Tamber Bey is the way

Nestled on Sundance Ranch in Calistoga, Tamber Bey brings on a serene smile when you drive up the road lined with horses roaming on the world-class, 22-acre grounds. It’s an ultra premium winery that is also an equestrian facility dedicated to top performance horses, along with a safe haven for rescued horses.

Tamber Bey’s wine portfolio includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and many other wines, including estate-grown, single-vineyard-designated varietals and fantastic Bordeaux-style blends. Winemaker Andy Jones, a Thomas Brown protégé, leads in crafting the flavors of each wine, with Thomas as the consulting winemaker.

You’ll need to schedule a wine tasting with them in advance, as they only take reservations via phone or online by selecting from either a “Vineyard Tasting Menu” or the “Signature Tasting Menu,” both tasting menu includes five different wines.I went with the Vineyard Tasting Menu and was pleasantly impressed with their wines. The Vineyard Menu included a 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, a 2018 Chardonnay, a 2019 Rose, a 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2017 Rabicano. Of the five, the Chardonnay, Rose and Rabicano were my favorites. I ended up leaving with nine bottles of wine.

Masks are required on the premises except when you’re sipping on their delightful wines. You’ll check in inside at their tasting room but will then be led outside to enjoy your wines outside. Robert was our sommelier and was very knowledgeable, down to earth and kind. He took me around the property to meet some of the horses and I have to admit, the horses added to the magic to the whole wine experience in Calistoga.

Tamber Bey truly is like nothing else in Napa Valley, I would even consider it a hidden gem. I will definitely be coming back and bringing friends along to share the experience with and will be recommending it to friends visiting the area.

Their wines are pleasantly delicious and crafted with exquisite care that you can taste. It’s a winery definitely worth a visit to enjoy the stunning property, sip on some fine wines, and mingle with friends and horses.

Brimming with nostalgia

Goorin Bros. Summer 2020 Campaign.

Shot just before we all knew we were going into the COVID SIP. Already now almost three months later, I can honestly say how much I miss creating content without necessary limitations and restrictions of COVID. I truly miss the creative team (shoutouts to Glenn, Keith, John Ross, and Nicole) at Goorin Bros. and the amazing times inside and outside of the Goorin photo studio. Shooting and creating content for all the Goorin Bros. marketing campaigns for the past two years has been such a memorable experience.

the art of tea

Most people have their cup or four of coffee a day, and we have our tea to give us our sweet smiles 🙂

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Thao Tea Company on their brand launch by doing some lifestyle and product photos. The branding, packaging and identity was designed by one of our talented wedding clients, Thuy, who was so sweet to refer us. Much love out to her, the lovely ladies at Thao Tea and to tea.

holiday goodies

With the holidays fast approaching, we were a little inspired for our holiday goodie list when we stopped by Curator on Church Street in San Francisco for some photos for  Nudgit.

Pictured above is some of Dram‘s artisan bitters. Their “Hair of the Dog” caught our eye because if you don’t know already, it’s a colloquial expression referred to alcohol that is consumed with the aim of lessening the effects of a hangover. Clever right?

d2Saipua is based out of Brooklyn, NYC. Not only do they make wonderful aromatic soaps, but they’ve also got a talented flower team to style flowers for all occasions.
