Verdant

JUNE 2018 | SONOMA, CA

The start of summer brings such promise as the first crops of the season start coming to life. The sweetness of a summer peach. The crispness of summer's first cucumber.  At last, mother nature rewards us after a long, wet winter. We bathe in the beauty of all shades of green and enjoyed an incredible feast to welcome the most awaited season of all: summer.

This time, we hit the road and made our way to California wine country, where we had a delicious encounter with local produce, seafood, and of course, extraordinary wine! Guests dined at our jasmine scented table atop the hill, savoring the abundance of the harvest and the greatness of warmer months to come.
