Ever since I can remember my family has celebrated Bastille Day on July 14th, the most important French holiday, because it also happens to be my father’s birthday. No one loves French food or a party more than Dad, so in 1995 after my year abroad in the Rhone my parents and brother met me in Paris for the greatest fête of our lives. We had no idea the epic 24-hour celebration that awaited us!…

I’ve become so accustomed to getting evites that when a physical invitation arrived in the mail from Jordan Winery announcing their 40th anniversary celebration it immediately raised my expectations. And, when the invitation came in an elegant box like the one sent by the team at Jordan Winery for not one but two events, a luncheon and tasting retrospective of 40 years of Jordan, as well as a party that night – the anticipation was…

Thinking About Making Your Own Wine – Here’s A Personal Story from One of Our Women & Wine Fans

Several years ago my husband and I made a trip to Napa Valley with two of our good friends and were introduced to the Finkelstein family, owners of Judd’s Hill Winery. At the time they were located up on beautiful Howell Mountain. We had a lovely tasting and visit with the owners, Art and Bunny. We met Judd, their son and assistant winemaker at the time, and his lovely new bride Holly.

Shining the Light on Wine Glasses

By Guest Contributor Kirsten Fox, Headmistress, Fox School of Wine
