We are a husband and wife team. Those who know us call us Michael and Strada. Variations include Geronimo and Stradamo. We respond to either. “Hey you!” will suffice, as well.
One day, a few years ago, we woke up in a major East Coast city and realized that our lives had drifted off course. Instead of nurturing the social and personal connections that had long sustained us, we had placed all our value in professional endeavors. We were, we realized, rapidly becoming one-dimensional caricatures of ourselves.
Recognizing that this was far from our dream, we posed a very important question: “What do we want with our lives?” Seemingly complicated question. Amazingly straightforward answer. Ultimately it came down to three words: wine country simplicity. With the eagerness of youth (and under the pretense of adulthood), we took the leap. Napa Valley or bust, y’all.
As California natives, we are passionate about family, friends, food, wine, travel, laughter, music, and the outdoors. We crave connection. We love engagement. And we never shirk from a new adventure.
We sing. We dance. We learn. We have fun. And not too long ago, we even made a child. Our time is a bit more limited these days, so when we have a free moment, we still like to get out there and get after it. No pretenses. No elitism.
One of us has an MBA, one has an MPA. But the specifics of this aren’t important. It’s our passion for life and wine that is the driving force behind all of this.
Join us as we uncover all that the bounty of wine and – well – life has to offer, one glass at a time.
‘Cause that’s how we roll…
