La Dolce Vita

The best part of making wine is hanging with our fabulous A-Team. Each year, we pack our bags and hit the road with Thomas and partner Genna to research and enjoy wines from other great regions around the world.

Most recently, France and Italy caught our attention. In Paris, we made the requisite stop at the iconic Chez L'Ami Louis and, on the tip from a friend, found Chez Josephine. We enjoyed spectacular wines from Burgundy and Bordeaux that showed the benefit of merely traveling from the winery cellar directly to these great establishments.

After Paris, we charted our course to the beautiful island of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Absolutely gorgeous, we grabbed our swimsuits and sun block and headed for parts unknown with our molto bene guide, Giovanni.
