Give back while you shop!

This Sunday, April 3rd we are having our 2d Annual Dana Farber Fundraiser Day.
In conjunction with Melrose Bootcamp, and on behalf of Joy Fay who's running the Marathon and raising funds for the renowned Cancer hospital -- we are donating 15% of our total sales for the day -- to Dana Farber!

For one day only, we are waving our half case and case discounts -- we want to raise as much money as possible -- so please, come shopping Sunday!

We will be having a wine tasting as well that afternoon from 2-5 featuring wines from Martignetti, and the varietals will be decided as we get closer to the time.

We are so fortunate to live in an area that features some of the most amazing hospitals in our own backyard -- so shop for you, and donate towards the lives of others.

Thank you...

Got the Winter Blues? Taste the French Riveria & Italian Countryside....

This morning when I came in - it just felt like a duck kind of day.  And we have plenty for you to choose from!  We have whole Muscovy ducks, Magret Breast and Confit Legs.  Pair them with a fun Rhone or Burgundy wine and find yourself transported to France.  Not sure how to cook it?  It's easy, trust me.  And ask my friends at Food Network how to make it - you'll find some of the simplest and most delicious recipes, with minimal ingredients to use!

And what are your plans this weekend?  How about sampling a little bit of the Italian countryside...?

Saturday, from 3 - 6pm we're sampling out a Bolgheri & Vernaccia -- along with an assortment of Italian cheeses & roasted tomatoes.  Taleggio, Brenta, Grana Padano and Mozzarella.  Never heard of those types of wine?  Exactly the reason why we want you to come in and try them!

So leave this winter state of mind behind you - and transform your thoughts to a place romantic, a littler warmer - and delicious!
