A Toast to Tradition

The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of the year! The decorations, the music, the sweet, brisk air. It really is the most magical time of year.

It’s also a time full of tradition.

Our cover story, Laurenz Maria Moser V, has had a vibrant life full of Old World custom mixed with New World practice. He truly is an inspiring man.

Margrit Mondavi has left her mark on the wine world and has opened up her life to the world with her book, Margrit Mondavi’s Sketchbook: Reflections on Wine, Food, Art, Family, Romance and Life. An amazing read or gift for the holiday season.

And speaking of gifts and traditions, be sure to read our Holiday Gift Guide to help with your list and make a new tradition by making reservations to Meadowood’s 12 Days of Christmas dinners or visiting stunning Tuscany once the cold months have drifted away.

As for me, I’m looking forward to listening to my Dad read T’was the Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve. A family tradition since birth, we have never gone a year without it. Not even when my Dad suffered a heart attack and was stuck in the hospital on Christmas 13 years ago.

Maybe this year, “Santa” would enjoy a dessert wine with his cookies instead of a glass milk as a thank you for making the holidays so special.

So toast your family and traditions this year. They’re what make you, you.

Happy Holidays and Cheers!
