Sometimes I get the feeling that here's a monster in my closet.

A rare and much-needed moment of calm after an unbelievable couple of weeks. Thanks to @kippramsey for the killer lunch. #napa #napastrong #winemaking

During a soul-crushing week of tragedy, we have been working almost around the clock trying to save what we can. It feels very strange to put your head down and work while your community burns, but I will hold on to this special text we got last night from @kv_wines for a long time. "I think about wine past, present and future and today we are working for the future. When it’s 2019 and the current release is the ‘17, and you didn’t run away, and you stayed, and you worked it through because you have passion and heart and you have people’s entire livelihoods in your hands and being present....you can say I did my best that year and stayed and made wine the best I possibly could. It isn’t the winemaker who ever makes the wine. It is made by everyone with red hands and wet boots on the cellar floor. Hold your heads high because my friends the beers will taste a lot better in about 14 days...." @1111wines
Currently exhausted (physically, emotionally, and mentally), but feeling very grateful for the brave people on the front lines keeping us safe. Grateful to be safe when so many aren't. And always grateful for @_allisonwatkins who will always be my inspiration to always fight through whatever challenges come my way.
Emergency pick before the smoke overwhelms. We don't have long. #napa #atlasfire
We live in communities, have relationships/partnerships, create and get involved in organizations, religious institutions and causes because we all know that our meaning as an individual is enhanced and strengthened when we engage with others. I am deeply thankful to the first responders and firefighters, the #napa community, and our friends in the wine community and the art community for being so supportive in the last couple days. Our losses may not be equitable, but we are all in this together. The days ahead will be tough, but together we will be strong.
One of my favorite records is now on wax thanks to @secretlycanadian. So many amazing songs putting the world back in perspective. Bless you @jamilawoods.
Just your periodic reminder that "Weak" by @officialswv is one of the great songs of our generation. Does it for me every time. Link in bio. #swv #tuesdaynightjams #swvweak
Tasting through the 3 Mountain Tides wines from 2017, and the Clements Hills from 2016! Lots to be excited about!

Can't stop thinking about the life and legacy of Charles Bradley. I'm heartbroken that he's gone, but so uplifted that the world found his light before it went out. Please don't ever stop trying to find a way to shine the very specific light inside of you. It might just be exactly what we need. In what has been the hardest year of my life to get through, his music has often brought me joy and the hope of overcoming. You never know what kind of darkness your specific light can dispel. Rest In Power Soul Brother Number One! #charlesbradley
[Crockodile Dundee voice] "Now that's a cluster!" The last pick for Mountain Tides is in. Very excited.
Happy Birthday to my one true love. I am constantly floored by your strength, resilience, compassion, and drive. It's a genuine and humbling daily joy to get to be your person.
