Perfect any time of the year, but especially wonderful for cool fall evening, this warm, melty, savory and sweet sandwich is a perfect romantic wind-down meal to share with someone special-especially yourself, on a outdoor porch watching the sunset, wrapped in a cozy quilt. This pairs perfectly with Grandma Grace's tomato salad and Borgo Medioevale's Muscadine Cider BLUSH.

About The Vineyard

[Borgo Medioevale - Proudly growing the Muscadine: America's First Grape] There was a time when the words "green vineyards" meant that the harvest wasn't yet ripe. To those who patronize eco-friendly companies, however, those words take on a far greater meaning. The Vineyard at Borgo Medioevale is dedicated to green vineyards and even greener business practices. Eco friendly companies are dedicated to cleaner regulations for manufacturing and safer, more harmonious applications of resources. Green vineyards, such as The Vineyard at Borgo Medioevale, as well as organic wineries around the country are adopting new practices and cutting edge technologies for growing and harvesting. Our goal is to enhance local agriculture and create jobs while holding true to the mission of our parent company, LC Development, in fostering the harmonious co-existence of Man, Industry and Nature. The Vineyard at Borgo Medioevale has taken steps to ensure its place among respected eco friendly companies by implementing the following procedures at its home offices in Suffolk County, New York, as well as at its green vineyards in Swansea, South Carolina:

All company employees work from home as telecommuters, thus eliminating additional emissions from person transportation. Meetings are held mostly via phone or web-based meeting software, to cut down on additional transportation usage.
All work is completed via email whenever possible, whether we’re working on our websites, communicating with each other, or processing orders, thus virtually eliminating the use of excess paper. Documents are printed only when absolutely necessary.
The office is completely shut down at the end of the business day, therefore eliminating waste from excessive use of electricity – and protecting our customers’ data from loss caused by power surges or lightning strikes during evening hours. This ensures faster, more efficient work, saving us from unnecessary expenditures, and our community from unnecessary drains on resources.
All our grapes are hand picked, not machine harvested, and our grape products are made naturally, with local produce and vegan-friendly products, without chemical additives.Maintaining green vineyards is an integral part of our business model, and we are committed to following that model in all aspects of our development. The Vineyard at Borgo Medioevale, one of the newest eco friendly companies in the agricultural marketplace, is proud to present our harvest of Muscadine grapes in a variety of delicious, nutritious and aromatic products such as Muscadine grape cider, red Muscadine preserves and white Muscadine preserves.
