Artisan Preserves is dedicated to bringing the art of Elissa Rubin-Mahon’s kitchen to yours. Her fruit preserves and jellies strive to capture the vibrancy of the fruit.

All fruits are procured from growers who believe in sustainable agriculture or gleaned from wild sources.  You can order her preserves online.

tricoloreIdlewild WinesSam Bilbro

Idlewild is based in Healdsburg, CA.  Located in a funky concrete warehouse turned simple winery, the focus is not on a tasting room nor any sense of grandiosity but instead on the vineyards and what is in the bottle.  Grapes are sourced from various locations around Northern California from growers who feel more like partners.  The criterion for selecting a vineyard is quite simple: the site has to be compelling.  Attributes that create a special vineyard are uniqueness in climate, varietal, soil, vine age, and vineyard practice.  Perhaps most important though, the vineyard must show quality, balance, and soul.

Wines can be ordered on their website.
