They're Coming for our Wine...Again

We're in semi-newsletter-break mode, but we're forced to interrupt the silence with another call to action: the feds are threatening 100% tariffs on wine (and other stuff you probably like) again. We have until July 26th to comment on why we think this is a stupid idea, but in a country currently run by people who seem intent on its destruction, we're not exactly hopeful...(on that note, here are some unmarked federal "agents" kidnapping protesters in Oregon). That's not a joke, so tariffs may soon be the least of our worries, but whatevs, we gotta go through the motions 'til we can't!

And here's a petition to congress to pass the Restaurants Act, so maybe some of them will survive this pandemic and still be here if we're not Gilead by 2021. See, you really don't want us writing this newsletter right now, because We. Are. Cranky. Well, at least the one of us who writes the newsletter is...

On a positive note, as Covid spirals out of control in the U.S. (this sentence is like the backhanded compliment of positive notes), we are very thankful and appreciative of everyone who understands our continued curbside/delivery-only stance. However, the maskless conspiracy theorists who yell at us from the sidewalk (yes, even in Providence!) are sometimes a little entertaining...even if their aerosols are potential pathogens.
Because we don't want to give the impression that we're all doom and gloom, here's some new(ish) wine.

Domaine Lelièvre Côtes de Toul Gris de Pique Nique Rosé

We waited about two years for this wine, from the time we met the winemaker and asked for it, until last week when we got it. It was worth the wait.

Domaine Rimbert Cousin Oscar 2019

It's hard to believe we first met Cousin Oscar back in 2013. He's still super fun!

Champagne Béreche & Fils Brut Reserve NV

We get this Champagne about once a year, in tiny quantities, and it never stays on the shelf very long. Get it while you can.

Bottoms up!
