In my view, hers is one of the most dynamic voices in American wine today.

She revealed to me that she and Raj Parr are bringing the controversial In Pursuit of Balance festival to Houston next year. It’s another sign that Houston is becoming one of the leading wine destinations in the U.S.

The festival and the new stop on its tour are the topics for my post today for the Houston Press.

Last weekend friends from Holland came to Rome and we took them on an excursion to Latina. I think Natasha’s photo sums up a Lazio experience. Culture, wine, food and fun.
