The Churn: Cold Climate Wines and More

Natalie Champa Jennings / Heavy Table

The Marquette and other locally developed cold weather grapes get their due in the Napa Valley Register (cold climate wines pictured above, from our 2011 reportage on the International Cold Climate Wine Competition). A 15-minute mini-doc about Twin Cities co-ops, from the film Food For Change, but it bizarrely omits any mention of the spectacularly relevant “co-op wars” (via Daughter Number Three). Tilia is selling a limited edition T-shirt, with proceeds going to the Linden Hills Farmers Market. Madison food cart Igo Vego makes a “top 10 healthiest US food carts” list, and local street food makes this list of 101 best food trucks, including Bloomy’s Roast Beef (#95), Vellee Deli (#92), Sushi Fix (#90), Smack Shack (#32), and Chef Shack (#10). And City Pages reviews the new Uptown late-night haunt Nightingale.
