I always love to see the Nopa team even if it’s outside of SF in Sonoma! watch my interview with Chef/Owner Laurence Jossel on the blog here.
Enjoying a glass of AldenAli Pinot Noir with Dan Kosta. I had this for the first time a few weeks earlier at San Francisco’s Chefsgiving (when I fell in love with it) so I was thrilled to enjoy it again a few weeks later.
Cheers to enjoying some delicious Patz & Hall Chardonnay!
Adam and Dianna Lee sharing Dianna’s lovely Flaunt Sparkling Wine which recently hit the market. These wines are lovely and something any sparkling wine lover must try!
So thrilled to meet the Stark Family, Mark and Teri who I’m a huge fan of with various Santa Rosa Restaurants
