Persimmon Gingersnap Flips for a cozy morning. Er, evening. 😏 Up on the site. Meanwhile, we celebrated finishing up our grape season yesterday. We finally got all of the bird netting down!! 🍾🍾🍾 . . This recipe is one of my favorites so far this month. Its velvety texture and blend of flavors is so fitting with the season. Nutmeg, cinnamon, star anise, a pop of Cardamaro, and a DIY allspice dram recipe I’m in love with. . . We’re off to the big city {😜} of Grand Junction this morning for a pit stop at Bin 707 Foodbar, a few farm errands, and, hopefully, a Christmas tree. Hoping we can get the tree up and decorated by tonight!🎄I still can’t believe Christmas is a little over two weeks away. Still no presents. Still no cards. Is anyone else this far behind?? 😫 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #rscozy #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #howiholiday
Cocktails in mugs!! 🍹☕️ I’ve partnered with @winc to create a couple of wine-based holiday cocktails this month, and I’m sharing the “Sweater Weather Mule” tonight, a rye-forward riff on a gingery mule with apple cider and their Finke’s Widow sparkling wine. . . I am also sharing a code with you all to receive $22 off your first wine shipment with @winc ’s monthly wine club! Just enter HOLLYANDFLORA at checkout, and you’re good. Your holiday #cheersdelivered 🍷🍾🥂 . . If my dad were on Instagram, I’d totally call him out here. He would always drink his red wine out of a coffee mug. That way, no one would know what or how much he was sipping. So sneaky. And sooo on the naughty list, for sure. 😏 . . • 3/4 ounce rye whiskey • 3/4 ounce apple brandy • 1 1/2 ounces fresh apple cider • 1/2 honey syrup {equal parts honey and water} • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice • 1/4 ounce ginger liqueur • 2-3 ounces Finke’s Widow sparkling wine • apple slices, fresh sage, and cinnamon, for garnish . . 1. In a shaker tin, combine the whiskey, apple brandy, apple cider, honey syrup, lemon juice, and ginger liqueur. 2. Add ice and shake well. 3. Strain into a mug filled with ice. 4. Top with Finke’s Widow sparkling wine and garnish with a fresh sage sprig and an apple slice. 5. Lightly sprinkle cocktail with cinnamon. Simply fill a fine-mesh strainer with a little cinnamon and lightly tap it over the apple. . . . #partner #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #wine #winecocktails #sommlife #wineclub #foodwinewomen #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail

I’ve got Persimmon Gingersnap Flips and a recipe for an easy spiced persimmon purée. It’s the secret ingredient in this cocktail! All up on the blog this evening, along with some thoughts on creative resets this holiday season. . . Do you make, cook, or bake with persimmons? 🧡 I’m such a fan of the Fuyu variety. It’s earthy, delicately sweet, and much less tannic or astringent than the more common Hachiya variety. And sooo delicious in this rich, seasonal, almost egg nog-like cocktail. . . Link is in my profile☝🏼, so get after it while persimmon season is still here and thriving. Dried flowers brought to you by the talented @zephyrosfarmandgarden here in Paonia. 🥀🌻🌾 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #persimmons #selfcare
When you make a monthly trip to Whole Foods because you miss your city treats, and you score two bags of crushed ice from the cashier, you make tiki drinks, obvi! . . This one’s called, “The 39 Swizzle”, named after our 39th parallel here in Paonia. It’s a veryyyy loose interpretation of Jim McCourt of Prohibition in Charleston, South Carolina’s “The 56 Swizzle.” His features Jägermeister, lime juice, and orgeat, with fresh mint. . . Mine’s an Old Tom Gin and sage tiki cocktail. Layers on layers on layers of tropical and wintry flavors. It seems superfluous, but don’t neglect the final addition of Beaujolais on top, and if you don’t have any, another fruity, light-bodied red will do! Cheers, friends!! . . • 1 ounce @ransomspirits Old Tom gin • 1/2 ounce @lairdsapplejack • 1/4 ounce @amaromonte • 1/4 ounce @pierreferrandcognac dry curaçao • 1/2 ounce toasted pecan orgeat • 1/2 ounce ginger syrup • 1/4 ounce Rothman & Winter orchard apricot • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon • 1 1/2 ounces apple cider {I used @drinkbigbs drinkbigbs} • 2 dashes @scrappysbitters cardamom bitters • 2 dashes @mmbitters orange bitters • drizzle of Beaujolais • sage sprigs . . 1. In a mixing tin, muddle a few sage leaves with the orgeat. 2. Add the lemon juice and fill glass almost to the top of a tall glass. 3. Add the remaining ingredients and swizzle together until combined. 4. Top with more ice, drizzle with red wine, and garnish with a straw and a sprig of smacked sage. I also sneaked in some cinnamon on top, too. 😏 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #mypinterest #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #tikicocktails #drinkbigbs #ttcocktails
