Our menus and palates change with the seasons, so this week we are easing into Fall flavors…Wines with a little more body and length, persistence without super heaviness.  
Are you a Sauvignon Blanc drinker?  Bordeaux Blanc is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon–the Semillon being key to a little more richness and texture.  Still lovely, crisp, refreshing, but a nice alternative to your summer porch pounder.  Greco di Tufo is from Campania–where they eat a lot of fresh seafood–and would be lovely with Nantucket Bay Scallops.  The Mainqué Rosé is flavorful and delish, with a tad more weight than the Provence styles we were reaching for in the heat of summer.  And if you already lighting the fireplace, the baby Super Tuscan Caburnio is what you need in your glass. 

Come sip this Friday!  

P.S.  They are bACK…

Yay, I’m on my way to France!   
It has been four long years and now I am counting the hours.

The catalyst for this trip is a special celebration.  It is the 10th Anniversary of Nantucket and Beaune (the heart of Burgundy) becoming sister cities.  The “twinning” or jumelage as it is called, occurred 10 years ago because Denis Toner had the vision to link the two places he loved most.  He saw a similar culture of history, food & wine, art, community & charm.  He made it happen and the celebration continues!  I, for one, am thrilled to eat & drink like a bonne vivante in the name of cultural exchange and wine appreciation.  Two members of our Nantucket selectman attended Le Jumelage ceremony in the 15th century Hospices de Beaune.  So special.
If you are on facebook, here are some photos of the original celebration and the 5 year reunion in Beaune.  There was a little post on our website, as well.

Once we leave Beaune, we head to Provence for a visit to some our favorite Rosé producers, including Domaines Ott, Chateau d’Esclans (makers of the beloved Whispering Angel & Rock Angel), Chateau Pradeaux in Bandol, Domaine de l’Ile on Porquerolles Island.  From there, we will head down the Costa Brava in Spain and stop by Bodegas Pinord, maker of our super popular Dibon organic cava.  We will have a few days of food & wine recon in Barcelona before heading home.  
Of course, I will be hitting every market and the brocante shops along the way, and hunting for great vintage shops in every town! 

Please note that as of 10/16, cV will be open Fridays & Saturdays only until mid-November, when we re-open full-time.  We close for the season January 1.

Cheers to Fall travels!
