One June 30th, we're hoping to be lucky enough to host Deirdre Heekin, author of An Unlikely Vineyard: The Education of a Farmer and Her Quest for Terroir and grower of otherworldly (OK, that other world = Vermont) wine for another in-shop tasting and book signing. If you missed the first one, celebrating her book launch, you won't want to miss this one, so stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, we have Deirde's lovely wines to sell. Liquid proof that native grapes and New England weather are not incompatible with organic farming and beautiful wines. In stock: Damejeanne 2013, Harlots & Ruffians 2013, and Loups-Garoux 2013. All 750ml bottles. All $37.99. To purchase, go to our WINES page and search on "garagista"
We also have copies of Deirdre's book, noted by the New York Times as one of last year’s top wine books, which spins a wonderfully practical account of realizing her vision of a living farm with a table at its center. Balancing rural romance with the real concerns of sinking hands into dirt, it’s filled with tips and inspiration for the existing gardener. And it will have armchair green thumbs ready to run off and buy a tractor. (Add it to your cart just below!) Price: $35
