Cheese from Joe


 Olympia Provisions is an American Charcuterie in Portland that has made a name for their handmade salumi by using only the finest ingredients. Their Austrian inspired pork Kasekrainer is an apple wood smoked sausage stuff with chunks of Swiss cheese and fresh ground spices. Perfect for your fall Oktoberfest plans. Try with a German Riesling, Hefeweissbier, or harvest seasonal ale.




"The Wine Guy"

Wine blends continue to grow in popularity and can be from almost every region around the globe. Syrah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon seem to be popular players in a number of them. We just expanded our blend section and include a terrific Malbec blend from Argentina, Toscana Rossos from Italy, and big chewy California reds from Lake County in the north to Paso Robles on the coast. Perfect for your heartier fall harvest recipes.
