A few weeks ago a sweet petite woman walked into the store, with a keen sense of place, our wine store. Asking many questions about the wines we stock, her interest were driven by the small vineyards we seek out for several reasons: biodiversity, organic, winemakers making wine, not for the consumer but for the terroir of place.

We chatted and became friends instantly, she explain that her and her partner are traveling around the United States visiting farms, chefs, Universities, gathering information on farming, wholesome ideas people inploy in farms, winemaking, food.

We invited them for dinner one Friday evening, talking about many ideas of our wine theory, and what they have been doing on their trip since the begining.

A very enjoyable evening.

They’re both incredible writers, Julie being a photographer by profession and Lee in his prior life an Architect.

And so I invite you to read and explore they’re wonderful website: to read the incites of their travels and explorations’ of the unique communities that are building on ideas we all need to ponder about to sustainablity, organics, the true essence of the good life!
