Grower Champagnes: Who is Your Champagne Farmer?

The holiday season is here (hooray!) and that means a plethora of social gatherings, along with the obligatory gift giving. The challenge of this time of year is how to make holiday parties a little more festive (read: exciting and actually fun) and your presents unique (read: unforgettable).   No need to stress about any of this as adding a bottle of sparkling wine to the equation is always an excellent idea. However, let’s kick it up a notch from there. You buy your eggs from Boat Yard Farm, you get your carrots from Moors End Farm and you pick your own tomatoes at Bartlett Farm. Why not purchase, partake and give a little “Farmer Fizz” to showcase some quality producer grown and made Champagne along with supporting your local Champagne farmer?

Celebrating American Wines

Not only does Labor Day mark the (unofficial) closing of the summer season, more importantly it is a celebration to honor the working people and the contributions that they have made to our country over the years. Our celebrations often include parades, barbeques and most likely beverages in which to toast those who have paved the way for our country at some point in history to be what it is today. With this in mind, we look at a handful of pioneers in the California wine business who are considered icons in the industry based on the contributions they have made to the trade. ROMANCING THE LAND The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill in Napa Valley started more than four decades ago.   When Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed the magnificent view of forests and wildflower-filled meadows from this location, they knew this is where they wanted to be. In 1967, they became the first winery to plant vineyards...Read More >

WHAT TO POP FOR POPS

A SPARLKING GOOD TIME ON NANTUCKET Mid-August is fast approaching and while some people are packing their bags to head back to school, others are reveling in the beautiful summer beach days that make Nantucket what it is. What better way to embrace this feeling than with music, dancing and fireworks at one of Nantucket’s best beaches. ‘Pops on Nantucket’ is an annual fundraiser, and the largest of its kind, to benefit the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket and help to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community. Well, I’ll drink to that! Here is a quick list of sparkling options to help you celebrate and boogie the night away at this frolicking, fun beachside event. ARRIVE WITH LAMBERTI PROSECCO DOC The house of Lamberti is located on the shores of Lake Garda in Northeast Italy’s Veneto region. The winery is named after one of the...Read More >
