Monthly Wine & Cheese Deals at the Co-op
Just in case you needed an excuse to indulge this winter… the Co-op has launched an extra special Wines of the Month program! You can find the featured vineyard (often with multiple types of wine) on display between the artisanal cheese case and the dairy cooler in the Concord store or in our New London store in the wine section. Print out your coupons for $5 off your cheese selection when you purchase three bottles of the Wine of the Month. Be sure to stop by for our upcoming wine and cheese tasting events, too!
At Emiliana, the organic vineyards literally teem with life. Vineyards buzz with various bugs, bees, birds and native wildlife that together provide a natural and effective defense against common vine-destroying insects. Flowers and native plants thrive throughout the organic vineyards, providing another simple and cost-effective method of pest control and helping to counteract the detrimental effects of soil degradation. The use of chemicals is shunned, in favor of natural compounds, such as copper and nitrogen. Compost is sourced from spent grape skins and stems. Emiliana’s Natura range, which celebrated its U.S. debut in 2006, marks the cutting edge of an altogether new category of wines made from organically grown grapes – a collection of superbly made, affordably priced organic wines crafted expressly for everyday enjoyment and, accessible to all.
Nestled in the picturesque Riebeek Valley, tucked up against the slopes of the majestic Kasteelberg, lies Riebeek Cellars.
This medium-sized winery on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean.
