June is just flying buy and this Sunday is the last Sunday our stores will be closed (unless Christmas falls on a Sunday). We’ll be here on Sunday, July 2nd, open from 11 AM to 6 PM ready to help you with your 4th of July selections. Hope to see you then.

In the meantime, I need to slow the pace a little, take some time to enjoy the longest days of the year, have some fun and drink some wine. One thing I love about the French is they take the time to enjoy life. It’s fleeting so be present. I’m not saying be lazy, just don’t miss out. With that being said, I have some fun Southern French wines to try with some easy summer food. A little grilling, a little salad, and some sunshine. These wines from the “sunny South” are wonderfully made and great as a refreshing beverage or the perfect foil for a respite with seasonal fare. These are so good! Relax and enjoy.

Le Hameau Sauvignon Blanc Vin de France
Southern France “…provides a beautiful combo of pristine fruit, racy acidity, and soothing minerality. The lemon/lime and pear flavors are somewhat unusual for a French Sauvignon Blanc, as is the name of the varietal on the label. The even better news: This smooth beauty is almost as easy to find as it is to drink. It’s ideal for summer veggies, even difficult-to-pair tomatoes, and will cozy right up to grilled pork chops or seafood.” Bill Ward – Star Tribune
