This Bud's For Zin

 Just like an ice cold beer hits the spot on a warm day working out in the yard, seeing our first “buds” this spring brought a huge smile to my face.  As the new owner of a home on a small Lodi vineyard, I can’t wait to watch and learn as our gnarly vines transform […]

Let Them Eat Cake

A Tale of Two Pizzas . . . And Then Some

Under the Brooklyn Bridge Lucky enough to be in New York City for business, I spent the weekend with my older brother who made the move to the Big Apple a few years ago. What do we do every time I visit? EAT! For me, a trip to NYC is not complete without downing that […]
