Cheese from Joe


 Olympia Provisions is an American Charcuterie in Portland that has made a name for their handmade salumi by using only the finest ingredients. Their Austrian inspired pork Kasekrainer is an apple wood smoked sausage stuff with chunks of Swiss cheese and fresh ground spices. Perfect for your fall Oktoberfest plans. Try with a German Riesling, Hefeweissbier, or harvest seasonal ale.




"The Wine Guy"

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and here are a few easy suggestions. Generally speaking keep your choices crowd pleasing, interesting and lighter in style. With so many flavors happening on the table, think Pinot Noir or Grenache. Lighter style whites such as non oaked Chardonnays, medium dry Riesling, or a spicy Gewurztraminer also pair well with most of the holiday’s richer foods. Avoid wines that are high in tannins and alcohol. And we are here to help you with any wine questions or suggestions. Remember that it is an all American holiday so keep it local!
