Toasting the New Year Local-Style

We're firmly in the category of lightweights when it comes to any sort of alcohol, but once again I was caught up in the lure of local. I heard the proprietor of Moonlight Cellar in Kennewick being interviewed on NPR about his single-handed production of 12,000 bottles of sparkling wine each year ... each bottle of which he quarter-turns by hand many times throughout the process.

So when I was gathering supplies for New Year's Eve, I looked for and found a bottle of his Cafe Metropole "Blanc de Blanc" sparkling wine, made right here in the Tri-Cities! All two tablespoons or so that I had of it was quite yummy. What a great way to start a new year ... supporting local producers.
