We have no words for what happened when Jim Dever joined PCC Chef Lynne Vea in the kitchen at our Greenlake Village location.

Winemaker Phil Cline says, "the wine thing was like a mid-life crisis for me" — but we should all be so lucky to have such successful mid-life crises. Naches Heights, one of the highest-elevation grape growers in Washington, grows beautiful biodynamic fruit that makes gorgeous wines. Great fruit, treated right, creates wine that our Wine Guy Jeff Cox calls "a snapshot of this place."

October 10, 2014Pumpkins take to the skies (02:04)
Mike Shriver's organic pumpkins get a few moments of glorious flight before they're packed into crates and shipped to us to be sold as jack o'lanterns.
Shriver farms about 40 different organic crops at Rents Due Ranch (the lack of apostrophe on the 's' is deliberate). He's been supplying PCC since the early '90s. According to Shriver, it's a mutually beneficial relationship:
The varietal of jack o'lantern pumpkins he grows have long, sturdy handles for stems, creating fun opportunities for creative carving. You'll also find his dense, sweet Sugar Pie pumpkins if you're in the mood for pie.
