JoAnn and I enjoyed a wonderful meal with a group of English wine writers at Villa Creek last night. It was the first time in quite a while that I sat down and had a selection of Villa Creek wines with food. What impressed me the most was how the wines were so complementary to the food and conversation. I really like the wines I make but it’s not often I enjoy them in such company with the amazing cuisine of chef Tom. It was nice to enjoy the wine for what it is, a social catalyst that inspires witty conversation and fun.
