WINES OF THE WEEK
ALL THINGS HYGGE!
Pronounced “hyoo-guh,” this Danish word is said to have no direct translation in English, though “cozy” comes close. January is a wonderful time to engage in "Hygge"! Whether it is enjoying a glass of wine after a day at the slopes, a nice pasta dinner, or enjoying warm melty cheeses with friends and family, you are sure to feel the winter warmth.
