Wednesday Wine and A Book

This week's Theme is Uproot

This week's wine suggestion comes from UPROOT Winery 
owned by Greg Scheinfeld and Jay Levy see their story here

At Uproot, we look ahead to what's possible, not back to what's been done.  We choose not to get stuck in the monotony of what's typical and expected. We believe that opening an extraordinary bottle of wine starts first by opening our minds to extraordinary possibilities: the best fruit, the best craftspeople, the best oak, the best equipment, the best process, the best technology. Greg pulled up his New York roots to get his hands dirty in Napa, re-envisioning wine making with a modern sensibility. Jay dug in with his deep experience to make the business happen.

From the smart color block labeling to their take on a progressive re-imagining of the wine making process UPROOT Wines cannot be called typical. Take the quiz and get your flavor profile.  

Rosé 2014|Santa Ynez Valley

The Summer Water
We'll be honest, when we first released a small batch of Rosé last summer, we weren't sure what the response would be. By July, we knew we hadn't made enough. Enter the 2014, dry with a refreshing mix of sour and sweet fruit. This lively Rosé keeps the summer vibes going well past the time the sun goes down. If Grenache is our gateway wine, this is our getaway wine, enjoyed best with sand between the toes and charcoal on the grill.
So light, crisp and delicate it is made in stainless steel barrels. Enjoy!

"We're renegade winemakers, here to make extraordinary wine from the ground up and share it with everyone we know. Wine is a journey come along for the ride...You have been uprooted!"-Greg and Jay

Your book suggestion for today is  Uprooted by Naomi Novik.  

Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that’s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he’s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.”

Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life.

Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood.

The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her.

But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.
