Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 2.31.09 PMWe began this week with our own Francesco Vigorito on Aspen television station Aspen 82’s television show The Lift talking about Italian Wine Merchants, Italian wine and Cupano Brunello. We ended the week with David Bertot’s flawless pairing of a California Cabernet and a juicy porterhouse steak. In between, John Camacho Vidal enjoyed a delicious under $28 artisanal Dolcetto and Julia Punj poured another amazing cocktail–an Italian twist on the French 75! It’s all in the service of living beautifully, deliciously and stylishly–and bringing a little bit of Italy’s La Dolce Vita to America.

Our Experts took a similarly cosmopolitan twist. David Gwo saluted Josko Gravner, Friuli’s most iconoclastic producer, with a pair of Gravner’s Anfora wines. Crystal went to California for her white wine selections from Kistler and Sine Qua Non. And Robin Kelley O’Connor hearkened back to his Bordeaux roots with choices of a Sauternes from Château Rieussec, and a Saint-Émilion from Château Bélair-Monange.

Cheers to you and to living well. It’s more than the best revenge; it’s gift you give yourself.
