Best Thing I Drank This Week

Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2006

At the risk of championing another chardonnay, I can’t help but be enthusiastic about one of the great California benchmarks of this varietal. honey, honey, honey. yum

I paired the Newton with a blue cheese bruschetta, inspired by a version I tasted in my recent travels. Toast sourdough bread until crispy, rub with garlic, drizzle with olive oil, cover with crumbled stilton (or any other blue) and drizzle generously with honey.

Eden Ice Cider

Eden ice cider. similar to ice wine or Sauternes, but made from heirloom apples. tastes like liquid apple pie. awesome with aged cheddar cheeses. check it out at
