Editor's Note: Everybody celebrates Thanksgiving just a little bit differently, which is why we've been hitting up some of our winemaking friends for some of their Thanksgiving recipes and wine pairings, which we'll be featuring over the next week. This time we reached out to Mimi Dudley Casteel, the second generation at Bethel Heights Vineyard in Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills. Mimi, along with her father Ted Casteel, tends the vines that have made this winery's offerings among some of the best over the past 30+ years. Her gougères are the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer--easy to make, sophisticated and a mouthwatering match for the 2008 Bethel Heights "Estate" Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (or both).

Saturday, October 30th marks the first-ever Rally to Restore Sanity, an anti-rhetoric, anti-belligerence attempt by comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert to make our political discourse a little less volatile.
What does this have to do with wine, you ask?
We believe that good wine should be affordable to everyone, which is why we go out of our way to make sure we offer great values from all over the world. Sure, we love Cru Burgundy and Classified Growth Bordeaux as much as the next guy, but we can't afford to drink them often either.
Spend 15 minutes talking to Peter Rosback, and you won't be surprised to learn the thin, red-headed Sineann Winery owner and winemaker is also a hockey player. He peppers his conversation with good-natured, witty crosschecks and self-deprecating barbs, every now and then turning the tables to make you wonder whom, exactly, is interviewing whom.
