What's In My Glass

A LEGEND of a wine to kick off May! 

This week Simon is drinking the LVE Rose 2020 from LVE wine collection produced in partnership with award-winning musician John Legend. Pale pink in the glass, the nose is vibrant and aromatic with delicate notes of peach blossom, apricot and raspberry. The palate is light and crisp with notes of floral notes, nectarine and ripe strawberry. 

Pick up a bottle of this spring essential from either retail store and online. 

Our Favorite Right Now

Austin Hope 'Quest' Red Blend

Quest is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that displays a beautiful creamy vanilla nose with hints of sweet mint and coco. These aromas continue through the palette and evolve into rich flavors of black berry, dark chocolate, fresh tobacco and slight herbaceous accent. As the flavor evolves bright acidity coats the palette and soft supple tannins create rich integrated finish.

Tips For Making an Epic Cheese Board!

The truth is everyone likes their cheese a little different. Some like it savory, some like it sweet, and some like a combination of both.

Cheese. We suggest choosing 4 different types of cheese: aged, firm, soft and blue. Meat. Layer in two or three types of charcuterie — we suggest hard salami, prosciutto, and dry-cured chorizo. Fresh Fruit, Olives and Nuts. For the fall season we suggest figs and walnuts.  Adds a pop of color! Condiments are key. For example, honey. It pairs well with so many different cheeses—especially goat cheese! And finally, bread sticks and crackers. Grab a few different shapes, flavors and sizes to give the board some personality.

Place the cheeses down first and then throw everything else around them. Things can hang off the board, they can be tucked into each other, add some of the fresh fruit when you need a colorful moment, and Voila!
