Ted’s has stocked up on two reasonably priced selections from Burgundy that work perfectly for Thanksgiving dinner, but are also easy-drinking wines that can be enjoyed during impromptu holiday gatherings all month long:
Château des Bois Mâcon Milly-Lamartin 2013 – $18
Lemon custard backed by refreshing minerality ensure that this is indeed Chardonnay from its homeland of Burgundy. Even “non-Chardonnay” lovers seem to embrace the Mâcon. It simply impresses without overwhelming and proves an easy pairing with local seafood, roasted chicken — even turkey!
Château des Bois Bourgogne Rouge 2013 – $19
Tart red fruit like cranberries and pomegranate entice us immediately, but it’s the finish of dried earth and crushed rocks that seals the deal. This deserves a spot at the Thanksgiving table! Who can resist Pinot Noir from its birthplace? Just be sure to stash away a bottle or two for yourself!
Ted’s offers a 10% discount for wine purchases of six bottles, and a 15% discount on a case (mixed or single selection).
Chef Jamey Fairchild has fine-tuned the selection of cold and hot bites, platters, salads and sides highlighted on the catering menu at Ted’s Butcherblock. Items like roasted cherry tomatoes stuffed with smoked brisket and gouda mousse
, maple cured pork belly with pickled cherries
, and warm potato salad with country ham, grilled onions and mustard
can be paired with the shop’s offering of signature charcuterie platters
and prepared meats and seafoods for receptions, private dinners and other special events during the holidays and beyond. Click here to view the new catering menu
