Advice is given to use by many people in our lives. Our parents, our teachers, our mentors, friends and strangers can share a few words that can impact us for ever. Perhaps these are words we heed on a daily basis or we try to integrate into our lifestyle. What advice do you carry with you? In my recent column in the Napa Valley Register I shared some of the advice that winemakers have shared with me when interviewing them for the Wine Soundtrack podcast. Perhaps you have been given some of the same advice or perhaps some of these words will inspire you. Either way, may this be a wonderful new year! ************** When I was a little girl, my mom said something to me that I would never forget. I was nervous about going to a party and whether I would know people and have fun. She told me that you make your own good time. I could go with a negative attitude and would likely not have fun. Or I could go with a positive attitude and see what would happen.
This advice is something that I have carried with me throughout my life, and I approach everything I do with a positive attitude and an open mind.
You may not think of Los Angeles as one of the wine producing areas in California but there is a long history in LA and producers such as Angeleno Wine Company, Byron Blatty Wines and Cavaletti Vineyards are bringing wine production back to LA. They are the new wine pioneers of Los Angeles and I wrote about them in a recent column in the Napa Valley Register, which you can read below.
Long before congested freeways and millions of residents, Los Angeles was once part of California’s largest wine- producing region, the Los Angeles Viticultural District, which comprised the counties of San Luis Obispo, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Imperial, Riverside and San Bernardino.
In the 1700s, the pueblo of Los Angeles was home to the first commercial vineyards. The wine industry continued to flourish as immigrants arrived and saw the potential in the warm, dry climate.
