I had envisioned coming home to California for a month and touring the state doing wine club dinners and throwing events. The reality was, that I just got so busy with our house, peak Spring season and kids I just decided to dedicate my trip to catching up with friends and family instead. This was the best decision! I did manage to do a trial Wine Club member dinner at a neighbors house and after the success I am considering repeating it again in the winter months or next summer. Let me know if you would be interested in hosting a dinner while I would provide education and a traditional Piemontese meal!Have a look at what my dad and I served.
