    More high quality, affordable wines from our favorite wine wizards! Each of our four locations has its very own wine pick of the month. Here are the picks for this month:

    Ventana Pinot Noir 2010, 750 mL. bottles, on sale this month for $16.99 each

    “This wine exudes black cherry, cranberry and smokiness.  It’s easy to recognize this wine has seen some oak because of the beautiful accent of the vanilla and smokiness in harmony with the bright red fruits.  This is brand new and I know you will love it.”

    – Peter Glarner, C.S.W. (Webster Groves)

    Juan Gil Monastrell 2009, 750 mL. bottles, $16.49 each

    “Spain at its richest and most interesting! Hearty wine with ripe tannins. Good with meat and cheeses.”

    – Mark Lauenstein (Central West End)

    Volver Tempranillo 2010,  750 mL. bottles, $15.99 each

    “One of the best Tempranillos I’ve found under $20. Alluring bouquet of ripe fruits, herbs and spices. Substantial flavors of cherry, raspberry and vanilla. Very versatile, pairing well with grilled meats and veggies. My pick for a Thanksgiving Wine.”
    – Chris Young (Clayton)

    Lincourt Pinot Noir 2009, 750 mL. bottles, $17.99 each*

    “I find this wine special for 2 reasons: it has a spicy cinnamon finish that is perfect with your Thanksgiving feast, and the owner named this wine after his daughters Lindsay and Court. A family man, the owner names all of his vineyards after special women. Perfect reasons to try this wine in November.”
    – Ken Etzkorn (Town & Country)

    *As featured in Feast® Magazine! Rated 92 Points by James Suckling.

  • I bought green coffee beans for a year when we roasted our coffee on site and I became much more familiar with the grades, varieties and growing regions involved with coffee. Coffee grows best in subtropical regions and high altitudes with well defined rain seasons. As with any agricultural product, soil types, regions and altitude all contribute to the taste and quality of the coffee.

    I bought green coffee beans for a year when we roasted our coffee on site and I became much more familiar with the grades, varieties and growing regions involved with coffee. Coffee grows best in subtropical regions and high altitudes with well defined rain seasons. As with any agricultural product, soil types, regions and altitude all contribute to the taste and quality of the coffee. The skilled timing of the roaster determine how long the coffee is roasted and what beans are blended for the final taste profile. Roasting a shorter time lets more of the natural beans’ flavor profile emerge and coffees that are roasted a longer time tend to have a slight ash flavor that is to me, a flavor which is surprisingly popular. The food comparison would be a chocolate chip cookie – bake it a little less and it tastes more raw, like the ingredients, bake it longer and the same cookie takes on a different taste – crispy and caramelized, still good, but very different. The roaster tries to get the roast level consistent from batch to batch so the best flavors of the coffee are brought out. We now source our roasted coffee from Northwest coffee, here in St. Louis, and their roasting skill and coffee quality is phenomenal.
