Cool Eats, Cool Treats

champagnecreek.gifA few months back my favorite winery from Southern Oregon closed. Champagne Creek Cellars a little rustic vineyard with so much charm and award winning wines decided to close there doors.  Unfortunately, I was up here in Scio and heard the news after they had closed their doors.  It was a privilege getting to taste their award winning wines, meeting the staff and owners that gave their customers quality wines and customer service.  So where am I going with this?

 Last week, while out and about and looking for treasures to cook my latest meals, I happened to stop at a Canned Food Outlet.  I was looking for Fontina, Gruyere, and perhaps a bottle or two of wine.  While checking through their collection of wines, I saw that they had a wine from Champagne Creek.  It was a 2003 Merlot.  I paid 22.00 for that bottle at the vineyard, but on that day it was a mere 3.99.  WOW  I went back today and picked up the last of what they had. I also got a great bottle from Giradet in Southern Oregon too, a Rouge, that normally goes for 20.00 for 3.99.  Check them out sometime.  For 40 bucks I got some great cheeses and some awesome bottles of wine for my wine rack.



About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
