This evening, Vinomaker and I enjoyed the company of my co-workers and friends at Brix in Yountville. Good company, good food, good wine (and a fun mealtime game of passing a novelty gift to your table-mate on the right after each course), were shared by one and all. This bricks and mortar restaurant, that at any other time of the year is merely a place to grab a bite to eat, tonight became not just a building but the physical embodiment of the Christmas spirit. A good time was had by all.
Merry Christmas to all my co-workers!
