Wildflower Dish Towel
Flour sack towels are the best in the kitchen—super absorbent, quick drying, and with designs like this wildflower print from the artists at Intrigue Ink, something you’re happy to have out on the counter.

This pleasingly dry sparkler from Bodega Stella Crinita boasts lemony acidity and a slight bitter almond finish. “Pet-Nat” is short for the French pétillant naturel and refers to a naturally sparkling wine made in the ancestral tradition of bottling while the wine is still undergoing fermentation. It takes finesse: Bottle too early and you end up with exploding bottles, too late and you end up with flat wine. Available at Vino per Tutti in Bozeman.
Vino per Tutti Corkscrews
Manage tough cork angles with ease using this genuine two-step waiter’s corkscrew. You need two: one in the kitchen and one in your gearbox or picnic tote. It also claws the cap off beers, Pet-Nats, and pesky kombuchas without screw tops. Available at Vino per Tutti.
