Where December came from is a mystery to me. Seems like each day darts by at unreasonable speeds, holding on is nothing short of a miracle. Right now needs to be slow, quiet, but acute. I chose photographer Janine Donston’s Fog for this month because it truly embodies the “right now.”

For our holiday collection, I chose wines that have not been in the spotlight lately, in fact, although all of these wines have been around for a collective many hundreds of years, I bet you never knew they existed. This is a collection that truly embodies a slowing down, to relish the present while treasuring the past. And I would imagine providing a Manzanilla Sherry and a Tokaji is a little mind-blowing – definitely was for us–A true holiday offering for our cherished clients!

Our highlighted winery, Ferrari Trento, is the best of what bubbles can offer, producing sparkling wine in the stunning, mountainous region of Trentino, Italy. But I’ll let our guest writers, Robin Shreeves and Joanie Karapetian introduce you…
