Viana La Place and Evan Kleiman write in their classic 1985 book "Cucina Fresca" that "the true flavors of food" really shine at temperatures ranging from
"barely warm to cool." This book is a collection of Italian recipes designed to be served lukewarm or cold. Perhaps the greatest joy of room temperature dishes
is the way they give the cook time to cool off away from the hot kitchen!

The name of the estate is the first indication of its long, illustrious past.
Located in the heart of Provence, near routes traveled by Crusaders
in the early Middle Ages, the Commanderie de Peyrassol was founded
by the Knights of Templar who were dedicated to protecting the Crusaders
en route to, and in, the Holy Land.
The first recorded grape harvest took place in 1256 and winemaking
has continued uninterrupted throughout the centuries.
When the Templars were brought down in 1311 by the King of France,
who was nervous of their power and jealous of their wealth, the Knights of Malta became the fortunate owners of the Commanderie. They remained in control, flawlessly maintaining the vineyards until the French Revolution, when it was taken over by the State. The Rigord family purchased the estate in 1870.
The current proprietor, Françoise Rigord, has been making the wines
at Peyrassol since 1981 and has now been joined by her son, François.
Drink well chilled and with black olives, tomato-based dishes.
$14.99 for centuries of history in bottle.
