Tales from the Tasting Trail

Forget massages, expensive spa treatments, and acupuncture. When serious unwinding is called for, you just need four days in wine country, no agenda, and an open mind. Check out this Sonoma Diary for tales on a last minute stay and a juicy journal on tasting wines.


Wine and Prejudice

Our relationship to wine is a lot like our relationship to the opposite sex. We sometimes incorrectly conclude that a wine isn’t meant for us based on external factors like labels, prices, and point scores. Review a short list of common pitfalls when it comes to appraising a wine’s character.


Leslie Rudd

Leslie Rudd is an entrepreneur and philanthropist with a real heart for the Napa Valley. Already a proprietor of Dean & DeLuca, Rudd Winery, Edge Hill Estate, PRESS restaurant, and Distillery 209, he recently adopted the historic Oakville Grocery in an effort to restore the beloved destination for wine country visitors.
