Holidays toast of Asti

This morning a customer asked me if we carry any Asti Spumante….
In years past Martini and Rossi Asti Spumante was a popular version of this sweet wine from Italy.
Most of those sales have moved to “Moscato D’ Asti” in the past few years.

Following the international wine naming process.. it is a Moscato ( grape varietal) produced in the Asti region of Italy.

How to Plan a Successful Thanksgiving Dinner

I love the holiday season and things kick into high gear on Thanksgiving. Even though it is a fun time, it can be a stressful one when it comes to getting the dinner together.

Here are a few tips that can help to make this a time you can enjoy your company instead of stress in the kitchen.

Planning is key. Don't try to make everything on Thanksgiving day. If you layer your tasks, you can spread most of the work over the course of the week.
