This sounds like something that Mrs. EMark would love. It's too bad that we live three timezones away. Oh well. Let us know when you branch out to the left coast, Wendy.

When I saw the words' Artisan Wine' in your title I thought your post was going to discus the Cru Artisan wines from the Medoc peninsular

I only use wines and cheeses from small vineyards and farms. Many run just by one or two people. I try to search out the best values under $30. Each are special pairings with the addition of breads, dried fruit and jams.
Just on East Coast for now!
