Well, it’ Friday and that must mean a new four pack. The only catch is… no holidays to tie in this week, and has Spring really sprung…? How about those Sox? Pats? B’s? C’s? This proves what we have been saying all along: there really is no reason needed to enjoy a glass of your favorite grape with your favorite people. And while we’re waiting for the crocus to bloom and the mercury to rise, let’s enjoy buon cibo, buon vino e` buon amici – good food, good wine and good friends. Salut!
