APRIL 2021 CELLAR CLUB

APRIL 2021
CELLAR CLUB
Our Sweetest Spring month celebrates everything fresh and new!
They say April showers will bring May flowers but we are ready to welcome in any weather spring will bring with open arms. From farm-fresh cheeses to wines that are perfect for warmer temperatures and enjoying the longer days and fresh air, spring is a sweet time! 
Thank you for being a member of 
The Cellar Club, cheers!
Wine Pick #1:
Iron Wolf Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Columbia Valley, Washington, USA
Iron Wolf is a Vermont-based, family wine label that showcases wines that speak of their origins. Sourced from small-scale, modest, family-owned vineyards in Washington’s Columbia Valley AVA, these wines reflect the quality of their fruit. This bounty is then honestly and deftly expressed with a light-handed winemaking ethos. This venture is just the latest chapter in the legendary history of Tony O’Rourke, whose presence in countless facets of the Vermont food and wine industry spans decades. The living embodiment of joie de vivre, Tony is as much a force of nature as the wines he brings us. We can think of no finer ambassador for our “Sweetest Spring” theme this April than his Iron Wolf Sauvignon Blanc. As crisp and refreshing as the season. As welcome as the sun.
Wine Pick #2
Kivelstadt Cellars KC Labs Syrah 2019
Mendocino, CA, USA
Jordan Kivelstadt is the eponymous founder and driving force behind this month’s Cellar Club selection. The son of mother Nancy Kivelson and father Tom Angstadt, he began this winery in 2007 with enough family fruit to produce 125 cases of a remarkable syrah, and while production has expanded in both size and breadth, they remain small in all the best senses of the word. From the first vintage, the goal has always been to show how amazing California wine can be. Restraint, elegance, and uniqueness are the cornerstones of their wines. There’s an Old World aspect to their very New World wines. This is natural winemaking in all the best ways. Organic fruit, native yeasts, neutral oak, and little to no sulfur employed. Case in point, this syrah is fresh-fruited, spicy, and delicious without excess weight or new oak to obscure the wine’s essence. For our “Sweetest Spring,” we even suggest putting a bit of a chill on this red, especially if the day is full of sun and warmth. The grill beckons!
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
Boston Post Dairy, Artisan Greek Feta 
Family-run Boston Post Dairy is set in Enosburg Falls, Vermont, along the Missisquoi River, with a view of Jay Peak. The farm is named after the Old Boston Post Stagecoach Road, which runs right through the property. Robert and Gisele Gervais have been farming since 1962 along with their family of fifteen children. This delicious and traditional Greek-style feta is made with pasteurized goat's milk. It has rich and salty flavors with a slightly dry, crumbly texture. This cheese is great with honey or when crumbled onto a salad!
