Time for Bubbly

jp-chenetAre you ready to ring in the New Year? We are! While our wine departments are stocked with many great Champagnes and sparkling wines perfect for toasting, we have to admit that we do have a favorite: J.P. Chenet Blanc De Blancs Brut.

Zero Waste: The Day After

GreenMission_200Thanks for all of the great feedback on our Zero Waste holiday series of blog posts. If everyone was taking the steps our readers are, we'd make a huge dent in that stat about North Americans producing 25% more waste during this time of year!

Merry Christmas!


Hope you and your loved ones are enjoying a joyous and healthy Christmas Day!

Tips for Traveling


Healthy Tip: Travel With Good Food

airplane2 With Christmas and New Year's just around the corner, many of us will be packing our bags and heading off to celebrate. Unfortunately, most airports, train stations and roadside stops offer the standard American junk-food fare. The good news is you can bring your own food!

Chestnuts Roasting...


...on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose. I've sung that song for (many) years but grew up with little understanding of chestnuts. Living in Texas and California, I spent more time decorating cactus at Christmas time than ice skating, playing in the snow or eating roasted nuts.

Time for Port Wine

Holiday time is the perfect time to enjoy a delicious port wine! Port wine is a "sipper" kind of wine - it slowly warms your spirit and soul while you mingle and enjoy time with family and friends.
