MidSummer Night magic: a visit to Tres Sabores with Project B


It's kind of amazing how tiny moments and exchanges can align like stars to create something magic...

I got a phone call from someone looking for help with their home. I met with her and jumped right into moving things around to bring her family time and favorite things together... we have a wonderful conversation and next thing you know we're talking about dance, my brother and her friend, Tanya Bello, the Artistic Director at Project B. Dance...

and next thing you know, I'm walking up the path of Tres Sabores Winery in Rutherford, California to this magnificent scene...

Dancers from Project B. on platforms in the vineyard...

and on the hillside...

and emerging from the underground cellar with a parachute.

All of this is set to enchanting music that floats over the vines and around the trees as we follow the dancers up a path to a sprawling old oak tree...

for one last magical dance.Then we make our way to the table of Julie Johnson, owner of Tres Sabores winery, and her husband and wine consultant, Jon Engleskirger, for an indelible offering of local foods grown, raised, and gathered right here. We feasted on Guinea Hen, root vegetables, tomatoes and the most delicious plums I've ever eaten.

All of this prepared by Michelin-trained Chef, Daniel Brooks, and his devoted team...

ah, the sweet sweet life...

Thank you, Leila, Tanya, Julie & Jon, Daniel, Stephen, Vilte, Tristan, Kelly, Lindsey, Norma, Chin-chin, Mei-ling, Katherine, Ashley, Seth, Anna, Arturo, Jamielyn, and so many more for a midsummer evening for fairytales and fantasy.

Stay tuned for my next Color in the City, Rutherford- of course!
