JUST Chips from JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery 



just_chipsJUSTIN Vineyards & Winery is making distinct strides in their "JUST Go Green" initiative by recycling their used French oak barrels.

The wood for each barrel is hand-selected for its distinctive characteristics from five different forests located in central France. The chips can be used either dry or after soaking to enhance grilled food prepared on either charcoal or gas grills, or with traditional smokers. The flavor profile is essentially of fine oak wood with overtones of richness from the wine flavors. JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery produces estate grown and produced wines in the heart of the Paso Robles appellation in Central California. JUSTIN's emphasis is on making Bordeaux-style blends and single varietals, combining Old World tradition with New World techniques. JUST Chips are available for $14.50 per two-pound bag.
