Wine Thursday: Sisters Ridge North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc

posted on May 31st, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Most Sauvignon Blancs that hail from New Zealand have Marlborough as a point of origin. This mouth-watering gem comes from the lower region of the south island, North Canterbury, which has a cooler climate, producing brisk acidity and minerality. This aromatic Sauvignon Blanc combines lime citrus, tart apple and cut grass characteristics on the nose. The palate is dry but very fruity; quite full-bodied, and finishes with lime/mandarin notes and grapefruit-like acidity. Pair this Kiwi beauty with shellfish, chicken dishes and anything that uses goat cheese in the recipe. Suggested Retail $14.99 Sale price is 2 for $15.00! Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! Promo valid from May 30 All selections are 750ml unless otherwise noted. No rain checks.

Copper River Salmon is Here!

posted on May 21st, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Yes, you've read correctly! We officially have our hands on the extremely limited, beautiful, and decadent, Copper River Salmon! It's an Alaskan salmon that's so special, it's the gold standard for chefs, restaurateurs, and die-hard salmon connoisseurs. Harvested from the pure and pristine waters of Alaska's Copper River, this sustainable fish is pretty special. That's because every year, from May through September, Copper River King, Sockeye, and Coho salmon return to the river to make the very difficult journey up the glacial fed waters to spawn in their birthplace. As a result of this intense task, Copper River salmon are extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids and also, in their melt-in-your-mouth texture that they're known for. Coveted by anyone who has ever enjoyed it before, this salmon comes with a very, very short season and can also be very hard to find. Right now, we have Copper River King available, also known as Chinook. It is most celebrated for its giant… Read More

Copper River Salmon is Coming…Stay Tuned!

posted on May 16th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Keep Checking Back for Updates on when Copper River Salmon is in stores.... We've long awaited this rare and prize-winning salmon and it's almost here! Copper River season officially began and we have already received our first allotment of the delicious, lean, ruby-red salmon with a subtle and mild flavor that you're sure to love.

With so few caught, we're extremely proud to be a distributor of this rare and decadent fish. The Copper River derives its name from the rich copper deposits found along the riverbank. First used by the Alaska native population, and later by settlers of the Russian Empire and the United States, this massive body of water has 13 major tributaries, is a mile wide and runs at 7 miles per hour. Dropping an average of 12 feet per mile and draining 24,000 square… Read More
