Ninety Acres' Choice of the Month:
"Wine of the Month"
Producer: Le P'Tit Paysan
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Appellation: Monterey County
Le P'tit Paysan Jack's Hill Vineyard Chardonnay from Monterey County California. Ian Brand is the young creative mind behind this beautiful 'New World" Chardonnay. He is from Utah and an avid snowboarder who loved the idea of surfing. He moved to Northern California to pursue just that, knowing the power of their waves. While there he discovered a passion for big wine. Ian began working as a cellar hand for Bonny Doon, one of the most famous wineries in the state. He worked his way up to assistant wine maker and departed around 2007 to start his own label, Le P'Tit paysan, along with another sister label named La Marea. Ian has had nothing but success in his wine venture and was named Wine Enthusiast's "40 under 40 Tastemakers" in 2013
Tasting this wine you can expect a Medium to Full bodied wine with crisp acidity balanced with tree fruits like apples and pears and solid minerality.
chicken, pork, pizza, and lighter pastas
Wine Director: Brooke Sabel
"Beer of the Month"
Beer: Hibernation Ale
Brewer: Great Divide Brewing Company
Location: Denver, Colorado
Style: Old Ale
Great Divide Brewing Companies Winter offering is a perfect mix of deep malt flavor reminiscent of chocolate, brown sugar & caramelized fruit with an earthy hop bitterness. At 8% alcohol this beer will have no trouble keeping your warm on a cold evening.
I recommend this with Ninety Acres 14oz. Bone in Strip Steak, 20oz. Ribeye, Cheese plate or Buttery Apple Cake with apple cider caramel!
