Happy New Year! 
With resolutions in place, the turn of a decade, and the feeling of a brand new year ahead we are going to Try Something New!

Thank you for being a member of 
The Cellar Club, cheers!
Wine Pick #1:
Bodega Garzon Albarino Reserva 2018 
Garzon, Uruguay
"On his deathbed, a man of the vineyard spoke into Marcela's ear. Before dying, he revealed his secret: 'The grape,' he whispered, 'is filled with wine.'  Marcela told me this and I thought: If the grape is made of wine, then perhaps we are the words that tell who we are."  -Eduardo Galeano

Bodega Garzon was born in 1999 as a spare-no-expense agricultural project whose goal was to enhance the economic and environmental prospects for this corner of Uruguay. From truly exceptional soils on gently rolling hills, wines of remarkable quality have been born of the grapes that tell their stories.
Wine Pick #2
Domaine Faillenc Sainte Marie Noé 2017
Corbieres, Languedoc, France
The Domaine consists of a small, 8 hectares, the family-owned property of vineyards clinging to the rocky foothills of Mt. Alaric in the dry, rather harsh climate where grapevines, olive trees and scraggly brush alone survive. Evidence of grape cultivation and winemaking here dates back to Roman times and it is next-generation winemaker Jean-Baptiste Gilbert who sees that the future lies in the past. Eschewing "modern" vineyard and cellar norms, he's crafted this Cuvee from 100+ year old, Biodynamically-tended, carignan vines with natural yeasts, non-temperature controlled fiberglass tanks and little use of SO2. The wine speaks from its past and its future.
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
Vermont Farmstead, Blueberry Windsordale
The addition of whole wild blueberries creates a mellow sweetness that blends beautifully with the hint of tart apple, the honeyed aftertaste and the firm, flaky texture of Vermont Farmstead's take on the classic Wensleydale. WindsorDale is a raw-milk cheese similar to the one made famous by Wallace & Gromit. To keep true to the Wensleydale Style, Vermont Farmstead imported a European peg mill that tears the curds versus cutting, which set this cheese board star apart in both texture and flavor.
Perfect on salads or melted onto your morning bagel!
