Antonia is travelling for work, so I'm a bachelor again!!

And, left to my own devices, I came up with the following incomparable combination for dinner tonight: a bottle of '95 Opus One (which was outstanding), a frozen burrito (not pictured, and far less outstanding), and a Judge Judy marathon. I love how Judge Judy is coveting my wine. Sorry Judge, the bottle is empty and I'm not telling you where the decanter is.

While I would much prefer to have my woman home with me tonight, I must admit this is not a bad second option and life is, as it really always is, very, very good...…..

I was at the first Napa Valley wine auction in 1981 when the first case of yet to be released Opus was auctioned for the unheard of price of $25,000!!! I can still see a very excited Robert Mondavi, who was seated in the first row, looking around for the ...

I must admit I grew up in England and for thirty years I thought there were two wine regions: Bordeaux and rest-of-the-world, and I wasn’t so keen on the second. Made my first trip to Napa in the late 90s with my then fiancé (now wife) and I was very impr... 

Ah, It’s La Dolce Vita for sure, my friend!

The good news is the Burrito was better than I expected....
