Amy Atwood is one of my favorite LA wine people. Why? Other than the fact that’s she’s purrrrty and real nice? She distributes some damn good wine here in California. A lot of the wine I buy and drink on a regular basis are wines that she selects/represents. She’s fighting the good fight, people!

If you could travel to one region of the world right now for its food and/or drink where would you go? Back to Galicia where I was last summer, for the amazingly fresh seafood and bowls of local white wine. (see photo below)
What’s for sipper? Today I am making Fabada Asturiana (a hearty white bean stew with salt pork and morcilla) so it will be a rustic red wine from the Languedoc.
PS- BOWLS of white wine. Them Spaniards never cease to amaze me.
