Living here in Napa Valley, I am surrounded by breathtaking beauty. There is so much beauty that there is no reason to choose one favorite location. But I do have a soft spot for Silverado Trail.

by

After hearing wonderful things about St. Clair Brown Winery from friends, this is what I found on their website – “To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, […]

Besides tasting many amazing wines, what I have enjoyed most about blogging is how much I have learned about wine and the winemaking process. The power of the vine to wine process is very seductive.

When I first moved to Napa, one of my favorite events was the Thursday evening Chef’s Market on First Street in downtown Napa. It was like a big street fair that included food vendors, live music and farmers’ produce stands. I always ran into a friend or two and had a great time! But in […]
