Wine of the Month

A favorite of both Sommeliers and casual wine drinkers, Butternut Chardonnay is a unique white wine with a creamy, luxe texture. Honey hues appeal to the eye, while scents of hazelnut, caramel and spiced apple please the nose. If you love white wines with richness and depth, give Butternut a try. It's like your mother's chardonnay, ONLY BETTER. Pairs well with rich, spicy dishes like,
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Maple Bacon.
Pairing of the Month:


Savory Sweet

80 Acres
Made in California

Bohemian Rose captures the essence of Ranch gardens in full bloom. The sweet nostalgia of rose absolute is met with the pure beauty of neroli and the herbaceous notes of geranium and ylang ylang essential oils. Pink pepper CO2 extract provides an unexpected, peppery back note that adds balance and complexity to this sophisticated scent blend, sourced exclusively from natural botanicals.
  Emollient and healing, this ultra-rich hydrating lotion is a blend of organic olive, sunflower, jojoba and grapeseed oils infused with aloe vera and a soothing blend of botanical extracts. 80 Acres Hand + Body Lotion is rich in antioxidants and deeply hydrating.
Fleur de Sel

Fleur de Sel is from the GuĂ©rande region of France. Known as "the caviar of salts" and is accepted by many chefs as the best of all sea salts. Fleur de Sel is the first harvest of the season.  True "Fleur de Sel" can only originate from France. It has a delicate flavor, a moist texture, and a rich, sweet flavor that melts as it touches the tongue. Not only is this among the best tasting salts, it also has the highest mineral content and is naturally low in sodium making it delicious and healthy.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Maple Bacon
Serves: 4
  • 1 large butternut squash, cut into 3/4
  • 1 large onion, cut into halfmoons
  • 1/4 C Rosemary Fused Olive Oil
  • fresh ground pepper
  • Hot Curry or French Fleur de Sel Sea Salt
  • 1/4 C Vermont Maple Dark Balsamic
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 3-4 C unsalted chicken stock
  •  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl toss the squash and onions with the Rosemary Olive Oil, pepper and Hot Curry Sea Salt. Spread out in an even layer on a half sheet pan and roast for 55 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes, until the squash is tender but still holds its shape.
  •  After the squash is in the oven brush the bacon both sides with the Vermont Maple Balsamic, lay it on a second half sheet pan covered with parchment. Bake for 16 minutes, turning once halfway through. When finished removed to a plate to cool slightly.
  •  Meanwhile gently warm the chicken stock in a pot on the stove, bring to a simmer but do not boil.
  •  When the squash is tender put half of it in a blender, add enough stock to cover and blend in batches until desired consistency. Stir in more warmed stock if you prefer a thinner consistency. Remove to a warmed pot or tureen and taste. Season with more salt or pepper if needed.
  •  Snip the maple balsamic bacon with scissors and garnish each serving with the pieces.

Curry has a unique flavor due to the combination of both savory and sweet spices.

The level of heat is determined by the type and amount of pepper used.
