Roche de Feu 2010 Chinon (FR) ~ Reg $17.99 | INSIDER $16.99 | Mixed Case $13.59 ~ This wine is a wine lover's dream! Medium-bodied, made for food, it's a big glass of mushrooms & dirt! Gorgeous, gorgeous wine! Made by Philippe & Fabienne Angier & their friend Alain Guichet who together founded Alpha Loire (parent company of Roche de Feu) in 2009. This 100% Cab Franc has aromas of fresh crushed red fruit, spices & floral notes. Don’t let the ripe fruit deceive you, as the finish has strong tannins that linger. Try with grilled lamb or on the lighter side: goat cheese. Cheers!

02.22.2014 A Walking Tour of Sicily
As we are surrounded by the cold, dark, rainy days of Seattle in winter, I thought it would be a good time to enjoy the photos of a trip to Sicily that my parents (ardent supporters of Portalis and lovers of food & wine) took with some couple friends of theirs last spring. It was a walking tour, so every day they’d take a 4-6 hours hike (primarily through the countryside) and then they’d return to their guesthouse for a wonderful meal of local foods & wines. Follow the tour on the map & enjoy the photos of this fun trip:
Day 1: Arrival in Syracuse with a walk through Syracuse Archaeological Park and a historical tour of Ortygia...
