Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.

Happy Anniversary!

I thought that this would be the proper forum to wish my wife, Christine, a Happy 2nd Anniversary.

Christine is an amazing woman and has been exceptionally supportive and patient of my endeavors. Ever since we were married, she has been continually growing in her appreciation of fine wine. I attribute a lot of this to Olivier Magny of Ô Chateau, who got us even more excited about French wine while on this trip.

The day after our wedding, we boarded a plane leaving for Paris and began what would be an amazing life experience. Today’s entry is our way to look back at a few of the memories and a way to share them with you.

On the plane ride home, we each made a list of our favorite things about our honeymoon. We hope you enjoy them!
