A little while ago, Mister T and I visited Clos Pegase in company of good friends. The winery brought back memories from more than a decade ago; it was one of the winery we stopped by during our 2001 road-trip. I still remember why we picked that one: it was designed by the architect Michael Graves—I was digging his style at the time.Read More
We stopped at Benziger Winery in Sonoma last year, while we were hosting friends. It was a delightful and interesting visit. The tram tour, with a few stops to tell more about the history and to show us their wine process, gave us nice point of views of the vineyards and was overall appreciated by young and old alike!Read More

With the great weather we're having right now, I feel like wine tasting season is fast approaching. Um what? Oh! Don't get me wrong, I don't wait for "the season"...I am tasting wine already. On a weekly basis—sometimes daily. But I digress.

The winery I'm showing you today is St-Francis.Read More
