Unique Finds & New Favorites

We look at our inventory as a curating process.  Each item has been hand selected by one of the team and has to not only be incredibly delicious but also well made, and when possible, 100% organic.  You'll find meat from salami to prosciutto, cheeses for the most discerning pallet and new sundries we've found on our travels that are unique and sure to be new favorites.

Alicante Bouschet or Alicante Henri Bouschet is a wine grape variety that has been widely cultivated since 1866. It is a cross of Petit Bouschet (itself a cross of the very old variety Teinturier du Cher and Aramon) and Grenache. Alicante is a teinturier, a grape with red flesh.  One of the few red grapes with red flesh, Alicante Bouschet is an oddity that makes big, juicy red wines. ... Over its 150-year history, Alicante Bouschet has always been in the background – as a secret ingredient to embolden other red wines.

Alicante Bouschet is also one of the few varieties of Vitis vinifera that is a teinturier: a grape with red, rather than white, colored juice (the pulp of most vinifera, such as Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, is a clear white). Once upon a time, Alicante Bouschet was the second most planted wine grape in California; seeing its heyday during Prohibition years because of its thick, dark skin, and ability to withstand long train rides from California to the East Coast to get to home winemakers.

Alicante Bouschet or Alicante Henri Bouschet is a wine grape variety that has been widely cultivated since 1866. It is a cross of Petit Bouschet (itself a cross of the very old variety Teinturier du Cher and Aramon) and Grenache.[1] Alicante is a teinturier, a grape with red flesh. It is one of the few teinturier grapes that belong to the Vitis vinifera species. Its deep colour makes it useful for blending with light red wine. It was planted heavily during Prohibition in California for export to the East Coast. Its thick skin made it resistant to rot during the transportation process. The intense red color was also helpful for stretching the wine during prohibition, as it could be diluted without detracting from the appearance. At the turn of the 21st century, Alicante Bouschet was the 12th most planted red wine grape in France with sizable plantings in the LanguedocProvence and Cognac regions.[2] In 1958, Alicante Bouschet covered 24,168 hectares (mainly across southern France); by 2011, plantings represented less than 4,000 hectares. This scenario is largely reversed in other regions of Europe, and in southern Portugal, where its wines are highly prized and frequently outscore traditional autochthonous varieties.
