When I sent the
newsletter earlier today, I completely forgot to mention the most
holidays, the Frambelle port-style dessert wine is now on sale
. Bear in mind that this is a 500ml bottle --
half again larger than your typical dessert wine (375ml), which
typically sell in the mid-twenty-dollar range.
This wine makes an outstanding digestif all by itself, or serve
with new york style cheesecake, or simply with nibbles of dark,
dark chocolate. Bring it to your Christmas parties and delight
Additionally, our executive chef Andrew MacMillen has come up with
a recipe using Frambelle. His "Frambelle
Rosemary Roast Duck
" was intended as an alternate
Thanksgiving dinner, but we're a little past that now as I'm so
late with newsletters. It would be a wonderful meal any time,
especially on a chilly night with friends during the holidays.
wish to play around a bit, try our "Framcello" layered cocktail
combining it with an Italian Limoncello. The distinct yellow and
red layers are eye-catching as all get-out and the drink is
delicious! How can you go wrong with raspberry and lemon, yum?!
All our wines are available this weekend (1st wknd Dec.) at the
winery tasting room, and at the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market.
