Enormous thanks and kudos go to the team at Campton Place—Richard Dean, Srijith Gopinathan, Rahul Nair & colleagues—for a once-in-a-lifetime evening this past Tuesday. One element you can re-create at home with a Smith-Madrone Cabernet would be the cheese course—two raw cow’s milk cheeses, Mahon Reserve from Minorca, Spain and Pleasant Ridge Reserve from Wisconsin. Five vintages of Riesling, five vintages of Chardonnay, six vintages of Cabernet…and Stu and Charlie to narrate through all that largesse!
Julie Ann Kodmur is a second-generation Californian who was born in San Francisco and grew up in La Jolla. As an eighth grader she was the runner-up in the state spelling bee. She’s lived in Italy and New York and now lives in the Napa Valley with her family. She is a marketing and publicity consultant in the wine industry. Her business life can be seen at http://www.julieannkodmur.com. This is the home for the overflow. The ‘title’ is a reference to a sculpture honoring an Argentinean journalist who practiced his craft in the 1930s before literally dying for his words. No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
