A Note from Sergio
A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to spend a week cruising the Mediterranean as the wine expert on a cruise organized by Napa Valley Wine Reserve, a company whose sole purpose is to help people who love wine grow to love it even more. It was a remarkable week of pristine blue skies, a gorgeous cerulean ocean, fantastic food, amazing wines and wonderful people. Sometimes my life strains credulity with how great it gets.
I was really fortunate to have the opportunity to float along on this big beautiful boat all while meeting new friends and reconnecting with people I hadn't seen in a while. We stopped at tremendous destinations, places like Positano, Porto Ercole, Portofino and Capri--locations that have the glamour of movie sets--and we visited with some of my very favorite producers.
Since I've been back, everyone keeps asking what we drank. It's only natural. Napa Valley Wine Reserve has a well-deserved reputation for providing the highest quality wine experience, and when you're talking about drinking wines from producers like Giacomo Conterno, Bruno Giacosa, Biondi-Santi, Soldera, Movia, and Castello dei Rampolla, among others, it's not hard to see why. It was a star-studded wine list, and it's my pleasure to offer it to you today.
Every once in a while, the fates conspire to make our lives really fantastic. This offering is a reminder of that, and how when it happens, we need to celebrate it. Life is grand. Drink to it, my friends.
