Wine Pick #1:
2016 Maison Roy & Fils Chardonnay
 Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Marc-Andre Roy and winemaker Jared Etzel established Domaine Roy & Fils in 2012 as a means to further the heritage of their winemaking fathers, who founded legendary Beaux Freres Winery in 1991. They strive to create timeless wines through a holistic relationship with the land that has, as its bedrock, a commitment to organic farming in conjunction with a minimalist winemaking practice that affords their wines a purity and transparency of vintage and terroir. As a result, this chardonnay is a worthy rival to the best Burgundy has to offer.  A true Rockstar!
Wine Pick #2
2015 Domaine Giudicelli Patrimonio Rouge
Patrimonio, Corsica, France
It was a yearning to return to the Edenic lands she remembered as a girl that drove Muriel Giudicelli to reclaim her family vines in Corsica.  From a plot that was beyond organic, having never seen a drop of chemicals and worked in accordance with the cycles of the moon, she knew biodynamic farming and non-interventionist winemaking was the way forward. Her reverence for the interplay of limestone, schist, and granite on her parcels in the famed Campo Gallo sub-region of Patrimonio makes her wines unlike any other from this island garden. Like another Corsican, this wine will conquer your wine-loving world.
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
Fontina Fontal 
Fontal Cheese is a whole milk cheese that is mainly produced in northern Italy. Soft, mild & creamy, Fontal belongs to the Fontina-style family but is set apart by its versatility making it a great cheese to keep stocked in your fridge. Fontal is suitable as a table cheese and can also be melted into sauces, thickly shredded over pasta or pizza, or pressed into a gooey grilled sandwich. It tastes slightly milky with fine spice and is not very salty. The rind of Fontal is thin, smooth and elastic with an orange-red color and the paste is compact, white in color, with sparse eyes. The careful processing and traditional ripening give it a harmonious buttery milk aroma with a delicate spicy fragrance. Excellent eaten with warm bread and jams!
