Wine Pick of the Month: Camparrón
The 2010 Camparrón Crianza is a full flavored wine that contains hints of Mediterranean herbs, spicy oak, and wild berries.
With a medium-bodied palate, time has polished the wine's tannins, which provides a full flavored wine that drinks well.
This wine is paired perfectly with hearty fall dishes, including roasts, lamb chops, rich creamy pastas and any Mediterranean-based cuisine. In addition, the wine comes at great value.
Pick up the 2010 Camparrón Crianza at Orcas Island Market during the month of October.
Local-Goods: Both Local and Good
It was in 1998 when Rob Kirby came to Orcas Island that he started growing his own local brand, Local-Goods. When friends and family were asking him for his delicious Riesling-Basil salad dressing, the organic and local brand grew and expanded from there.
Local-Goods offers a variety of delicious products, including fresh pasta, toasted granola, rich coffee, hot sauces and more. Try all of Local-Goods products at Orcas Island Market.
As the cooler temperatures return to the island, indoor activities take center stage with the return of the 4th Annual Orcas Island Film Festival. The festival is a unique and fun opportunity for film lovers and filmmakers to connect and offers a sneak peek to see films before its release date.
