New Pairing

This week, fresh of of an ACS win we have Marieke Gouda with Foenegreek. From Holland's Family Farm in Wisconsin. Foenegreek is a seed native to Holland where Marieke is originally from. It has a nutty flavor with a distinct maple aroma and taste. Don't let the aromas fool you, this buttery, creamy , sweet nutty cheese is good anytime, not just a breakfast food.

Jan suggest the 2007 Trace Merlot from Mount Oso Vineyard in California. Forget what you've hear about Merlot, this is a shining example of what a good Merlot tastes like. Aromas of vanilla, blueberries and coffee beans lend depth and lusciousness to this fantastic red. Come in and try a taste of it yourself this weekend. You'll love it!

You might have been hearing some whispers around town. The question on everyone's mouth is "Is Pastoral opening a new location?" Well, today we can tell you, the answer is YES!

We are excited and pleased to announce that we will be opening a third location at the French Market late this October. For more information and to read the official Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine press release take a look here.
