Central Market continues their tribute to Spain with 20% off Spanish wine this weekend when you buy at least 6 bottles, 25% off 8 bottles or more. Run by tonight for a chance to meet Álvaro Palacios, of Bodegas Palacios Remondo in Rioja.
I just had the chance to have lunch with Alvaro this week and he is as charming as his wines are vibrant, elegant and memorable. Grab a bottle of the Placet Valtomelloso, a white Rioja made from 100% Viura grapes which open in the glass transforming the wine from rich mineral flavors to subtle floral and herbal notes.
Also this weekend at The Taste of Addison Robert Mondavi Winery will host their Discover Wine tour where guests will learn everything about wine from how it is made, to what is the best pairing. This is the 5th year of the Mondavi wine discovery tour with the goal to help both wine novices and aficionados enjoy their glass just a little bit more.

My mother grew up in a small town outside of Archer City, Texas. A couple of nights a week she watched her mother go out in the back yard, grab one of the many chickens running around the yard and snap its neck. A couple hours later the former “pet’ was devoured for dinner. It wasn’t a trend; it was how they lived.
Now having a groovy chicken coop in your backyard or on a patio in New York is trendy. The gals over on the D Home blog have the scoop on the “must have” coop. If you want to get your backyard bird party started, the folks at Northaven Gardens have the knowledge and supplies. I’d rather have a goat.
