Sometimes I find myself on auto; going from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ without knowing how I got there. Today I slowed down, breathed in beauty and kindred conversation with friends. It is a day I will remember.


Hope you’re taking it slow this Saturday. Apple cider from the vineyards of Normandy France provide beautiful apple-y flavor without being high in alcohol. The perfect picnic wine.

As spring kicks into gear I find myself gravitating to ale; Belgium ale to be exact. There’s a sour earthiness to them that is pleasurable, especially on a visibly blooming spring day.

The loveliest roses in the world come from Provence, France 🇫🇷. Provence has the luxury of selecting from a plethora of red grape varieties for its wines. The gentlest maceration produces floral berry aromas and flavors.
