Join us on a routine stop at the Frescobaldi Cantina where saying “il pieno, fill’er up” will provide months worth of good drinkin’ and more than a lifetime of soulful satisfaction—guaranteed! After all, the taste of the wine isn’t nearly as important as the taste of the friendship. Note: You might enjoy a couple of […]

“You’re so lucky!” We often hear that phrase. But actually, we believe that chance and intention are best friends.

We are surrounded by vineyards of Antinori. Fortunately, they are one of the oldest wine-making families in the world and have learned quite a few things over the past 600 years. As a result, everything they do is precise, immaculate and beautiful. Perfect neighbors. The vineyards are irresistible. They change constantly with each season, daily […]

Mostly, we enjoy the rolling meadows surrounding […]
