OCTOBER 19, 2017 Helping the wildfire recovery
The wine country fires caused a lot of damage, that we know. But as the fires come under control and some residents return to their greatly altered lives after mandatory evacuations, we are starting to get a handle on the extent of what happened.

OCTOBER 16, 2017 Tasting wine with Ilaria Petitto of DonnaChiara
It was great to meet and have a fabulous lunch today with Ilaria Petitto, a very savvy ambassador for her family’s DonnaChiara winery in Campagna, Italy. Though Ilaria’s grandfather grew grapes for some of the bigger wineries in the region, Ilaria’s father is an entrepreneur, focused on businesses outside of wine. In the family, Ilaria’s mother Chiara decided to carry on the family tradition by growing grapes for use by the estate, under its own label.
