What's inside? June was "Inspired Italian" - we weren't going for an Italian theme, but as we started putting stuff together it quickly went that direction. 2 bottles 2019 Sauvignon blanc, 2 bottles 2016 Professor (or best food wines), two packages of pasta, IASA spicy anchovies, Patagonia Provisions lemon caper mackerel, Castelvetrano Olives, Capers, and Amedei Chauo Chocolate (best chocolate in the world from Tuscany). AND - an information packet about why the products, why we chose them and recipes!
It's Red, White, and Blue! (kinda) We wanted a fun way to feature our new releases of wine, then realized they *kinda* fit the 4th theme, so we're just rolling with it. Enjoy brand new vintage of 2019 Rosé, 2019 Sauvignon blanc, and 2016 El Prat (cab/malbec blend). We thought we'd pair it with three of our favorite tins. The white bean and tuna belly from Olasagasti, Patagonia Provisions Garlic Mackerel (CUSTOMER FAVORITE!) and delicious anchovies in olive oil (prepared like sardines, only richer and smokey by nature) by Les Mouettes d' Arvor (a nod to the French on this Independence Day). Enjoy these at home or take camping!
Pack available through July 4th, or while supplies last. Please note if you're experiencing temperatures of 90+, we will be in contact about holding your order for cooler shipping weather.
El Prat is our OG wine, yo! It’s the first wine we gave
a name to, and was made by blending the only
other two wines we were producing at the time -
Malbec and Cabernet. It was a solid gold hit, and
reminds of the earlier days of the Washington wine
industry when Cab-Merlot blends were so popular
(rightfully so). Rich, dark, easy drinking and great
food wine, it’s still the original for us. El Prat means
prairie in Spanish, and that’s a great way to
describe the landscape of Eastern WA. Label

If you're thinking typical anchovies: STOP! These are delicious anchovies in rich extra virgin olive oil, prepared in the same way sardines are. These are firmer, richer and have an inherent smokey quality to them vs sardines. Good for you and a great value - each tin serves two. Great way to stock up your pantry, make some no-cook meals (add to salads, sandwiches, just crackers). These beauties are great with red and white wine alike!
Delicious spicy anchovies - these are great out of the jar and on bread or smashed to and added to salads or a sandwich - but they can also be treated like more traditional anchovies - chopped up and added to pasta sauces or soups. These are spicy, but not painful spicy.
ingredients: whole anchovies, olive oil, hot pepper, tomatoes, salt
Yep, the same Patagonia - they've decided to dip their toes in the conservas market. It makes sense - camping with tinned seafood is a no-brainer. Shelf stable, super healthy, and delicious - you can make a meal with the pop of a tin and a sleeve of saltines. However, we're not going lie - we were a tad skeptical. There are plenty of delicious, well established, time-honored conservas producers out there, so why bother? But then we tried it - and yes - please bother.
Acting as a broker, Patagonia is using their leverage as a well known name to help support hook and line fishing and fish preserving off the Spanish coast. Working, with small fisherman and canning facilities, they're not only helping keep these folks in business, but producing some amazing tins. This roasted garlic mackerel is yummy right out of the tin. Grab some crackers or bread and you're set. But you can also use it in lieu of canned tuna for your favorite pantry dishes - mackerel salad for sandwiches, on greens, mackerel melt, pasta dishes, over rice, etc. These tins look small, but with the olive oil and packed full they serve two for a full meal, or 4 for a snack.
From Basque Country is a delicious brand, Olasagasti, that's been producing Basque conservas with an Italian twist for decades. This is a great example of that - tender white beans, potatoes and tunny belly fillets. Easy way to elevate your camping experience, but also a really great tin to have on hand for the fastest of dinners. Delicious right out of the tin - however if you're not a fan of cold beans, you can heat the whole tin in a pot of warm water, closed, and then carefully open, or you can remove top and cover with foil and heat up in a toaster oven, or of course, you can empty into a microwave safe bowl and heat up in your microwave. Add salad and you have a dinner!
These plump, tender, olives can turn olive haters into olive lovers. And if you're already an olive lover, you'll be infatuated with these buttery, rich, sweet olives that are much more mild than some other varieties, but not any less tasty. Hard to find these beauties cost more, but once you pop open a jar, you'll understand why.
Delicious nonpareil capers certified USDA organic. Enjoy these in salads, pasta dishes, on roasted chicken or fish - we love to toss some in more common recipes like potato salad, mashed potatoes, roasted veg - for an added briny burst of flavor and tang.
