Sampling our 2016 vintage 😋
Champagne: The Essential Guide to the Wines, Producers and Terroirs of this Iconic Region by Peter Liem - Ten Speed Press. If you want to give an elegant gift to someone, especially wine lovers, this is it! As you can see, it contains two compartments - one is the book and the one with a tab contains several detailed maps of Champagne wine country. If you don’t drink champagne much, you may not know that it is only called champagne if it comes from Champagne, in France, otherwise it is called sparkling wine. There has been much discussion over the years about expanding this prestigious terroir to include towns just outside Champagne. This is in the hands of the National Institute of Origin and Quality and the French courts right now, and the decision which will affect the livelihood of those in about 40 nearby towns won’t be known for a few more years. My mother used to refer to drinking champagne as “a sense of occasion.” While it is true it is mostly drunk at a celebratory event, champagne is something I often like to have with an appetizer - oysters being the perfect accompaniment. Champagne is after all wine and there is good reason to have it as a cocktail or whenever you like - if one can afford it. But like other wines, you can find fine less expensive champagnes too. And don’t forget to support California wine country for good, domestic sparkling wine also, such as Schramsberg. As Coco Chanel once said “I only drink champagne on two occasions, when I’m in love and when I’m not.” For more info go to author @peterliem - Another expert I enjoy following is @mr.ridington . . #champagne #sparklingwine #winetime #methodechampenoise #perlage #giftideas #lovechampagne #igers #igersfrance #igerscincinnati #departuresmag #tmagazine #tenspeedpress #drinknapasonoma #supportwinecountry #schramsberg  #bookstores #throughmyiphone #josephbethbooksellers #instagood #wineenthusiast #winespectator #wsjoffduty #getlitsy #winemaking #winemaker
My Favorite Holiday Card - The wedding of my son Patrick to Christine on September 30, 2017, at the Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, CA. @jennbagwellphoto @melodywhitestudios.  We have such wonderful memories of that day. However, their wedding was one of the last events held there. A week later the California wildfires destroyed this beautiful winery, except poignantly a large LOVE sculpture among the vines. Our hearts go out to those who suffered a loss due to the fires. We encourage everyone who can to visit Napa/Sonoma/Carneros in 2018 and/or buy wines from there. . #happycouple #paradiseridge #lookoflove #weddingphoto #sonomacounty #santarosa #momentslikethese #californiawinecountry #napavalley #carneros #celebrate #igersusa #igerscalifornia #bridesmagazine #weddingphotography #igworld #igers #tmagazine #wsjoffduty #drinknapasonoma #supportwinecountry #napasonomarelief
Napa’s first distillery holds tours and tastings at its distillery . They distill small batches of brandy/vodka , rum, and their gin is 🤯. I also learned a very good lesson in not swirling my hard liquor. Wine is fine , but liquor ... especially liquor from @napavalleydistillery is better...so much better!! 🍸🥃🍹 #napavalley #drinknapasonoma #napastrong #drinklocal #gin #distillery #rum #dontswirlit #liquidgold
FROM NAPA WITH ❤ came out in the end of September-- just before the devastating month-long wine country fires. By day 5 of the fires, my editor and I agreed it was best to abandon promoting the book until life was stable again-- not at all sure when that would be. You can imagine my shock, when the phone rang at the end of October, with news that the book was in second print. It made me realize there is a reason Napa is on everyone's bucket list.  ThankYouThankYou to @missbigelow + @sfchronicle_style for the generous story. #visitnapasonoma #drinknapasonoma 🎄❤🎄🎄❤🎄🎄

Rebuilding. While the embers of the firestorm were still burning, a group of Napa and Sonoma-based Winemakers, Sommeliers and Chefs got together to pay it forward to members of their very own community most devastated by the fires. The community that lost their homes - the community who lost everything. (Bravo to those who made last night happen - the 1st major fundraiser there - @alexistraina @trevortraina @chefthomaskeller @kyleconnaughton @ckostow @lauragcunningham @chefdurfee @kenfulk @theculinaryinstituteofamerica @tippingpoint) #napasonomarelief #drinknapasonoma #togetherwecan
