Sunday's Wine

 

Are you already familiar with Moroccan wine? Kudos if so; it’s new to Tria and we’re VERY excited! Morocco was an important exporter of wine in the colonial era and has been experiencing a revival since the 1990s. Among the countries of North Africa, Morocco is considered to have the best natural potential for producing quality wines, thanks to its high mountains and cooling influence of the Atlantic; these factors offset the vineyards overheating, potentially destroying the native grapes. Today’s orange blossom-scented white wine is from Domaine Ouled Thaleb, the oldest winery in Morocco. This intriguing white is made from predominately Faranah, a native grape, blended with Clairette Blanche, a variety commonly found in southern France. The result is a fresh, bright, eminently drinkable white wine with tropical aromatics of grapefruit, mango, violet and even a hint of mint. On the palate it is fresh and bright, with solid acids and subtle grassy notes. Drink it on its own, but it’s best paired with a soft cheese and some sunny weather.

Eat cheese to do good—literally. Springbrook Farm began as an initiative for the Farms for City Kids Foundation. The farm serves as an outdoor learning space for children growing up in urban environments. Kids ranging in age from 8-12 stay on the farm for a week at a time, caring for the farm animals, planting and maintaining a vegetable garden and making maple syrup. They develop teamwork skills, and get to make and eat lots of delicious cheese while they’re at it. Today, so do you. (Well, the eating part, anyway.) Springbrook Reading is an award-winning cheese made with raw cow’s milk that was inspired by traditional cheeses of the French Alps. Modeled specifically after Raclette, a famous French melting cheese, it has a salmon-colored rind and rich, nutty flavor. Savor each delicious morsel knowing that the more you eat, the more you’re helping city kids get a breath of fresh air.

Sunday's Beer

 

DESCHUTES FRESH SQUEEZED

(Bend, OR · 6.4%)

Here’s a fresh-squeezed beverage that’s way more exciting than your morning OJ. The excellent Deschutes Brewery overlooks the wild and scenic Deschutes River in beautiful Bend, Oregon. (Bend is right near Portland, but hipsters haven’t gotten as excited about it yet.) Deschutes is actually the nation’s 6th largest craft brewery, but the beers weren’t regularly available in Philadelphia until just recently. Today’s Fresh Squeezed IPA was once just a seasonal offering, but recently made its way into the brewery’s year-round portfolio. It’s brewed with ample helpings of Citra and Mosaic hops, which give way to quite the bright, citrusy hop aroma—they don’t call ‘em Citra hops for nothing! This is a deliciously accessible IPA for both hop-heads and really just anyone who is into great, fresh beer. Pair it up with some approachable cheese and enjoy.
