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.
