MAY 2019 CELLAR CLUB

For those of us who are perpetually hunting for the unusual, the wine world is a mecca of delight. There are thousands of wine varieties, most of which exist only in specific micro climates. Despite how rare these varietal wines are, they are within reach and we are excited to introduce them to you. This month's selections focus on two wine varieties that are not very well known but are loved by those who do. Join us in trying something new this month with these adventurous and unique offerings! 
Thank you for being a member of The Cellar Club!
Wine Pick #1:
2017 Chateau de la Jousseliniere
Perle Bleue
St. Julien de Concelles, Loire, France
100% Folle Blanche
Tracing their winemaking heritage back to mid 17th century Burgundy, the Chon family came to the Brittany coast with a handful of cuttings and a commitment to quality. Today, Gilbert Chon et Fils farms organically with small yields of exceptional fruit from 30+ year old vines that give expression to outstanding wines true to this unique terroir.
Wine Pick #2: 
2016 Dio Fili Estate Siatista Xinomavro
Siatista, Macedonia, Greece
Xinomavro
The friendship between John Polyzos and Yannis Boutaris is at the core of Dio Fili (two friends) Estate. In the western Macedonia Egnatia Odos region of Greece, cultivation of the Xinomavro grape is a painstaking labor of love. When done poorly, the wine produced lives up to its name which translates as "sour black." These skilled winemakers; however, create ethereal wines reminiscent of Barolo and Burgundy.
We loved this wine from first sip and are delighted to share it with you.
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
House-Made Marinated Feta
Sheep Milk Feta marinated in basil olive oil with sundried tomato, shallots, garlic, lemon peel, and peppercorn. 
One of the many joys in life is a fresh salty cheese, bathed in oil and herbs. Our house made marinated sheep feta is a twist on the classic. Basil olive oil gives a slightly sweet and herbaceous note, while shallots, garlic, lemon rind, and sundried tomato round out the marinade, giving a little zip of acidity. This feta is delicious on salads, in frittata, and even in stuffed chicken. 
Don't toss the oil! This flavorful olive oil is perfect for cooking, salad dressing, or to even marinate more feta. Warmer weather is on the way, but why not enjoy the flavors of summer a little bit early!
