Being a independently owned small business, we have the opportunity to bring in new things to our assortment as we see fit, and we are able to branch out and really show our support for other small, local wineries and producers. We have an entire shelving unit in the shop dedicated to Ohio made wines – several options from up north in the Grand River Valley, some from Southern Ohio, and several selections from right here in Columbus! It’s a really gratifying experience to be able to meet with the producers face to face, and to be able to support each others businesses and to promote keeping business local!
Two of our more recent local finds that we are loving are Brother’s Drake Meads and Tessora Limone. Anyone looking for a super really unique gift, you can’t go wrong with either option.
We are very excited about the Brother’s Drake Apple Pie Mead! This is pretty limited (in fact we only have a few bottles left!) They source apples from a farm in Rushville Ohio to make this clever concoction. Sweet, spicy on the nose – the perfect fall beverage! You can serve it on its own, or with whiskey, warm. Perfect on a cold night! Someone made the comment that it smells like Christmas in a glass!! Sounds about right.
We also are LOVING Tessora Limone – a product we began carrying a few months ago. Produced from an old family recipe right here in New Albany – the creators of Tessora couldn’t be any nicer. The product is exceptional from the package to whats in the bottle. Think Lemon Creamsicle ( but with alcohol of course). We will be getting in their traditional Limoncello shortly as well as gift sets – perfect for the holidays!
Give some Local Love this Holiday Season!
