This fair trade Malbec found at Bloomingfoods is a perfect pairing with our Phoenician glass goblets or tumblers from the West Bank. The Phoenician glass is hand-blown using glass from recycled bottles.
The Malbec is medium bodied with soft red fruit flavors, made with grapes from family farms in Argentina. (Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon also available).

Come out Saturday from 11-2 to support Kai, Theo, and Jack, fifth graders from University school who are holding a bake sale. The money from their bake sale will go toward purchasing duffle bags, book packs and luggage for youth at the Youth Services Bureau Youth Shelter. Often the kids the shelter serves only have trash bags to transport their belongings, and backpacks and luggage are always in need. Your purchase of treats and lemonade will be appreciated!