Doing a little persimmon cocktail testing and running outside to catch the last light on our nearly dormant vines. Also realizing that I’ll be in southern California two days from now. Thought I’d get some practice on some seasonally appropriate cocktails. . . This one is an añejo tequila and applejack combination with a spiced persimmon purée. I need to start an applejack fan page or something. I’ll be sharing the recipe soon. But first, a quick getaway to somewhere warmer. . . See you soon, @noshandnourish , @brewinghappiness , and @thismessisours !! 👋🏼 #newportbeachbound . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld
Happy {day after} Thanksgiving, friends!! 🍂 If you have any leftover pumpkin purée, you need to make these pumpkin pie cocktails with rum, amaro, coconut cream, and a spiced pumpkin syrup. They’re rimmed with a salty-sweet pepita crumble and are SO, so good. . . We drove back to Denver to spend a few days with family. We recharged {-ish}, over-indulged, visited some of our favorite spots, and baked homemade pumpkin pie. And even ran a turkey trot to kind of make up for it all. 🏃🏼‍♀️ . . Find the recipe in the archives by searching, “pumpkin pie martini.” . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #vegan #pumpkincocktail
I’m sharing a new post on the blog today, featuring these bittersweet cider spritzes, along with scenes and stories from the last few weeks of our grape harvest. Follow the direct link in my profile. . We are hustling to finish building a retaining wall this afternoon, putting a holiday playlist together, shopping for Thanksgiving ingredients, and packing for a quick trip back to Denver to celebrate with family. . It’s cocktails like this that save me. They’re batch-able, low ABV, and celebratory fizzy. Here’s hoping your holiday week is a cozy one, and one that doesn’t include building retaining walls or grass-seeding projects. 🙃 Happiest of Thanksgivings to you, friends!! Tell me how you’re celebrating! 🥂 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #thanksgiving #amaromontenegro #drinkbigbs
Ginger syrup is simmering on the stovetop right now, since I used the last of it in these bittersweet cider spritzes! It’s the one cocktail syrup, aside from simple, that I always keep on hand {recipe below}. . . We are about to reinoculate a stalled Chardonnay fermentation this evening 🤓, after a long afternoon of trench-digging for a new wall around the house. I’m so ready for a shower, a little writing session, and a cider. Or a shower cider ‘cause those are magical. . . Most ginger syrup recipes call for just water, sugar, and ginger. I learned a tip a while back when bartending with @readysetwasted {👋🏼 Chris!} which is to use citrus juice in the mix. It yields a much more interesting and complex syrup. . . • 1 orange, juiced • 1 grapefruit, juiced • 2 lemons, juiced • 1 cup water • 1 cup cane sugar • 1/2 cup unpeeled, coarsely chopped ginger root . . 1. In a sauce pan, bring all ingredients to a boil, stirring along the way, and reduce to a slow, low simmer. 2. Simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. 3. Remove from heat and let steep until completely cool. 4. Strain out the solids through a chinois or through cheesecloth and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. 5. You can even give the syrup a seasonal twist and add cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, or black peppercorns to the ingredient list. . . . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld @drinkbigbs #drinkbigbs #ciderlover
