In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

A simple dish for midweek - Roast lamb served with a potato gratin or 
galette or dauphinois, or any kind of spuds, gravy is a must! A friend shared with us her delicious gravy recipe, she makes it to accompany her sauerbraten - make a regular gravy but add ginger snaps.

A bottle of our handcrafted pinot noir is just perfect with this dish and a good way to 
celebrate the first day of March.

Montauk to Martinborough

It's a good thing when our Montauk friends are visiting New Zealand and find time 
to check in on our vines at Stonecrop vineyard. 
Leo and Lacey are tramping (that's overnight hiking) champions! climbing every 
mountain, it would seem, on the South Island and the North Island.

These two intrepid cousins found the time to stop off in Martinborough. Located at the foot of New Zealand's North Island, Martinborough is a charming wine village home to a number of boutique vineyards, producing high quality wine on a small scale.

Stonecrop vineyard is located on the renowned Dry River Road, a short drive from Martinborough's village square - John Martin the founder of the hamlet had the streets radiate out from 
the square in the shape of the Union Jack.

Lobster Bisque

A rich and luxurious soup for a chilly Winter's eve - During the Winter months in the Stonecrop kitchen fish stocks and fish soups are always bubbling away on the stove, 
putting all of those tasty bones and shells to good use.
'waste not want not'
We are fortunate to live in a hamlet where fresh fish is dropped off on our doorstep regularly, and occasionally Captain Andy goes out on his Steiger Craft fishing 
boat and hauls in some catches of his own.
