A Perfection of Wine & Cheese Pairing: Beaujolais Village & Fromager D’Affinois

This is a truly memorable wine-cheese pairing! Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Village & Fromager D'Affinois Original and with Garlic & Herbs We wanted a wine and cheese pairing that would surpass your everyday wine and cheese pairing, and we hit on it with beautiful bottles of Beaujolais-Villages paired with Fromager D'Affinois. Our pals over at Marczyk Fine Foods suggested we try both the herbed and original versions of this luscious cow's milk cheese from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes...and oh how we swooned!

What Are We Drinking Now? The Piedmont Wine Project

Devin has a cloudy, tart beauty from Italy The Piedmont Wine Project Vino Bianco Meet autumn stoically. Cloudy due to the presence of residual yeast, you'll experience grapefruit aromatics with notes of peach and lychee. The austere acidity, with whispers of newly yellowed grass and hints of Golden Delicious apple, is a fine complement to umami-rich foods, especially soy sauce and sesame oil. Cheerfully mourn the passing of summer and celebrate the harvest season with a fruit-topped sushi roll for a complete experience. Chill, shake, and serve. The Piedmont Wine Project Vino Bianco $12.99/btl

What You SHOULD Be Drinking & Gifting Now? Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition

Perhaps the geekiest distilled spirit contrived in the past 50 years! Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition First, some history: For more than a century, American Rye Whiskey was almost exclusively produced in what was knows as a Three Chamber Still — a still that extracted not only distillate but, more importantly, unlocked oils and aromas hidden in the grains. The result was marketed as "heavy-bodied" — whiskey with complex flavors and a viscous finish. The last Three Chamber Still was destroyed just after World War II, thus ending a time-honored American tradition. Back to the present: [...]
