The First Thing I’m Going To Do When I Get To Paris

I can remember now, with a clarity that makes the nerves in the back of my neck constrict, when New York began for me, but I cannot lay my finger upon the moment it ended, can never cut… Continue reading The First Thing I’m Going To Do When I Get To Paris

Bubbles & Eggs at Egg Shop Nolita, March 15th

In our culture, bubbly wines are too often reserved for special occasions or celebrations. But I strongly believe that, first of all, every day should be celebrated just a little bit, and definitely with delicious wine and food–and secondly, sparkling wines can be handcrafted, terroir-expressive wines with incredible flavor and personality.