I’ll be sharing a fall spritz on the blog this week that can easily be made into a punch for Thanksgiving. It’s a low ABV apple cider sipper that features a favorite fall spirit of mine, Amaro Montenegro. 🍂 But first, can we talk ice molds? They’re so easy to make - just a bit of prep-work and some time in the freezer. I used a freezer-safe glass Pyrex bowl for this one, but you can get creative with your shapes. I’ve even used a small casserole dish or a mini bundt pan. 🍂 Fill your container with a few slices of seasonal fruits, sprigs of herbs, and complementary spices like star anise or cinnamon sticks. Fill with water, leaving just a little room at the top, and freeze at least 24 hours. 🍂 Once it’s frozen, carefully turn your dish or bowl upside down and run lukewarm water over it, gently releasing the ice. An eye-catching reward for basically effortless work. That’s what I’m going for this holiday. 😏 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #homebartender #cocktailsofinstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld
Our week has been filled with spreading compost, moving rocks, and sowing grass seed on our barren, dusty mesa. Riveting, no? Our goal is to once again tend a thriving garden, and this is a slow step one. 🌿 To celebrate, I made us some apple brandy cocktails and posed one on top of the rock wall we’re currently repairing. They’re cozy, balanced, and bright - and features one of my favorite fall spirits, applejack. 🌿 • 1/2 honeycrisp apple, coarsely chopped • 3/4 ounce apple brandy {I used @lairdsapplejack } • 3/4 ounce rye whiskey {I used @redemptionwhiskey } • 1/2 ounce @tamworth_distilling chicory liqueur • 1/4 ounce ginger liqueur {I used @newdealpdx } • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice • 1/4 ounce spiced pear simple • rosemary spring, for garnish 🌿 1. In a mixing tin, muddle the apple slices well. 2. Add the applejack, whiskey, chicory liqueur, ginger liqueur, lemon juice, and simple syrup. 3. Add ice and shake well. 4. Double-strain into a cocktail glass prepped with a large ice cube. 5. Garnish with a sprig of smacked rosemary. 🌿 I am putting the finishing touches on the photos for a grape harvest blog post {the first one since JULY 😳} this evening in between waiting for coats of paint to dry in our guest room. Remodeling is hard, especially since we just finished our last remodel this summer. Why do we do this to ourselves?! 🙃 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #thekitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #cocktailsofinstagram #homebartender #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld
These chilly fall evenings have gotten me making cozy soups on the regular. I made @theclevercarrot ’s creamy potato leek soup last night and poured a glass of one of my favorite weeknight Chardonnays for today’s #sharedandpaired post {swipe thru’ 👉🏼}. 🌿 I’m always looking for wines that taste beyond their price-point. For just under $15, the 2015 @charlessmithwines ’ “Eve” Chardonnay out of Washington State seriously delivers. It’s balanced, crisp and lively, and lightyears away from being an oak bomb. 🌿 I loved matching the wine’s pear and apple notes with Emilie’s simple, satisfying, earthy soup. I used some homemade veggie stock and made the recipe vegan by subbing cashew milk. I also tossed a little parsley oil on top for an herbal punch. 🌿 The only thing missing was a loaf of Emilie’s sourdough bread. She’s a sourdough guru, and everything I know about baking it is because of her. 💞 Next time. That requires a little planning, and that’s been rather hard lately. 😜 Find the recipe over on Emilie’s blog and search “potato leek soup.” Happy Thursday!! . . . #sharedandpaired #thirstythursday #wine #winepairing #foodwinewomen #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #chardonnay #charlessmithwines #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #thirsty #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #winestagram #winewednesday <— belated! 😜
Our Chardonnay babies are turning into WINE! We ended up making three kegs and one carboy of wine from the grapes we set aside this year. They’re all fermenting away and tasting GREAT! I haven’t messed it up yet! 🥂 Chardonnay gets a lot of flack for being boring or overdone with oak. I get that, but I also get that the grape can grow almost anywhere. That’s what can make it turn out both blasé or super unique. 🥂 It can be crisp or oaky, fruity or mineral-driven, still or bubbly, sweet or bone dry. For me, I love tasting Chardonnay grown in different regions. It’s a different wine every time. 🥂 I will add that my favorite way to drink Chardonnay is in a Blanc de Blancs Champagne. And if you’re being specific, I’ll take a @champagnepeters Les Chetillons 2008. A six-pack, pls. 😏 . . . #f52grams #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #wine #winestagram #foodwinewomen #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #chardonnay #westelksava #thestormcellarwinery #coloradowine #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld
