Ciao Sue & Jim!

Orinda, California

Favorite wine country tour:
On a tandem bicycle along the back roads of Sonoma County through Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Chalk Hill.

Quote to live by:
"Life is short, and we do not have too much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us. So be swift to love, make haste to be kind."

Favorite board game:
Scrabble, we are very competitive

Recommended food & wine pairing:
Paella and Syrah, of course!

Perspective on Italians:
We were bitten by the wine bug in our thirties on an extended trip to Italy. It's hard to live among Italians and not develop a love for wine. They are proud of their wine and love showing off to guests.

Books on the nightstand:
Jim: "In the Place of Justice" by Wilbert Rideau
Sue: "Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese
