“I was always a good adventurer. I was never afraid of risks. I always had a good philosophy about risks. The only risk is to waste your life, so that when you die, you say, “Oh, I wish I had done this.” I did everything I wanted to do, and I continue to.”
– Francis Ford Coppola
Our philosophy? Live a life of adventure. But what exactly do we mean when we say adventure?
We mean living! From finally nailing that Beef Wellington recipe you've been working on for years to parasailing over the Atlantic to taking a cross country road-trip to see an old friend to bingeing our favorite show on Netflix. It's a life without regrets.
We believe in the splendor and satiety of the every day, but also the excitement of the exotic.
Nothing is too big or too small to be an adventure.
So whether you take the road less traveled or the road well worn, take the one that matters to you. Make your mark. Define your own adventure.
The last few weeks of summer are so precious; you want to take it all in. Get in that last lake swim, one final camping trip, and probably one more al fresco dinner party - the kind that lasts from late afternoon to well past sunset, consists of multiple bottles of wine and lots of things to nibble on.
Ah, September. The month that asks you to return your white pants to whence they came and implores you to pull out your well-worn sweaters and boots.
Summer colds are the absolute worst. They come on quick and force you to spend precious summer daylight under the covers, binging on shows you’ve seen one hundred times.
I’m a big believer that all summer adventures should include dessert. There are certain desserts that just seem to make sense in summer and not at any other time of the year.
Wow. That’s all I can really say about our time at the Newport Folk Festival this year.
Pesto – one of the tastiest, easiest, most versatile ways to spice up just about anything. First of all, it’s bright green. Second of all, it tastes like cheese and basil, which are arguably two of the best things in life.
I like to think that through food and wine you can be wherever you want to be whenever you want to be there.
Summer seems to be a season when every ounce of time is planned. Warm Saturdays and Sundays are for weddings and boat trips and pool parties.
Summer in the city: humidity radiates from everything, and somehow even the most powerful A/C doesn’t hold up...
July 4th weekend is a great time to gather your friends and family and celebrate our great nation. It’s also a great time to gather your friends and family and have a reason to celebrate life in general.
If there’s one thing that's for certain – it’s that summer is time for burgers. On the grill or in cast iron. On a picnic table or for a living room picnic. There’s really no wrong way to eat a burger in the summer.
There’s something about summer that makes me crave Clam Chowder. It feels completely counter-intuitive – a hot, creamy soup on a hot day? But you know what? It works. It smells like ocean, and tastes like the sea breeze.
This summer, there is absolutely no doubt that you will be invited to a
So…all of a sudden your best friend called her boyfriend who called his buddies and now you’ve got about 15 people
The fairground was amazingly right smack in the middle of downtown Napa, not in a parking lot miles away from all humanity. The convenience of it all had me hooked before we even walked in.
BottleRock. The word had me excited for months. As someone who has lived, played and worked in wine country I shamefully had never been to experience it before.
