Silver Point’s 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand hits all the right notes for this type of varietal. Bright apricot and small hints of passion fruit and nectarine make this light wine such a pleasure to drink when the weather gets warm. Use it as a base for a delicious white sangria or enjoy a glass with your favorite seafood such as crab, shrimp, mussels or scallops. Sauvignon blancs are a favorite at my house and this one from Silver Point, will undoubtedly become a favorite with you. Enjoy!
There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess. As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home. A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal. The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household. Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings. Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.
