28 Cases of Butter Chardonnay Arrive Tomorrow…AGAIN!
Since July of 2012 when we frist started carrying Butter Chardonnay it instantly became one of our “Best Selling” wines at Carpe Vino. We sold nearly 50 cases until all of a sudden there was none to be had! A couple of months went by and we were told that “Butter” would once again be released in January. Since then we have sold nearly another 100 cases but inventory always seems to be sparatic! With “Fourth of July” upon us I thought I better stock up on the best damn chard for the buck…the 2011 Butter Chardonnay! Everytime this baby comes into Carpe Vino, there are no promises on how long it will last (or how fast we can re-order), so please, please, don’t miss this great buy!
Winery Tasting Notes: “Delivering on its name, this wine has an ethereal creaminess on the palate, woven with smooth vanillin scented oak. Tropical flavors of pineapple and honeydew intertwine delicately on the mid palate and linger on to the finish.”

Chef Alexander Gets Full Page in Sactown Magazine
Really cool to finally see our beloved Chef Eric Alexander get some richly deserved recognition in the Sacramento media. Being situated far from the epicenter of Sacramento’s dining scene, it’s not often that we hear from food critics here in Auburn. But Chef Alexander is truly that good, and it is rewarding for all of us to see his work featured in the June/July issue of Sactown Magazine, on newsstands now.
The magazine runs a regular feature called “Home Plate,” in which local chefs prepare a meal using seasonal foods sourced locally. Chef Alexander’s presentation was “Leomon Verbena Roasted Chicken for Two,” beautifully rendered in a color photo.
Chef Alexander described each dish and the farm where he purchased ingredients. The centerpiece was a pasture raised chicken obtained from Dinner Bell Farm in Chicago Park owned by our good friends Molly and Paul (Molly sells chickens and produce just about every Saturday morning at the Auburn Farmers’ Market). Other farms highlighted were Ueki Farm in Auburn, the Natural Trading Company in Newcastle and Jollity Farm in Garden Family.
Look for the piece on page 112. Congratulations Eric!
