Quo Old Vines Grenache Campo De Borja 2012 and 91 Pt. El Brazo Albarino 2020. The purple blew my thoughts with its low worth. All of us thought it was a $30 bottle.
In addition they gave me a promo code to share with you all: KATHEATS for 15% off your first order of $50 or extra!
Like its large sister, the Perfect Pot has a design that makes it a sensible multi-tasking pot: a roasting insert, a notched spoon, and is oven protected to 425 levels. And it has the great ceramic coating on the within so clear up is tremendous slick and straightforward. I LOVE the slate blue!!! Colours are promoting out quick, FYI!
