Dear Heritage Foods Supporter,

Italian folktales tell the story of the tears of a sun goddess nourishing the soil and giving birth to the Erbaluce grape, which only grows at the base of the Alps in the region of Piedmonte. Erbaluce is translated as erba meaning grass, air and herbs and luce as light.

Today, for the first time ever, Heritage Foods introduces three wine offerings each of which consists of 100% the heirloom Erbaluce varietal. All grapes are hand harvested to ensure enough space between the grapes.

Erbaluce Di Caluso Tasting Pack (Four Bottles)

Erbaluce Di Caluso

This wine offers an intense fruity aroma with notes of peaches and watermelon, hints of dandelion and elder flowers. It is lightly aromatic with a golden apple finish. Full, warm and vigorous, it ends with traces of citrus fruits. Young and fresh, it should be consumed in its first two years to appreciate the fruity and floral sensations. Caluso is a perfect match for fish dishes.

Erbaluce Di Caluso
Crio D.O.C.

This full bodied wine has an intense fruity aroma with honey overtones, hints of watermelon and grapefruit and an apple finish. Hints of dandelion too. The unique vinification process (crio) includes placing by hand a layer of grapes followed by a layer of dry ice, layer by layer. The grapes are then allowed to absorb the wonderful complexities of the skins and the earth until the ice evaporates, after which the grapes are crushed. It should be consumed within two years and pairs well with fish.

Erbaluce Di Caluso
Brut D.O.C.

This wine was voted the number one sparkling wine of numerous competitions throughout Italy. It has an intense fruity aroma with hints of bread crust, golden apple and peaches. A lively flavor with a good sweet-acid balance; long lasting aromatic persistence with a delicate note of exotic fruits. A fresh mineral wine, it should be consumed in its first two years in order to better taste the fruity and floral sensations.

Erbaluce Di Caluso
Passito D.O.C.

This desert wine has liquor notes of cedar and honey and hints of fresh citrus, apricots and figs. Grapes are allowed to ripen fully in the warm days of autumn and are then dried before being pressed. The wine can only be bottled five years after the harvest and it is not perfectly mature until six years have passed. But it is certainly well worth waiting for, especially paired with cheese and other sweets.

By law, you must be 21 years of age or older to purchase and receive wine, and an adult's signature (also 21 years or older) is required for all deliveries of wine.

For the first time in months we feature TAMWORTH frenched ten rib pork chop racks or five rib pork chop racks.

The Tamworth is a rugged, thrifty, very active breed. It boasts lean meat and is known for its ham and ten rib racks! Despite its presence on the “threatened” list it remains a chef favorite, and we must eat it to save it!

The Tamworth originated in Ireland where they were called "The Irish Grazer". About the year 1812 it is said that Sir Robert Peel, being impressed with the characteristics of them, imported some of them and started to breed them on his estate at Tamworth, England. They have been bred quite extensively ever since they were imported into that country.
Tamworth is in Staffordshire, England.

Frenched TAMWORTH ten rib racks – 7.5lbs - $135 shipping included
