As we gradually ease into the cooler temperatures of Autumn, our dining choices will start tilt to heartier dishes. These wines will go along with some of the more traditional Fall cuisine... however, if you are simply in the mood to quaff some pleasant vino on its own they will fill that bill as well. We are throwing in a nice corkscrew that will surely get you through all the bottles being opened the next few months!
Provins L'Alpage Fendant 2019
Fendant is the name in the Valais for the iconic Swiss variety, Chasselas. While the climate in the Valais is one of if Switzerland’s warmest and driest, the character if Chasselas grown, in the rocky alluvial schist and limestone soils at the foot of the Alps is more mineral and delicate than, the versions of this variety grown in the famed Grand Crus of Lavaux. For this reason, Fendant is the most prized wine for pairing with Swiss cheeses, fondue, and raclette.
La Bernarde Cote de Provence Rose 2019

and lavender notes. Will pair nicely with smoked fish or charcuterie.
