Posted: June 5, 2006  By James Laube

Posted: June 1, 2006  By James Laube

Ready for a Pope Valley appellation? I am. It’s long overdue. This remote valley in the northeast area of Napa County deserves its own identity, yet legally it’s part of Napa Valley, which has some huge benefits for Napa vintners.

Posted: May 25, 2006  By Harvey Steiman

Thomas Keller's newest restaurant, scheduled to open in July, is going to feature home cooking. At least for now. Keller expects to revamp the whole thing next spring.

Posted: May 22, 2006  By James Laube
