What is your favorite food and wine pairing?
It's a tough choice between Wild Mushroom Risotto or Steak au Poivre and Phifer Pavitt Cabernet.
 
If you had unexpected guests coming in an hour, what is your go to meal? 
I am an avid gardener so I'm fortunate to be able to turn to my vegetable and fruit garden for inspiration. It's wonderful to live in California and cook seasonally with all that Mother Nature provides.
 
What are the favorite places you have visited?
My last trip to Hong Kong and Bali were spectacular but I must admit, I am smitten with the Napa Valley and its splendor.
 
What is the favorite wine you produced? 
That's akin to asking which shoes are my favorite or which child I favor.  I love them all -- just differently.  We produce two of my favorite varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
 
What woman has inspired you? 
The Napa Valley is home to a plethora of creative, philanthropic, business minded women. I am fortunate to be surrounded by incredible women on a daily basis that inspire me..... and my Mom. She went to Nursing School while raising 4 children; I still don't know how she did it.
