Wines of the Month:


J. Lohr – wines from the central coast of California.  These wines are cool climate varietals from the Estates tier of wines produced by J. Lohr and are selected this month as excellent accompaniments to your Thanksgiving meal.

Bay Mist Riesling  2012

Winemaker Notes:  The 2012 Bay Mist White Riesling is a youthful, brassy yellow color with attractive aromas of apricot, lychee, pear and white flowers. The flavors are very clean and bright with apricot, pippin apple and lychee fruit balanced by a dollop of natural grape sweetness and crisp acidity.

Nov. Special: $13.95 per bottle or 2 for $25.90


Wildflower Valdiguié  2011


Winemaker Notes:  The vibrant 2011 Wildflower Valdiguié is red-purple in color with bright aromas of blueberries, cherries, raspberries and red currants. The fruit complexion on the palate is equally bright, dominated by pomegranate and raspberry, with an earthy finish.


Nov. Special: $9.95 per bottle or 2 for $17.90 

Pasta of the Month:

Sweet Pumpkin Ravioli in Cinnamon Pasta – Perfect as an appetizer or dessert.   Serve with our mincemeat or a cheddar apple sauce (recipe on package).  Available in our freezer case.

                          Package of 10            $6.95


Cheese of the Month:

Cranberry WindsorDale


From the Vermont Farmstead Cheese Co., this cheese is homage to Britain’s famous farmhouse cheeses of yore.  This raw cow’s milk cheese is made using a late 1800’s recipe and a traditional peg mill imported from England.  The peg mill tears the curds versus traditional cutting for a more open crumbly texture.  The result is a creamy white cheese, the addition of cranberries creates a burst of tart flavor, and the cheese leaves a honeyed aftertaste.  Perfect for the holiday season. 


                   November Special @ $17.95/lb.
