    Beer!: Brasserie de la Pigeonnelle “Loirette” French Farmhouse Ale

    Why we love it: A better question would be: “Why do ALL of our Loire Valley vignerons love this beer so much?”  Maybe because it’s organic?  Maybe because it’s bottle fermented?  Pure malt? Unfiltered? Yeah, those certainly help, but it’s mostly because it’s just SO FREAKIN’ GOOD!

    Where it's from: All about the Loire Valley here folks.  This is the only beer allowed at one of the annual tastings that we go to.  We shrugged it off as there was much to taste and we weren’t necessarily looking for a beer.  But upon seeing how the winemakers were filling their cars with this beer, we knew we had to get in on it.  One taste at their stand and the rest is, as they say, history.

    Wine: Ca' dei Zago Prosecco "Col Fondo" 2013

    Why we love it: Col Fondo Prosecco, meaning bottle fermented (no autoclaves here folks), is the way that Prosecco used to be made back in the day.  Whether you prefer to shake this non-disgorged delight up before drinking or not, this’ll be one bubbly you'll be proud to call Prosecco.

    Where it's from: A small contingent of Williams Corner recently made its way to Valdobiadenne to visit the fabulous Cristian Zago for the first time.  We left absolutely enamored with the Veneto, its breathtaking landscapes, the hard-working vignaioli of the region (all rolling hills in Valdobiadenne = working by hand!), and most importantly, #Zago.

    Wine: J. Mourat Ch. Marie du Fou Rosé 2014

    Why we love it: This is one of our favorite rosés of the year, every year!  A vivacious blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Negrette, it checks all the right boxes for Rosé.

    Where it's from: Whether you try to pronounce Fiefs Vendéens or Mareuil à la Française, best of luck.  This awesome area is located just below the Loire River Delta, next to the Atlantic Ocean.  Jérémie Mourat (whose name is much easier to pronounce!) crafts this delectable rosé that brings together everything we love in rosé: Aromatic intensity, beautiful color, and that crisp, fresh taste that means it’s always prudent to bring two bottles instead of one.
