  • Just a quick hello. I am totally un-educated in the wine realm. As a matter of fact I never drank a glass until over age 40 and even then barely could finish it and would usually switch to a nice dark beer LOL.  Anyway about 2 years ago my good friend's husband decided he was going to show me what I was missing and every time we went out to dinn...

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops.

Perfect with soy braised fil... Read More
