Growing up, my parents had a great love for all things Italian. Partly because of my mother's Italian background and my father's love for fine wine. They envisioned a beautiful Italian home where famous designer, Michael Lane drew a sketch of what the home should look like. This drawing hung above the kitchen table as a kid and has always represented to me that dreams can come true if you make them happen. And that is exactly what my parents did. Now 30 something years later, I have been lucky enough to photograph my visions at the home they created. The Italian stone work and potted lemon trees made a perfect backdrop for this Summer Wine Tasting Party. Master Sommelier, Jefferey Perisho gives us advice on wines to serve and how to pair wine with Italian recipes.
The table is set with all my favorite dishes, glassware, and linens from Crate & Barrel. Head over to the Crate & Barrel blog to get the recipes and wine tasting tips for your next summer party. CLICK HERE