Tonight’s experiment with a gifted bottle of aquavit from my friend, Marie, and her parents over at @azurapaonia was on POINT. 🍐 They gave me a bottle of O. P. Anderson that they’d picked up on a sailing trip in Sweden. I’d never tried it before, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite fall spirits. 🍐 It’s driven with notes of caraway, anise, fennel, dried apricot, and toasted nuts. It’s aged in oak for eight months, and it fits in perfectly with spiced pear simple and @breckdistillery Bitter. This will happen again very, very soon. 🍐 • 1 1/2 ounces O. P. Anderson aquavit • 3/4 ounce Breckenridge Bitter • 1/2 ounce spiced pear and vanilla simple • 1/4 ounce toasted almond orgeat • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon • 1/4 ounce ginger syrup • sliced pears with cinnamon and rosemary sprigs, for garnish 🍐 1. In a mixing tin, combine all of the ingredients, along with a few large ice cubes, and shake well. 2. Strain into a chilled coupe. 3. Garnish with a slice of pear and lightly dust with cinnamon, tapped through a sieve. Add a little spring of smacked rosemary, if you’re feeling an herbaceous vibe. 🍐 . . . #cocktails #aquavit #aquavitcocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #thekitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #thirsty
I’ve taken the past three weeks to “reset” since harvest ended, and it’s been completely worth the break. As soon as the last grapes were picked, I crashed HARD. 🍎 Today, I’m feeling a lot better and am getting back on some fall cocktail projects this afternoon. Sometimes you have to let nature smack you in the face to finally slow down. 🍎 I tend to be an all-or-nothing kind of person, which has its pluses and minuses. I’ve nixed coffee, alcohol, sugar, and animal products out over the past couple of weeks, and I feel recharged, well-rested, and in more control of my diet, as I’ve slowly reintroduced certain things back in. Moderation is so key. 😏 ...and let me tell you: that first sip of coffee feels so good! 🍎 I’m revisiting this favorite of mine, a honey crisp apple cocktail, with Old Tom gin, Pimm’s, ginger liqueur, lemon, honey-cinnamon syrup, and spiced orange bitters. These flavors are made to be together. 🍎 Find the recipe on my site {link is in my profile} and search “honeycrisp Pimm’s”. Happy Sunday and happy recharging and resetting. . . . #cocktails #thisisfall #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #abmhappyhour #f52grams #kitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld
I’m looking down into the neck of a glass carboy filled with freshly pressed Pinot Noir, along with a little Riesling and Chardonnay. We’re inoculating the juice tonight with yeast and seriously anticipating our very first, small-batch ROSÉ!! 🍇 We recently learned that parts of this vineyard were originally planted with Pinot Noir vines in the late 1980s, but they were ripped out and replaced with other white wine varieties. 🍇 A few rogue, own-rooted vines have survived over the years, so instead of lamenting their existence, we harvested their clusters and are making some garage wine with them! I’ve never made rosé before. This is so exciting!! 🍇 I’ll keep you posted on how it progresses. My favorite thing to do right now is to sit inside our cold fermentation room and place my ear to the kegs and listen to all of the fermenting grape juice. Happy bubbles, happy place. Can’t wait to see how this turns out!! . . . #wine #rosé #roséallday #foodwinewomen #drinkpink #thestormcellarwinery #westernslope #westelksava #vineyardlife #farmlife #sunshinemesa #winelove #redstonevineyard #howisummer #colorado #🍇#paonia #coloradowine #hollyandflora #pinotnoir #garagewine #thestormcellarwinery #thehiveatthestormcellar
