2010 Pinot Noir
Their newest release in redesigned packaging! This 2010 Pinot Noir offers wonderful aromas of strawberry, cherry and clove give way to sweet red cherries on the palate.

This 2010 Girasole Pinot Noir exhibits hues of red roses and ruby jewel tones. Wonderful aromas of strawberry, cherry and clove give way to sweet red cherries on the palate. A touch of new French oak lends texture and helps frame the wonderful sweet red fruit that radiates from this wine, and that classic Mendocino mineral backbone carries it to a long and lingering finish. This wine will pair wonderfully with braised duck breast with a cranberry reduction, or plank grilled salmon with garlic mash potatoes. Of course, pulling a cork and having a glass or two on the porch would work too!  SRP: $16.

Good, Healthy and Delicious Offerings From ORGANICVILLE

ORGANICVILLE ANNOUNCES ORGANIC KETCHUP AND BARBEQUE SAUCES

 

Organicville Brings a Healthy Alternative To The Condiment Aisle

Organicville Foods Inc. of Emeryville, California has introduced its newest line of USDA certified organic, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free products with no sugar added. With the agave-sweetened ketchup and two barbeque sauces to suit every taste,

Organicville’s line of healthy, socially-conscious foods is offering every customer and every family a tasty alternative for adorning every-day meals.

We LOVED the KETCHUP. Forget that “name brand” that we American’s adored (I’m as guilty as the next . . . it was very good). You have never tasted (even in a restaurant) a Ketchup so intense, complex and downright delicious. (OK. It’s good for you as well.)

Organicville’s exciting new Organic Ketchup is made with the finest vine-ripened tomatoes and organic seasonings, without any sugar added! Most brands sweeten ketchup with high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners; these synthetically processed substances dangerously impact the glycemic levels in many food favorites. Sweetened with agave nectar, Organicville’s richly flavored ketchup has the fresh, hearty taste and texture kids expect, with 25% less sodium for health-conscious parents. This ketchup will add a zesty flare to burgers, hot dogs, french fries, and more.
