Wines of the Month:


Herencia Altès  – wines from Spain.  From the Terra Alta region tucked away in the south eastern corner of Catalonia, it borders Aragon and Valencia.

Herencia Altès Garnatxa Negra

Winemaker Notes:  Bright crimson in color, this wine is very expressive with notes of red fruits and minerals that leap from the glass.  Plenty of fruit on the palate, a touch of complexity and sweet tannins.  Pairs well with grilled meats.  

Herencia Altès Garnatxa Blanca


Winemaker Notes:  Very aromatic with notes of melon and white fruits on the nose.  On the palate it is balanced with a medium body and a nice crisp freshness.  Pairs well with simple tapas and grilled squid.

 Sept. Special: $10.95 per bottle or 2 for $19.90


Pasta of the Month:

Fall Gnocchi – a mix of saffron, spinach, and roasted red pepper make this a visual as well as a tasty addition to your fall dinner table.  Available in our freezer case.

Cheese of the Month:

Grafton 2 Year Aged Cheddar

From the Grafton Village Cheese Co. in Vermont. This 2 year award-winning (over one dozen) aged cheddar cheese is an artisanal cheddar handcrafted from premium raw cow’s milk from small Vermont family farms.  With its mellow tartness and creamy finish, this cheese is excellent when accompanied with dried fruits and nuts, crusty breads, and big wines.  Also an excellent compliment for fresh picked apples or apple pie.
