NEW! Jambon de Bayonne, 4 oz. package, pre-sliced: Bayonne ham or Jambon de Bayonne is a cured ham named from the ancient port city of Bayonne in the far southwest of France. Complex, sweet and delicately flavored it is less salty than Italian prosciutto. This air-cured ham is cured for 7 months, and has PGI status which requires preserving with “mountain salt” sourced from the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains. This inland salt, 28 miles from the coast, is sourced from a well that is 10 times saltier than the sea, as it is in contact with layers of salt deposited millions of years ago when it was covered by the sea. It contains 26 trace minerals and properties that allow it to penetrate meat more efficiently. The salt-laden water is piped to a salt works where it is dried; four-fifths of the production is used in the production of Bayonne ham. Serve this delicious Jambon on a charcuterie board, make a sandwich with it, or use in omelettes.

HIGHLY RATED WINES ON SALE, AVAILABILITY LIMITED:
Leirana Albarino 2017, Rias Baixas (Normally $33.00, now $27.99) 19 bottles available This white wine from Galicia in northwestern Spain perfectly compliments any type of shellfish, but especially Dungeness crab. It offers up a powerful, rich, and saline experience. “The 2017 Leirana is pure Albariño, the only wine produced in stainless steel (with maybe 20% in oak foudre), with indigenous yeasts. Even if 2017 was warmer than 2016, the wine has lower alcohol. This 2017 feels very integrated—everything is in place. There are clean varietal aromas, serious, nothing tropical about it, and it has a strict, serious palate with some volume, perhaps helped by the foudre. I wish more Albariño was like this.” 93 points Wine Advocate
Viña Pedrosa Crianza 2014, Ribera del Duero (Normally $35.00, now $21.99) If you like elegant Tempranillo wines from Ribera del Duero, get some of this before it sells out! 13 bottles available at this great price. “This wine is pure Tempranillo cropped from a vintage that the Pérez Pascuas family considers perfectly ripe but with freshness, complexity and elegance. Aged in oak barrels for 18 months, made from slightly older vines and the élevage mixes newer and older barrels. This has an elegant texture with very fine tannins and very good freshness. This is as classical as it gets in Ribera del Duero, and very representative of the house style, with very clean oak and balance to develop for a very long time. A benchmark for Crianza wines from Ribera del Duero.” 92 points Wine Advocate
Bastion de la Luna 2016, Rias Baixas (Normally $32.00, now $26.99) This is a red wine from Rias Baixas and is a blend of 80% Caino, 15% Espadeiro, 5% Loureiro. These red varietals have been disappearing from Galicia in favor of the more popular Albariño grape. Rodrigo Mendez, winemaker and viticulturist has been following his grandfather’s lifelong dream, to graft and replant these grape varieties to prevent extinction and to continue producing the traditional red wines of the area. Bastion de la Luna is made from vines planted since 1963, grown in sandy and granite soil at 5 meters (16 ft) elevation. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged 12 months in 8-year-old French oak barrels. A cool-climate, low alcohol red (12% ABV) heavily influenced by the vineyard’s proximity to the Atlantic it offers up spicy black pepper notes with a brambly red fruit character and supple tannins. Medium-bodied and fresh, it has a lengthy finish with saline hints. 92 points Wine Advocate
