Dynamic Organic Bubbles
The holidays just aren't the holidays without a bottle of bubbly!...
Bio-dynamic Champagne is still something of a rarity. I'm talking Champagne Champagne - the real thing, not the fakes and wannabes from regions other than Champagne, France.
Champagne Fleury was the first House in Champagne to convert their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture. That was in 1989 and the visionary was Jean-Pierre Fleury.
Fleury Champagne produces about 200,000 bottles of Champagne per year - half is sold domestically and half goes to export. The family owned vineyards are located in the Côte des Bar area of Champagne, France - about 45 k. south of Troyes.
The taste? Clean, fresh, authentic and dynamically organic!
Roses & Geraniums
Delicate and soothing - the newest fragrance combo from NYR (that's Neal's Yard Remedies, natch) is scented as gently as it is formulated. Made with shea and cocoa butters, enhanced with avocado oil, this shower gel and accompanying body lotion make perfect stocking stuffers for that sweet, delicate someone. Scent is from prescious rose otto and geranium flowers.
Smoothment - [To Start The Year Off Right!]
Timed for launch before the holidays, the 3-Pack of organic smoothie blends is an ideal gift or stocking stuffer for anyone that enjoys delicious gourmet food, or whom may be looking for healthy superfoods to boost a health commitment in the New Year.
3 Flavors - Antioxidants, Omega-3, Protein
Our Fave: The rich, chocolaty Protein Smoothie Mixer features three of the most nutrient-dense superfoods in the world (hemp, cacao and maca) and a delicious low-glycemic natural sweetener from Peru (lucuma). This kosher blended powder is a nourishing source of protein and omegas, as well as antioxidants found in the feel-good cacao. Blend this gluten-free Smoothie Mixer with a banana, peanut butter, non-milk of your choice and honey.
