We have turned that corner. Winter is officially more than half over (though not really in Vermont) and importantly, days are […]
Our customers have discovered Cinsault. Two of the most popular red wines that leave the shop in consistent volume are this wine, the Mas de Chimeres, “Oeillade,” and the L’Argentier, Cinsault. We love them both. The Mas de Chimeres is another independent, family-owned small domain. The mas is worked full-time by just 4 people– the […]
This wine is a perennial favorite of Windham Wines’ customers. We were without it for nearly a year. Then in early summer, the distributor was able to get more. Windham Wines took all but a case.
