Taste is Personal

July 13, 2016

Namaste, Laetitia Family!

June 29, 2016

Namaste, Laetitia family. Now that I’ve returned from my spiritual retreat in India, I thought I’d share five practices I connected with in relation to Laetitia. Hydrate. Needless to say, it was hot there, we were constantly thirsty for water—alas, there was no wine—we made do. Quenching my thirst made me reflect on the recent […]

June 14, 2016

On June 7th the Windy City was bustling! Conventions filled the city, jasmine scented it, the restaurants were crowded, there were concerts in Millennium Park, and the Art Institute was in action. All evidence that Chicago was doing its thing. For Laetitia, Chicago is a city that matters a lot. It’s a market full of […]

Uno, Duo, Trio and Quattro

May 4, 2016

A couple of years ago the Laetitia cellar became a think tank for brainstorming new ideas, one being that it would be really exciting to blend Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Grenache and Petite Sirah to create a new “Other” Red. We wanted to create a wine that would add our brand to the ‘Other Red’ category. […]

El Niño Agrees With Laetitia

March 23, 2016

Goodness what a difference one year makes. When I was at Laetitia last March, the landscape looked barren and bleak. This year, the vineyards are oozing with energy. The golden sun is reflected on the earth through yellow mustard seed growing everywhere. Wherever we looked we could see an abundance of grasses, weeds, new growth […]

The Party Gene By Nadia Zilkha

March 10, 2016

I have inherited the party gene from my parents. For as long as my mother in London has had email, she has been sending me photos of her dining room table set for numerous guests. Different floral arrangements and silver platters filled with chocolates adorn it in winter: and in the summer cherries make delicious […]
