Feel Better

Seasonal Drinking

drink like we like to eat

We like to drink like we like to eat, organic/biodynamic, and with the seasons. In Spring, when local asparagus arrives, for instance, we eat it as often as we can, especially as long as it’s available from Richard at Lucky Dog Farm at the Fort Greene Farmers’ Market. And, even though asparagus isn’t the easiest vegetable to pair with wine, it generally happily accompanies the natty whites, roses, and light reds that freshly arrive at Thirst along with its appearance. Later, when Summer hits its stride, as in right now, we’re all-in with zucchinis, eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, basil, etc., which easily pair well with the seasonal thirst wines (vins de soif) that are our cornerstone.

jump on our impossible wines

Our suggestion is that you should approach our impossible wines made in limited quantities by small farmer-winemakers like you approach seasonal produce. When a favorite limited organic, biodynamic, natural thirst wine arrives, jump on it, make sure to purchase enough (and take advantage of our case discount) so that your thirst for that wine is sated before it sells out. Because, thanks to the growing interest in naturally made wines, sometimes the wines sell out, yes, instantaneously.

fall is around the corner

When Fall and Winter roll around, along with heartier eating, you may, like us, start to have a thirst for more “serious” wines (vins de garde) — ageworthy wines with the “right amount” of age on them — but that doesn’t mean you stop drinking whites, roses, and lighter reds, because they still have their place at the table.

drink better, eat better, feel better

In short, if you want to feel better, eat better, drink better, and exercise. Because basically it’s as simple as that.
