We continue our consideration of American wines this month with two wineries that have become reliable customer favorites year after year.

Summer in Provence

Houchart Vineyard

We’ve still got a few of our Yvon Mau Bordeaux Features left, but before we get into July, when we’ll be Featuring American wines all month, I wanted to introduce a few wines from Domaine Houchart in Provence.

Two New Sisters; Two New Rocks


The description of this week’s Featured wines is simple and straightforward - 2 whites, 2 each from Four Sisters and Castle Rock. By now, most of you will be familiar with both the Four Sisters and Castle Rock lines of wine. Four Sisters is the project of winemaker Trevor Mast in the Grampian Mountains region of Central Victoria, Australia; and Castle Rock is the “virtual” winery that bottles the excess production of premium wineries in California and the Pacific Northwest, keeping us from having to pay the price for label cachet.

It’s Summertime, Summertime, Sum-sum-summer...Time to Drink some Wine


Memorial Day Weekend traditionally marks the beginning of summer.  At Wine & Words, we mark it as the beginning of summertime wine drinking.  Thus, we are Featuring four fine wines for those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.

Friday April 29 - 2:00-4:00 RESERVATIONS ONLY

James Lupton, author of Pilgrimage of Grace will read from and sign copies of the second volume of his book, while Back Bay Cafe serves a traditional English tea

We are celebrating the publication of Perilous Power, the second and final volume of Pilgrimage of Grace.  This book takes Roger Lupton into high royal circles and climaxes in the rebellion sweeping across England in 1536 when he is forced to make hard choices. Only after many years and false leads is the murder mystery finally solved.

Some Springtime Holiday Treats

California Spring vineyards

Springtime is for new beginnings and celebrations.  We have religious celebrations like Easter and Passover, family get-togethers for weddings and Mother's Day, and new taste treats with spring veggies and fresh herbs.  There's always room for great wines.
