Wine of the Week
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
Walla Walla Washington
$14.99 or $13.49 for Wine Club Members or by the case.
Revel in this, wine people! Not often will you come by such an enjoyable Washington Cabernet priced so beautifully from a Walla Walla producer--never ever maybe.
Jared Burns grew up in a wine passionate family. His father started the company "Supreme Corq", the world’s first synthetic wine cork manufacturer, and wine was always on the table, but it wasn't until after he graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla that a desire for the wine industry started to ferment in him. His main objective was to produce wines that his friends could afford and enjoy. Hence this offering. What takes this bottle up a few notches are the amazing sources for the fruit, a combination from some of WA's top sites: Seven Hills (Walla Walla), Heart of the Hill (Red Mountain), and Weinbau Vineyard, sister-site to Sagemoor (Wahluke Slope). This Cab is signature WA style with black cherry and black berry dominating the layers of savory dried herbs and hints of vanilla followed by a polished finish.
This a Cab meant to drunk now for any and all types of occasions.

One for our local kids and the future
One local organization that is a very dear to our hearts is Common Threads Farm.
Laura Plaut has brought together an amazing group of people dedicated to connecting kids to healthy food in the garden, the kitchen, and at the table. Thanks to CTF our community kids are growing up with the knowledge needed to make food choices that are good for their bodies, their communities, and the environment.
Founded in 2006 and based in Bellingham, Washington, Common Threads is a grassroots, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes a “seed to table” approach to food production, good nutrition, and environmental stewardship. Most of our programs take place on public school grounds, during the school day in collaboration with classroom teachers and food service staff. Additionally, Common Threads runs after-school and summertime gardening and cooking programs.
To help assist with this great cause Goat Mountain Pizza is donating 20% of a purchase towards the cause. Here you can truly help a great local cause. Just mention Common Threads and your purchase will benefit Common Threads’ school gardening programs!

Unable to make it in today? You can always donate directly through the Common Threads site.
(But definitely make it back in for the pizza another day. It's delicious!)

WINE FILM at the
Back To Burgundy
Showings start this Friday
So many of you walk over to the shop before or after seeing a film at PFC. We feel a real connection to this amazingly rare treasure of a movie house. Bellingham is so lucky to have inhabitants willing to work so hard to make this place a reality for all of us to enjoy. Long live independent cinema!
Although we have yet to see this film to give a review, we are very impressed by the trailer. Family dynamics are always intense and complicated. There is such a dependence on each person involved in a family business and wine is no different.
We await your reviews so please come in and tell us.

Pineau des Charentes
"Pineau des Charentes:
The Superstar Cocktail Ingredient You Haven't Heard of"
CAREY JONES and JOHN D. MCCARTHY
Like any rational drinker out there, we love a good Cognac. And in the summer, we’re all about Cognac’s distant cousin—Pineau des Charentes. (We just need a shorter, easier-to-pronounce name for it.)
Cognac is distilled from grapes, and Pineau des Charentes is a blend of that region’s grape juice, and the Cognac brandy itself. The result, at around 17 percent ABV, is just a little boozier than wine. It’s sweet, but in a natural, juicy way, with a strong vanilla-fruit character. Our favorite is made by Pierre Ferrand, one of the area’s best Cognac producers. Their Pineau des Charentes is vibrant and fruity, and, as it spends twelve months in oak, has a beautiful barrel-aged character. Try it on its own, served ice-cold from the fridge; try it with ice and soda; or try it in these three summer-friendly cocktails.
