    Behind the Scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger Winery

      We went behind the scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger winery in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma, California where we learned a thing or two about organic farming from winemaker and vice president of production, Mike Brunson.

    VIDEO: Tailgating Tips

    Tailgating is one of our favorite fall activities. There’s something about meandering through large enthusiastic crowds with the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meats permeating the air that guarantees a good time. Even if you’re not particularly a fan of football, the experience is worthy of any bucket list.
