Sada Vermentino 2017
Made with the native grape Vermentino, this offers subdued aromas of tropical fruit, beeswax and a whiff of citrus. The simple, straightforward palate offers pineapple, nectarine and a hint of bitter almond alongside bright acidity.
Res Fortes White Wine Cotes du Roussillon
This Cotes du Roussillon white from the Catalan part of France near the Spanish border is a fresh, zippy and well balanced blend of mainly Macabeu with Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. While undeniably easy to drink there's plenty going on here with herby fennel flavours among the gentle spiciness. This is only the second vintage from Moritz Bak a talented English trained winemaker who'll be worth looking out for in future.
About Orsini's Sausages:
Of all the things that could be obsessed about, sausages may not be the most expected. But one taste of Orsini’s sausage and you’ll understand why three generations of our family have devoted themselves to this marvelous food.
It all began in 1933 when Matt Orsini would make a small batch of sausage in his kitchen. the recipe brought back from Italy by his uncle. Matt would carefully grind fresh pork by hand, mix it with chopped herbs he grew in his garden, and give his creations to friends and family. We haven’t changed a thing since 1933, We use the freshest pork and spices along with the original recipe brought from Italy.
In all of our sausage varieties, the spices we add serve to bring out the subtle flavor of the meat, not overwhelm it. NO fillers, NO preservatives or MSG are ever added to our sausage.
