Let's toast and Bottoms up!)

Facciamo un brindisi e vuotate i bicchieri
(Let's toast and Bottoms up!)

I heard it through the grapevine, there's a new gig in town. We at Elements are pleased as punch (ummm, wine to be exact) that there's a new pairing that we'd like to be sharing - enjoy your fine dining experience with Elements as you sip a glass of Auburn Road wine.

Elements Cafe, which is owned and operated by Chef Fred Kellermann and his wife, is located in historic Haddon Heights, N.J. Always striving to offer the customer a unique dining experience, Chef Fred uses his culinary talents combined with the freshest ingredients available to create palate pleasing fare. With a flair for trying new things in the kitchen, Chef Fred is always on the lookout for something different. Coupled with the desire to support locally owned businesses, he wanted to do the only thing that seemed natural. And what goes better with food than wine? So, on a muggy summer day at a wine tasting in Medford, Chef Fred came across the booth for Auburn Road Vineyards and was impressed. After sampling several glasses, he decided this was the local vineyard he was looking for.

Located in Pilesgrove, N.J., Auburn Road Vineyards is a locally owned and operated winery and enoteca. The co-operative effort of three couples (and several willing helpers), this vineyard is a sight to behold. Stepping onto the property, and surveying the terroir, one truly feels as though they have entered wine country. From the beginning, when the idea was first planted in their minds and with no practical experience in making wine, they forged ahead. Since then, they have cultivated their dreams and their business into what it is today - an award winning vineyard. Read their story here. http://auburnroadvineyards.blogspot.com/2009/06/continuing-tale-of-auburn-road.html

With an eye to the future and the hope of providing our customers with more dining options, Elements has begun the application process to become a retail outlet for Auburn Road wines. Should we receive approval we will be able to offer our customers the ability to purchase these wines in house. Rest assured, we are still a B.Y.O.B and you will always be allowed to bring your own bottles with you, this is simply another service we hope to provide to our patrons.
But with this future union in mind we are proud to offer the opportunity to enjoy and explore the Auburn Road Winery while enjoying a specially prepared dinner from Elements café and Chef Fred Kellermann.
