A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread - and Thou.
I just picked up a loaf of French bread, my "thou" has this weekend off but the wine part has always been tricky. Usually I get recommendations from of friend of mine -- otherwise I end up buying a bottle because it has a nice label or a fun name. Of course, the best way to choose a wine is to taste it and one of the best ways to taste new wines is at a wine festival. And there are several coming up in the area. Make sure you have a designated driver!
