Porttable Oil and Tapenade Bring the taste of Portugal to your table. Porttable’s Original Olive Oil is made from four varieties of olives from the Douro region: Cobrancosa, Verdeal, Negrinha de Freixo and Madural. The olives are harvested late in the season (the end of November into early December), resulting in a soft, fresh tasting traditional olive oil. It has a slightly green color and is perfect on salads, oven-roasted vegetables or as a dipping sauce for crusty breads. Porttable’s Green and Black Olive Tapenades are fresh, fruity, and intense, with the perfect texture of small bits along with the paste. Enjoy on bread as a substitute for butter, or as an ingredient in cooked dishes.
Vietri Modello dinnerware draws inspiration from the fashion runways of Milan, bringing the feel of textiles to your table. Using crisp lines and classic, fabric-inspired patterns, Vietri artists create a mix of refreshing blue and white that are as timeless as they are on-trend. Choose a few pieces to compliment your current dinnerware, or set the whole table with a mix of pattern that never goes out of style. Vietri Modello dinnerware is made of Italian stoneware, a clay that is less porous than others and provides a beautifully smooth finish for the brilliant blues and whites of this pattern.

Wine of the Week
Chateau de Lussac ’15
“The 2015 de Lussac is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and offers a warm plums and blackberry tart nose with touches of fungi, dusty earth and tar. Medium to full-bodied with a great core of expressive earth and savory layers supported by chewy tannins, it finishes on an earthy note.”
