Who’s Bringing the Bubbly?

Mollie’s Wine of the Week:
Montechiara Prosecco

Montechiara Prosecco

Can you believe it? We’ve made it through another holiday season and now it’s nearly time to bid adieu to 2017. Whether you’re hosting a grand soiree or staying at home to watch the ball drop from afar, our Wine of the Week is a perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve celebration.

In my mind, there’s nothing more fitting for a New Year’s Eve celebration than a chilled flute of refreshing and delicious bubbly.

Let us introduce you to one of our favorite sparkling options and our Wine of the Week: The Montechaira Prosecco.

The Montechaira Prosecco is a well-balanced sparkling wine from Veneto, Italy. It has citrus flavors and floral notes. This prosecco is Extra Dry, which gives it a more firm palate presence, good acidity, and bright freshness that makes it seem more like a Brut while lengthening the finish. It also pairs very well with appetizers, fish and white meats.

Did we mention that this prosecco is also an incredible value? At $11.99 per 750ml bottle, you can be sure to keep your guests feeling bubbly well into 2018!

From all of us at Mollie Stone’s Markets, we wish you a safe, healthy, and very happy New Year!

Raw Milk Cheeses, What About Them?


One of the hottest food trends right now is eating raw. So what about raw milk cheeses?

This may be to your surprise, but it’s likely you are already eating raw milk cheeses. For hundreds of years, traditional European cheese recipes have used only raw milk. Often you will find that raw milk cheeses are sharper and more defined in taste. That’s because when milk is heated or pasteurized, much of the good bacteria (which create the rich flavors in cheese) are killed. In fact, certain cheeses are only legally certified if made with raw milk, such as Gruyere and Parmigiano-Reggiano. France’s AOC (appellation d’origine contrôlée) and Italy’s DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) define the region, production and maturation process for many European cheeses. Though less common, you can also find raw milk cheeses produced in the United States. Continue reading
