After nearly three weeks in Africa and the Middle East reviewing some of the work we have accomplished with Turning Wine Into Water in Ethiopia and then visiting Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon to see how we might help, it has been a bit difficult to get back into the daily flow of things here in Fairfield County.
But to help people without access to clean water and to help those living in inhuman conditions, I need to stick to my work and stick to our business values.
At Nicholas Roberts the value that directs our business is our motto, "Enriching lives through food and wine." We do that by never settling for the ordinary. When I tasted the 2015 Adrien Vacher Arbin Mondeuse I was happy to say that I was back to work. I found a wine that we could bring to the market that would "enrich" your experience with food and wine. My review and our offer are below.
If you would like a copy of my report on the Turning Wine Into Water project we just completed in Ethiopia, just ask when you place your order. You can place an order by phone, email or text.
If you want to know about the situation with the refugees in Lebanon, you’ll have to visit. It’s too emotional and complex a story to write about.
2015 Adrien Vacher Arbin Mondeuse
The vineyards of the Arbin region of the Savoie are steep and face the south east. Although they have an Alpine climate they get a great deal of sunlight during the growing season. The combination of sunlight and cool climate produces grapes that are generally ripe and highly concentrated. Combine rich, concentrated grapes, the mountainous soil of clay and limestone with the expert hand of a skilled winemaker and you have a red wine that has that wonderful barnyard aroma when you pop the cork followed by small black berry fruit on the forward palate and a finish with a hint of golden raisins. This is a wine both rich in flavor but light in style. You won’t want just one.
$120.00 for six
$216.00 for twelve
