My Dad (loves me and Brunello)

IMG_0220

I’ve always been a dad’s girl. (Hi Dad! Love you!). Here he is posing with my pretty mom at Hastings Race Course. We had four big winners on Saturday and then celebrated our men with a big dinner and a nice Brunello. If you are ever invited to a fancy dinner and want to impress, pick a bottle of that. For about $50+ (with an emphasis on up), you will be forever revered as dinner guest of choice, and often invited back.

Father's Day Dinner

Off for a hike. Time is mine this week. I plan to indulge in exercise, life organization and possibly a mini trip to Seattle.

PS: My most reliable purveyor of French champagne and not-so-expensive brunello is this shop on Davie Street.

    Once again you hit the mark! Introduced to Brunello years ago from a VERY good Italian friend (after a taste of this, even better friend) I’ve been hooked since. Recently I was given the honor of choosing the wine in a fine Californian restaurant, It was the Brunello.. The effect was exactly what you described! I have been invited back many a time after that!  You get an A++ in the good taste department!

    I know! Isn’t it divine? I would love to explore more of the food of California. We just got back from San Francisco and had some amazing meals while we were there. Thanks for dropping by!
