A short note to say hello from NYC where I judged the Sterling Vineyard’s 1st annual Ultimate Host Challenge along with 3 other fabulous writers/bloggers + Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi! It was an amazing event with four fabulously decorated wine parties that all deserved to win. We could only choose one however, and congratulations to Julie Hesson for her WINNING tablescape/party and $40,000! We are so excited about Julie’s upcoming trip to Napa.
I’m a bit under the weather but powering through my trip to NYC with lots of meetings, so if I owe you an email – hold tight! Thanks! For urgent issues, please email my editorial assistant Kelly Roach, thanks!
