“Hygge” – a trend that appeals to you?

The Danes are considered to be the happiest people in the world! This may have something to do with “Hygge” – this Danish way of life which, in its essence, is bound up with a feeling of well-being. For example, “Hygge”, means a warm, cosy atmosphere with candles, a lovely relaxing home interior or a nice bike ride – but it also means enjoying life’s small pleasures such as a good glass of wine with family or friends.

Our Wine of the Month – Domaine Fabrègues 2014

At the heart of the designated region of Languedoc, the Domaine de Fabrègues covers 40 hectares of vines planted on the slopes of the Terrasses de Pézenas, nestling into the mountains of the Cévennes and the Montagne noire.

Carine Pichot, driven by the desire to create wines that resemble the region – wines to evoke sensations, between classic and surprise – took on the property with a view to lending its wines a personal signature. Thus each terroir is devoted to a single variety, in order to offer the best to each of the estate’s wines. Each grape variety is harvested and made into wine separately: one parcel for one vat!

Why walnut bread and what should you eat with it?

Food lovers will say you should eat artisanal deli meats and good cheese with walnut bread. And they’re right. However, when it comes to your evening supper, you might want something a bit special or different to go with this flavoursome walnut bread… Perfectly ripe, aromatic pears on top of thin slices of Roquefort are perfect, as are seasonal figs. If you don’t like Roquefort, try another cheese such as Comté, cream cheese with herbs or goat’s cheese. And don’t forget the grapes…

Take advantage of the great special offer on mussels this week. Don’t delay, because first come, first served.
