Plain and simple – Jonathan and I love wine!

Anybody who knows us knows this about us.  Sometimes we may like it a little too much, but I digress…

We got married in the Napa valley in June, 2004. Jonathan was already a gourmet chef and I have always been a connoisseur of great food.

Planning our wedding was an incredible experience.  The many trips out to Napa really cultivated and solidified our love of fine wine.

Then we had our honeymoon in Italy in fall of 2004.  Unbeknownst to us, it was during white truffle season, the first cold press of olive oil, and vino novello.

Talk about a gourmet’s trifecta!  That year sealed the deal for our love of all things gourmet, and would shape the future of many vacations to come.

We have planned many vacations around food and wine.

Wherever we go (even with Addison) we try and experience something about the history of the food and wine of the region we are visiting.

So it was only natural we’d want a wine cellar.  I’ll be honest and say that this has been Jonathan’s baby.  He has been the one behind the engine of this part of the project.  A man needs his cave, and my man happens to want a wine cave – so I’ll take it! And the area that we are expanding in the back just happens to be the perfect size for a wine cellar.

So –  we will dig – and the finished product will look something like this.

I didn’t realize how much fun this blog was going to be.

Going back and reliving so many of our memories has been a sweet and unexpected surprise.  Cheers!
