Christmas Pairing and hours

Please note that all three of our locations will be closing at 6pm on Christmas Eve, and will be closed on Christmas Day. Give us 24 hours and we'll take care of any of your last-minute catering or gift basket needs for local pick-up only (delivery schedule is completely booked).

Our pairing this week is a new working on a classic. Stichelton and Port (no picture available)

Stichelton is a blue cheese hand-selected for us by the folks at Neal's Yard Dairy in London. Only available at a select few cheese shops in the world, this is a raw milk cheese very similar to the classic English Stilton, but a fantastic cheese in it's own right. 100% handmade, this cheese has a full flavor with a succulent buttery texture. Delicious on it's own, or of course with the classic Stilton choice, Port.

Graham's Six Grapes Reserve Port has a seductive, rich aroma of ripe plums, cherries and dark chocolate with a long, lingering finish. Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port blends. It is a very full-bodied, luscious wine drawn from the same vineyards as Graham's Vintage Ports. Blended from two or three years' harvests, the wine is an average of five to six years old when it is lightly filtered and bottled.

Delicious combination just in time for the holiday season!
