Peter Dale (chef at the National, our other restaurant) is in Zaragosa, Spain right now at a family wedding. The last time I was around them parts it was with Peter and we drank a lot of Txakoli. What a great wine. It just fits a certain time of year so well. things bloom, things get hot, underwear start to stick... it's Txakoli time. The one we are selling at Five & Ten right now is Txomin Etxanix, which in my best interpretation of Basque pronunciation is Zowmen Zaaniss.
