A Weekend in Bordeaux

Grace Hafner in BordeauxAs you may know, I moved to Bordeaux last September, and while I moved here to get my Masters, I really moved here for the food (and the wine).

My parents came to visit for a few days in July, and we tried a number of my favorites and even some places I hadn’t been! I’ve put together an itinerary of my favorite things to do in the city, but really, you can’t go wrong here.

6 Months after the Fires

Tubbs Fire RecoveryIt’s been six months since the fires ripped through Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino Counties. Every day, we are reminded of its impact on our community and landscape – traffic jams through Santa Rosa where the fire crossed six lanes of highway, dump trucks filled to the brim with debris from burned homes, charred trees spot the hillsides, and each day new stories are shared. Everyone has a story of their experience with the fires. Everyone was impacted in one way or another – some much more than others. On our blog, we wanted to share what it has been like during the past six months. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support both during the fires and continuing to present. Thank you.

Tips from a Somm
