Trends

In the wine world, varietals and types of wines gain and lose popularity for any number of reasons and seem to go through trends. Right now the trend is Rose,Rose, Rose

Since I like to stay current in the store and not let things get stale, I look at these trends from all angles and find the best buys for us-you and myself! To that end, I have an incredible selection of dry Roses from around the world, from South Africa, Moldova, France, Austria, Spain, California, Washington State, and others. I love Rose with seafood, the flavors together are divine! All by itself or with the many foods it tastes great with, Rose is fresh, exuberant, fruity but dry, and completely delightful! Stop in and peruse my "Rose Garden" , it's chock full of gems.

WINE

This week our friend AJ will be here on Friday with me tasting a new favorite red blend by Cline Cellars-

Farmhouse Red Blend

Farmhouse takes its name from the school house located at Green String Farm in Petaluma, California. It serves as the library and study room for conscientious students from around the globe seeking to learn the Green String method of sustainable farming. This method of “beyond sustainable” farming, was developed by Bobby Cannard and Fred Cline. Two kindred spirits who believe that study and observation of nature can lead to balanced and better farming practices. Students at Green String learn how to respect the earth and respond to the needs of their environment as they raise food that brings health to local populations. The goal is to teach students how to improve the biology of the lands that they steward while growing naturally healthy food.

This juicy red is full-bodied with flavors of dark berries and black-pepper. The wine has smooth tannins and luscious fruit and should age well into the future. On sale for only $9.99.


and Mohua Sauvignon Blanc

This wine is powerfully aromatic, bursting with citrus, passionfruit, and crushed mint. On the palate, punchy tropical and herbal flavors flow to an uplifting, lingering finish. Deliciously refreshing. $13.99



RECIPE

Garlicky Lemon Baked Tilapia


Ingredients

4 tilapia

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

5 tbsp. butter, melted

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon

1 lemon, sliced into rounds


Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Season tilapia with salt and pepper and place on a small baking sheet.

Mix together butter, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and zest then pour over tilapia. Place lemon rounds on top and around tilapia.  

Bake tilapia for 10-12 minutes or until fish is fork tender.



BEER

Terrapin's “T-Time” Berliner Weisse is a tart and thirst-quenching wheat beer made with fresh tea and lemon peel. This easy-to-drink summertime refresher will get you back into the swing of things both on and off the course. We think you will like it if you try it, so it will be open for tasting Friday between 2-7pm. Stop in and sip some!


Whiskey

I haven't been shy about telling you which whiskies I like so many of you know already of my fondness for High West whiskey.

The Double Rye is my personal go to for sipping and mixing. I love it in the summer with lemonade and either mint or basil, both are delicious! We have the best price on Double Rye for far and wide- only $33.99 for a fifth.

I will be hosting a High West event this Friday so that you can taste my favorite and get a bottle engraved for that special someone-even if it's yourself.

Most of the High West whiskies will be open,

Rendevous,Double,Campfire and American Prairie for sure will be. It will be a very nice tasting, I encourage my whisky drinkers to stop in from 5-8pm on Friday.


I hope I see you this weekend,

Beth
