so many wonderful wines to try
french style courtyard outside tasting room
the reds
simplicity works
bread and crackers
risotto with taleggio, yummm!
steak and potatoes is true comfort food
calm colors, with glass ceramic and wood
venison salad for me, it was all about deer this weekend
fresh flowers add a touch of life and nature

transparency is important in all aspects of life
