We’ve officially gone organic. Well, at least for a month. That’s our test period to see if, 1) we feel better, 2) we can still afford to pay rent, and 3) we find more than two restaurants in Calgary where we can eat.
This weekend I found an amazing Chilean wine brand that not only caters to our recent hippie status (they make a delicious line from organic grapes), but they’re easy on the wallet (a sweet $8.99 at the Costco liquor store) and delicious on the palette (most important).
Founded in 1993, Cono Sur is a relatively newer winery, but speaking from my limited knowledge, they know their stuff. They boast a signature premium pinot noir, but offer everything from reserves to sparkling to organic wines, with a strong company focus on ethical production and environmental consideration.
On Saturday we tried and loved Cono Sur’s organic Cab Sauv that paired nicely with elk burgers, grilled pineapple, Greek salad and good friends. Yum.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
