Guyaux Truffles Our favorite truffles are back in stock just in time for the holidays! Great as gifts, stocking stuffers or as part of a dessert tray, these truffles are frequently imitated but never matched. Intense dark chocolate flavor. They truly are melt-in-your-mouth magic. Available in multiple sizes including a basket that is perfect for gift-giving.
Ritual Drinking Chocolates Ritual Chocolate produces small batch, bean-to-bar chocolate using classic European methods and premium cacao from select sources. “With no added flavors, our chocolate is an authentic expression of the flavor unique to each origin. We welcome you to take the time to taste the unique and balanced flavor of our chocolate, just as we have taken the time to create it.” Try the premium drinking chocolates sourced from Ecuador, Peru, Belize, and Madagascar.
The Panettone has arrived!
Shop now for the best selection! Perfect Thanksgiving hostess gift! Panettone are traditional Italian Holiday breads in a variety of flavors. The proofing process alone takes several days, giving the cake its distinctive fluffy characteristics. It contains candied orange, citron, and lemon zest, as well as raisins, which are added dry and not soaked. Many other variations are available such as plain or with chocolate. Enjoy with sweet wine or coffee.
Fromager D’Affinois Truffles Our all time favorite softie with shaved truffles – OMG! It melts on the tongue as the flavor of earthy, pungent truffles and sweet cream caress the palate. $28.00/lb
Pecora Rossa Sweet and creamy, with delicate sensations of boiled milk and fresh grass, this cheese takes its characteristic red and orange tones by the washing of the rind during the aging process with Annatto, a natural vegetable coloring used for centuries to color and protect cheese surfaces. $31.99/lb
Saint Nectaire A.O.P. Raw cow’s milk cheese. Soft, supple texture with occasional tiny holes giving the cheese nice lightness. The flavor is earthy and fruity, with a sweet grassy aroma. Pair with a bold, beefy red wine. $16.99/lb
Wine of the Week
“The 2016 Proprietary Red is blended of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it emits an incredible array of seductive floral notes—violets, lavender and rose hip tea—with a core of warm cassis, redcurrant jelly, dark chocolate, cigar box, tapenade and crushed rocks plus hints of bay leaves, beef drippings and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with vivacious black fruit sparked by red fruit, herbal and mineral accents. It is framed with a rock-solid line of firm, grainy, super ripe tannins and finishes with fantastic fragrance and freshness. Wow!”
