New Entwine Wines...
All of us foodies that watch every Chef and Food show on the Food Network could not help but notice the new wine being talked about on the Food Network. Wente Winery and the Food Network have partnered together to craft a new wine called ENTWINE wine. The goal was to offer everyday wine for everyday people to enjoy with everyday food. No foo-foo fancy foods, and no wines that you need a second mortgage to purchase.
I love the back label of each wine that explains in everyday terms what foods would be best to pair with the wine. And these are FUN suggestions… like the back label of ENTWINE Pinot Grigio reads:
“Crisp, refreshing, and citrusy, like a green apple drizzled with lime juice and honey”
Wow, my cheeks are salivating just reading that! It goes on to suggest…
“Enjoy with salty cheese, guacamole, Asian takeout, tropical fruit, ham, white fish, hors d’oeuvres, and evenings on the porch.”
Ok, ok, so sub “Pupu’s” for hors d’oeuvres and “sunset on the beach” for the porch and … WOW, perfect advice for our Hawaii lifestyle. And when was the last time someone suggested what wine to pair with Guacamole! Holy moly, guacamole! If you want to try a nice cheese to pair with Pinot Grigio, my suggestion would be a nice cheddar from Wensleydale Creamery, or even a blue cheese.
I also really like the ENTWINE Merlot paired with a mild creamy cheese like Jarlsberg, as it really complements the summer plum and cherry tones of the Merlot grapes.
I've got to tell you that these wines definitely over-deliver for the price. They are really delicious wines meant to be enjoyed with food, family and friends. Take it from me, we guarantee you will love these wines!

Ireland and Hawaii are over 7,000 miles away from each other, but based on the celebration of St. Patrick's Day on the islands, you would think they were much closer. It's always a special celebration for our team here at Foodland, considering our Irish roots with our founder Maurice "Sully" Sullivan.
We set out on our latest trip to California wine country with one goal in mind: find a new, outstanding, but very affordable wine that our customers will not only enjoy, but LOVE. The trip took us through the famous wine regions of Napa, Sonoma, and Central California, where we explored a variety of vineyards from the well-known and established to smaller, less recognizable, family-run operations.
The New Year is just around the corner and here are some helpful tips to ring in the New Year with nice glass of bubbly Champagne!
Pouring sparkling wine doesn't have to be complicated. First off, the best thing you can do for your bubbly is to keep it extremely cold. The colder it is, the more you are preserving the bubbles and the less messy it will be to open and pour.
Have you tried Wines that Rock? We introduced these wines at our Princeville location about three months ago, and as soon as we put them on the shelves, customers were picking up the bottles and even taking pictures with their favorite iconic rock albums featured on the labels.
We had heard the buzz about Skinnygirl® Margaritas a while back and several of our customers were even asking us about when we were going to start carrying this hot new low calorie ready to serve cocktail at Foodland.
Well, we brought in Skinnygirl® Margaritas late last year, and it surprised us in two ways: 1. How great it tasted for a so called "low calorie" beverage and 2. How hard it was to keep it on the shelves!
