Lose yourself in these enchanting islands:

Just wanted to announce the publication of my new book Islands of Eden: St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which will be out November 14, 2014 (but you can pre-order it now: or or or from your favorite bookseller). It features breathtaking shots of these eastern Caribbean islands, from white sand beaches, to drool-worthy Vincentian dishes, to images of island life. There will be an upcoming special preview for Facebook fans! See more HERE.

When Time Stops

A sunset, before the night’s arrival, glistens over the gentle waters. Time seems to stop for the wonders of nature. Shadows beckon, but in this brief moment the silence grants serenity.

Happiness is a full cellar. I'm grinning ear to ear because our ideal location on the southwest slopes of Montalcino has allowed 80% of our Sangiovese grapes (for Brunello di Montalcino) to make it into the cellar - perfectly ripe and mature by Friday, Oct 4th afternoon. Just in time to beat the torrential rains of Saturday.

Amazing color; perfumes to die for; tannins, acidity and PH perfect. Many say it's the best Brunello vintage in the last 30 years.

The remaining 20%? Something for the birds in winter.

Thank you Patron Saint of Vintners, whoever you are!
