About Me

I decided to create this blog for stories that I want to share about food, wine and travel.

I am always out and about, always seeking the good and I'm always excited to share my favorite things about my hometown, Houston. 

Follow this blog as I travel around looking for the best here and elsewhere!

I've been the wine writer for Galveston Monthly magazine since 2012 as well as freelancing in other Houston publications.

      Dear Sandra,

      hope that you had a safe trip back to Houston.
      We wish to thank you very much for your visit at my winery on last Thursday.
      Me, my father Dino, my winemaker Claudio, my son Nicola and my agronomist Alfredo, we appreciated very much the time you spent with us visiting vineyards, winery and tasting our full range of wines.
      We mainly were very happy to be able to show you some old vintages…
      Please feel free to contact me anytime you wish.

      All the very best from Abruzzo and the Illuminati family,
