Memorial Park

Sitting below the majestic redwood trees just off the California coast, I was reminded of how after years of patience, something as small as a seed can grow to the height of a redwood. That idea definitely provided me with a bit of motivation and peace as Bryersantis, in its infancy, tries to steadily grow. […]

The 2005 Harris Tesla Cab was tasted tonight at our Bryersantis Livermore Valley wine review meeting. We decanted the bottle and served it with ground turkey tacos (I know it’s not the best pairing, but we were all in the mood for Mexican food). It’s a smooth wine and became smoother the longer it was […]

A Wine Tour For Friends

Ruby Hill Fountain

What could I say when a good friend I hadn’t seen in way too long asked me if I’d take her wine tasting in Livermore???  I responded with a, “HECK YA!”  I was thrilled with this opportunity to show my friends the best of Livermore.  I quickly realized that showing all Livermore has to offer […]

My Uncle and Aunt brought their family over to our house yesterday to celebrate the 4th of July with Rachel and I.  Upon seeing each other, the children ran off together to play games and get ready for the nights festivities.  It didn’t take me long to notice the wine bottle sitting on the counter, […]
