But, you don’t have to take our word for it– come by on […]

| Featured Wine, New Arrivals, Picks

We love Eric Asimov’s idea of identifying 20 seasonal, affordable wines. We have followed his lead in creating a similar list filled with wines that we know are available in Vermont and that we know can be priced to stay under that $20 ceiling.

Oct 2019 Covered Bridge

Everyday we are thankful to live in this state whose identity is associated with preserving both non-human nature and small communities.

If we want to continue to celebrate Vermont’s small towns, to those volunteer efforts noted above we need to add mindfully shifting our shopping to support local merchants.

When we tried the La Ola in September, we knew that this was an Albarino that would carry over to fall and even winter, not to […]
