Tweet Keeping it real… well I know Steve Heimoff will. The natural buzz that’s developing is, “Will the Jackson Family Wines be keeping it real?” Yes, I believe all parties will. I’ve known Steve Heimoff long enough to know that if he’s not true to himself, he’ll crumble and so will everything else around him. […]
This new position for Steve couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person… And, congratulations to KJ for recognizing that his talent will enrich all of their story lines. They simply made him that once-in-a-lifetime offer that he couldn’t refuse.
Sorry, Peter, that I’ve called you “wacky.” I mean it the best possible way. When I’m dead and gone, I hope people refer to me as having been “wacky.”
The back end of a blog is a pretty interesting place to be. Being on the front end of one, you get to read what people find interesting and relevant (enough to write about it). We edited it several times and then we published…. But, we’re always on the back end.

Tweet This past week, I spent many hours working, writing, meeting people, enjoying children, and harvesting some lavender on Sunday… which brings me to musings of lavender and wine publicist advice with Tenuta Polvaro. I felt guilty cutting some fresh lavender from my garden bees; but, then I remembered that the lavender is very much […]
The Hosemaster of Wine® comes clean, when it’s all said and done, and he’s just a great guy who’s very good at satire.
Tweet I love wine blogging on Saturdays. Writing isn’t frantic, because the phone’s not ringing. The home office is quiet… period; except when the doorbell rings. But, I know it’s my mailman Paul with a package of something I’ve ordered, and that’s great. Thinking outside of my boxed self is enjoyable. The rants don’t come […]
