Wine Pairing: 2018 Aromatherapy Viognier
Viognier is an exciting alternative to Chardonnay and pairs super well with soft, creamy cheese. A floral nose with fruity stone flavors like
peach and pear, with a hint of citrus, makes this a perfect pairing for
our baked brie and raspberry tarts. This wine is sold by Firstleaf WineClub.
Jill and Tara fully support the DNA Doe Project in their efforts to close cold cases and returned the lost and missing to their families, an eminently worthy goal! Founded in 2017, the volunteer DNA Doe Project is an exciting new initiative that uses genetic genealogy to identify 'John and Jane Does'. Today, the DNA Doe Project is an important law enforcement and medical examiner resource, helping them solve their most intractable cases.
An all-volunteer organization that has attracted some of the best genetic genealogists in the industry, they work towards the common goal of reuniting John and Jane Does with their families. The success have been incredible. Most recently, a 37 year old cold case was solved, "Buckskin Girl", so named from the handmade deerskin poncho she was wearing. She is Marcia L. King, and her family has finally been reunited with her.
