herbs are used to accentuate the flavors that will embody Spring at your Passover table, far beyond the parsley on your seder plate. By all means, this makes a wonderful dish to eat throughout the week of Passover. It’s like a frittata with less eggs, so try it for breakfast… Read More
