I'm planning on being in Napa on Wednesday the 25th and will probably visit at least two wineries while there.

A little over a year ago, my husband and I went arbitrarily cruising in our convertible VW bug looking for fun wineries to visit. We ended up in the middle of the vineyards of Dogliani and took the driveway marked Chionetti. Looking more like someone's house than a winery, we hesitantly asked the smiling people standing outside if we could "fare... Read More
Savannah may not sit in wine country, but this destination has everything that makes for a wonderful winecation: history, breathtaking setting, art, and of course, great food.

If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too.... ... Here's your chance ... Read More
At the heart of Toro lies the Numanthia estate, named in honor of a legendary city of antiquity whose inhabitants chose death over surrender to the invading legions of Rome. Likewise, the robust, gnarled vines of Numanthia have steadfastly resisted the assaults of time, extreme climactic variations and the phylloxera plague. Hewn by nature, stee... Read More
Saturday Morning was a sad day indeed when I found out the Joe had passed. I knew Joe well, better than in passing though we were not quite friends. I had the pleasure of dining with him many times, and the displeasure of dining with him a few times.While not always an easy fellow to get along with Joe was someone worth getting along with, and b...
