FABLE 163: THE BEE AND JUPITER

A Queen Bee journeyed to Mount Olympus, to offer Jupiter a pot of her hive’s finest honey. Delighted with her gift, Jupiter promised to grant any request she desired. “Give me a sting,” she replied. “So that if any mortal attempts to steal my honey, I may kill him.” Jupiter loved mankind, and was disappointed by the Bee’s spiteful wish. “You may have your request,” he answered, “but when you strike another, you will leave your sting behind, and it will cost you your life.”

Evil wishes, like chickens, come home to roost.

Winemaker Notes
The base for our Chardonnay program has historically been the Coquina Vineyard in the Arroyo Grande Valley. Just a few miles past Lake Lopez on super sandy ground lies the Coquina. Named after the Spanish term for shellfish, the old ocean bottom ground is amazing for a more refined Chardonnay. We pick this lot solely on the acidity level of the grapes. If we can nail the natural acidity down in the wine, we end up with the perfect balance of minerality and fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
Key lime pie Mustard rub whole roasted chicken Dover sole piccata
