September Rioja Wine Dinner & Salami of the Month

September’s Salami of the Month Club Pick: Chorizo Rioja
In a restless dream last night I fell into a discussion with the Ingenious Gentleman from La Mancha, Don Quixote. He told me he already knew that Olympic Provisions’ Chorizo Rioja was the salami of the month for September and this made him very happy. Then he looked at me and said, “I am a man of tradition and this traditional chroizo with its sweet and smoked paprika, garlic, and oregano reminds of my childhood when I would travel North to Rioja.”
Join us for our Salami of the Month Club* Pickup Party (sans Don Quixote or maybe we will have Tyler dress up as him!) on September 12th from 6 to 10 pm at Olympic Provisions Southeast. Guest will be treated to a sampling our Chorizo Rioja along with this months selected wine pairing. While there, why not become a member of our Salami of the Month Club* and enjoy 10% off our Chorizo Rioja all month long!

*What’s a Salami of the Month Club? Glad you asked! Here at Olympic Provisions, we make 12 different salamis crafted from all-natural local pork using Old World techniques. This lends itself well to our Salami of the Month club, which ensures that you try one of these delicious salamis each month, delivered right to your door. Each lucky recipient gets either 1 or 3 (your choice) of each month’s featured salami, which we ship the second Tuesday of the month. Included with the salami are detailed tasting notes and examples of how Salumist Elias Cairo likes to enjoy it. If you purchase a gift membership, the object of your meaty affection receives a welcome letter letting them know they are now a part of the Salami of the Month Club, who purchased it for them, what salami they’ll be gifted with each month, and when to expect delivery (so they can be waiting at the door).
