Winery of the Month -
Edna Valley Vineyard

October 5 - November 1

Edna Valley winery and its surrounding region is steeped in history. The area and eventual appellation saw its first grapes planted in the days of the California missions. Even back in the 1800s, it was believed that the grapes in this region were of the highest quality. The valley is shadowed by volcanic mountains and characterized by clay-rich soils and possesses one of California's longest growing seasons. An added agricultural benefit is that the valley is kept cool by breezes from the Pacific Ocean and morning fog, whereby locking in rich flavors and mouthwatering acids and minerality. By the 1970s, however, grape vines in the area had all but disappeared, until pioneering vineyard developer, Jack Niven, got word of the coveted fruit that once thrived here and began to plant his own grapes. The rest, as they say, is history. These wines can stand on their own but obviously will appeal to your palate as delicious food pairing vessels. Enjoy!

Cabernet Sauvignon

Reg $16.99 Special $12.99

This medium-bodied, classic style Cabernet offers up ripe red and black fruit flavors complemented by hints of leather, anise and spice. This wine has a balanced acidity and finishes with fine, firm tannins. A small dollop of Merlot softens the palate and enhances the texture. Perfect foil to your favorite cuts of steaks, burgers, stews and meat loaf.

Sauvignon Blanc

Reg $12.99 Special $10.99

A nice balance between the lime-infused New Zealand style of Sauvignon Blanc and the ripe, melony style found in warmer climates. It conveys a touch of lively grapefruit-like zing without being aggressive and would be a good choice to enliven one of our rotisserie chickens. It will also pair well with shellfish due to its wonderfully concentrated aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, and lime, complemented by undertones of fresh-cut grass.


Reg $12.99 Special $10.99

Opens with classic aromas of black cherry jam, plum, and cedar complemented by hints of leather. Fine tannins and a bright acidity create rich, balanced flavors of blueberry, cocoa powder, anise and black cherry that lingers on the finish. Great to pair with lamb, our hand-made pork and poultry sausage, sautéed veggies and red pasta sauce dishes.


Reg $12.99 Special $10.99

The Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay displays an attractive bouquet of quince, pear, ripe apple, apricot and light pineapple, with underlying spice notes of cinnamon and clove. A fresh mouth feel, hints of vanilla and a bright acidity combine to form a long, pleasing finish in this medium-bodied wine. Excellent with our macadamia crusted trout, stuffed salmon and grilled poultry.

Pinot Noir

Reg $16.99 Special $12.99

Aromatically complex, this wine displays nuances of rose petal, cola, earth and black cherry. This Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with a full mouth feel, fine tannins and a long finish. Excellent match with red fleshed fish such as Ahi, salmon and steelhead trout.