Cozy fall vibes tonight, including the requisite bonfire. 🍂 We took down six rows of bird netting out in the vineyard this morning and collected a solid handful of old vine wood. And now it’s time to celebrate!! 🍐 A round of these Spiced Pear Old Fashioneds, along with a blazing fire, and I’m good for the night. Well, almost. We just started watching season one of Twin Peaks: The Return, and I’m already in binge-watch mode. {I’ll have to make a cherry pie cocktail for you one of these days, @kyle_maclachlan !! 😜} 🍐 For the cocktail, combine the following ingredients, along with a few large ice cubes, in a mixing glass and stir well: • 2 ounce bourbon {I went with @eaglerarelife tonight} • 1/2 ounce spiced pear syrup {see notes below} • 1-2 dashes @mmbitters toasted pecan bitters 🍐 The spiced pear syrup is super simple. In a saucepan, combine equal parts sugar and water. I went with 1/2 cup of each. Add one coarsely chopped pear, one cinnamon stick, a couple cloves, and a star anise to the pan. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring along the way, until the pear is tender, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let the ingredients sit until cool and then strain. Store in the fridge for up to a week. Put in all of the fall cocktails. 🍐 HAPPIEST OF FRIDAYS!!! And an update: the bonfire can’t happen. The wind picked up, and it’s starting to rain! Guess it’s a Twin Peaks all-nighter. No complaints here, though. 😏 . . . #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #thekitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #thisisfall #pearcocktail #tastybev
I decided to experiment with some of the leftover roasted squash purée from a post a few days back. Have you had success with squash cocktails? Sometimes the texture just isn’t right, or it comes out too vegetal. 🥃 Last year, I made a rum-based cocktail with coconut cream that was richly textured and delicious. You can find it over on my site {just search “pumpkin.”}. So, here goes a riff on a Sidecar. This one’s called, “I Call Shotgun”! 🥃 I was pretty pleased with the result. It is brandy-forward, and the squash lends a savory, toasty note. The walnut liqueur and citrusy Licor 43 pull it all together with balance. Just make sure your cinnamon-sugar rim is only lightly “kissed” with cinnamon. It can leave a chalky texture in your mouth, if overdone. . . . • 1 1/2 ounces roasted butternut squash purée • 3/4 ounce Calvados • 3/4 ounce Cognac • 1/4 ounce @licor43global • 1 bar spoon @hausalpenz Nux Alpina walnut liqueur • 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice • 1/2 ounce honey simple • cinnamon-sugar rim • dehydrated apple slice, for garnish {we got ours from @drinkbigbs } . . . 1️⃣ Rim a coupe glass with cinnamon sugar. 2️⃣ Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin, except for the cinnamon-sugar and apple slice, of course. 3️⃣ Add a few large ice cubes and shake very well. 4️⃣ Double-strain into prepped glass and garnish with apple slice. . . . #squash #squashcocktail #cocktails #feedfeed @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.cocktails #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #abmhappyhour #f52grams #thekitchn #sommlife #drinkstagram #imbibegram #tastybev #happyhourclub #foodblogfeed #saveurmag #craftcocktails #thirsty #liqpic #hollyandflora #dailycocktail #eattheworld #drinkbigbs
My heart is full today, and so is my glass. 🥂 We just picked the very last of our grapes yesterday. 15 tons of fruit, overall. I can’t even begin to process all that’s happened out here over the last six months. 🍷 I couldn’t have made this dream of mine and @big_zen ’s a reality and done this crazy grape-growing and wine-making project without the help and 💞 from our team, volunteers, crew, visitors, and online cheerleading team. 🍷 I’m going to treat myself to a massage and a little bubbly and shake off the past three 14-hour workdays. Cheers to @thestormcellarwinery ’s very first harvest!! Even though our yield was less than half of what we expected, you can seriously taste the love in those grapes. 🍷 And while we might be celebrating, we are also sending out our thoughts and prayers to those affected by the ongoing, devastating wildfires out in California. I’ve linked to @napavalleycf ’s donation site in my profile, so that you can join me in supporting the families, business owners, wineries, animals, and unaccounted-for members of the Napa and Sonoma wine-making regions. 🍷 And thanks to @brewinghappiness for this capture of me in the wild. Love you, babe! 📷 . . .
