Eating seasonal vegetables, ideally local if possible, is not only an important environmental strategy, but also has many health benefits. Vegetables grown in season, have higher soluble vitamins and flavonoids (those disease fighting powerhouses).
Recommended Wine Pairing
LA VIEILLE FERME GRAND PREBOIS
A deep purple color, this ripe selection leads with lush aromas of raspberry jam, blueberry and boysenberry, all of which carry through to the fruit-forward palate. Medium tannins and ample acidity provide good framing to the fruity richness, resulting in a crushed velvet texture.
