June 19, 2020 Newsletter

We are still curbside/delivery-only and will remain so until it makes logistical sense to do otherwise.

Our E-Comm is the easiest way to order, but feel free to call or email if you need guidance or aren't a fan of online shopping.
Pay at the door walk-ups are ok too.


Happyish Friday!

In what has been a long slog of heavy news, this week offered two bright points of light, courtesy of SCOTUS, and for that we are thankful. We are also thankful that our little fundraiser last week has so far raised nearly $1,000 for Movement Ground Farm in Tiverton. In fact, we've decided to add another couple of items so they can get closer to fully funding their solidarity CSA shares for low income families, and we'll again donate 100% of the purchase prices to the farm. More on that below! But the wines could make for very nice Father's Day gifts...we also have lots of affordable gift ideas (give us a call or send an email if you'd like suggestions!), and we're still doing 10% donation to the farm on Anchor & Hope wines.

We were going to do a little Juneteenth write-up in this newsletter (we don't know about anyone else, but we didn't learn about Juneteenth, or Tuskegee, or Tulsa in school) but then Rhode Map showed up in our inbox and we figured we'd just link to that instead – it's so well done with so many RI-centric tidbits! Sign up for it if you haven't already! They in turn link to Stages of Freedom's Road Guide to African American Sites in's a really cool resource. Late, local artist Arnold Prince makes the list, and we happen to have one of his carved wooden ships in the shop, perhaps we should put it in our window again....Stages of Freedom also linked to this article on Juneteenth recipes. There's a whole lot of yum happening there, and we really, really need to make that red punch!

We forgot to mention last week that Fearless Fish has started up the Fish Share once more. Pick up is Wednesdays, 2-6pm. Sign up if you love fresh fish!

New Arrivals

Finca Parera Fins Als Kullons 1Lt, Spain

Finca Parera is a father/son (Jordi/Ruben) operation, now on its fourth generation of the Parera family. They have been farming organically since 1999, and biodynamically since 2013 (certified). In addition to grapes, they also grow small plots of cherries, almonds, olives, and an assortment of vegetables. They also keep bees, which provides them with a small amount of honey.

Their vineyards are in the Upper Penedès, a low rainfall area about 250 meters from the sea, and planted on calcareous-clay soil. Some of their vines are around 80 years old.

Xarel·lo, Garnacha Blanca, and Sumoll. Unfiltered, unfined, No added SO2

Gustavo Martinez Kilako Itata Moscatel 2018, Chile

The grapes for this wine come from a single hectare of 25 year old vines grown in the coastal area of Quilaco, in Chile, from a husband and wife winemaking team who were on the Pipeño wagon before Pipeño was cool… This wine is 100% Moscatel, that’s destemmed and goes through 2 weeks fermentation followed by one week of macerating on the skins, then it rests in stainless steel for two months, followed by 3-4 months in French oak. It’s bottled unfiltered, unfined, and with very little SO2. Only 125 cases produced.

You can find most of our new beer (and wine too!) on our Instagram.

Cheers again!
