Shelter Co. Photo Shoot // 4/27/18
Our friends at Shelter Co. enlisted us to head out to an emerging property in the hills of Geyserville. Peak spring is a fitting time to attend a feast on a hilltop that overlooks all of the Sonoma Valley, and the perfect time for a photo shoot. We broke bread with the fantastic owners of the property, who were preparing for a cannabis and yoga retreat the following day. So in the spirit of this eclectic place, we brought our new mobile horse trailer bar, Miley, to the ranch for its inaugural cocktail mission. Our Derby Cocktail Co. beverage manager and Bon Vivant Eric Quilty brought some wonderful spirits from Singani 63, Jardesca and Mezcal Union for pre-dinner refreshments and led us through a traditional Mezcal tasting.
While dining with friends, our gazes were directed to where the 2017 wildfires savaged the region. Some of the torched trees still stood, while others showed signs of new growth. Out of fire comes renewal.
We were grateful to be in Sonoma sharing locally grown food and wine so we raised a glass of Cerf Club Caravane to give thanks to Sonoma, Valley of the Moon, indeed.
