Spicy Rioja

6:00 pm: After the storm, Oleana Snuck in to Oleana just after the storm when no one was on the roads. There are a few places that make me realize what a great town this can be and how grateful I am to live here. Oleana is one of them. The place was pretty empty due to the weather but we sat at the bar and had a drink first anyway. Sarah Marshall does an incredible job with the wines here and was pouring 17 year old Barolo by the glass. Any day. Annnny day. Thank you Sarah. I like to order a Cab Franc when I eat food with this much spice and...

Acha Vermouth

Acha Vermouth

My favorite way to make a party stand out is with the drink offerings. I’ve done my fair share of mixing chocolate martinis which can really tie you up as a host or making infusions.
