A DAY IN AN AMERICAN LIFE 

La Ciotat to Denver

On est atterri ! We made it to my sister's in Denver and, after a home-cooked meal (thanks Heidi) of grilled chicken, taboulé, and du mesclun, extra câlins from my niece and nephew, and a good night's rest (rocked to sleep by Colorado cricket song!), we are revigorés and ready for today's wine dégustation over at The Vineyard Wine Shop. It's Denver's oldest wine store and today they'll be featuring Domaine du Banneret (Jean-Marc's uncle's wine) as well as another vineyard close to my husband's heart: La Mascaronne.

Chief Grape tells me there will be du monde, so if things get crowded please do not leave without at least saying un petit coucou. We would not want to miss any one of you! 🌞 

I will post a photo on my Instagram, veuillez nous suivre la-bas ? 

Mille mercis et peut-être à tout-de-suite, 

Kristi
