Solage Calistoga's Executive Chef Brandon Sharp shares his passion for cooking, life and all things Napa Valley.

June 15, 2011

It was nuts here, rainy as could be.  Not a good thing, especially for the Meadowood golf course.

I cooked at Beth Nickel’s house at Far Niente, the gorgeous winery you can see about a mile off to the west of 29 as you drive north between Yountville and Oakville.  Storied Chardonnays and Cabernet.  I traded courses with Trevor Eliason, the winery chef.

Back at solbar it was business as usual, crazy numbers, a fun crowd, lots of bocce (in spite of the intermittent rain) but not a lot of poolgoers.

Lots of top-secret press goings-on here, stay tuned.  Hopefully you saw the generous piece in Wine Spectator’s June issue about solbar.

Ave atque vale, Macho Man.
