Sipping Sonoma

Welcome to a wine lover’s paradise that really opens up.
Timber Cove Resort
Sonoma County Tourism

About two hours’ drive north of San Francisco is Sonoma County. This parcel of paradise South of Mendocino, North of Marin and East of Napa has the distinct privilege of spanning picturesque countryside that encompasses redwoods, rivers and rocky coast. When you visit you will be entranced by the county’s physical beauty and also by its bountiful produce, friendly residents, and multifarious attractions that encompass dining, wining and exploring. This is in many ways the best of California: sun, sea, mountains, forests, and people— many of them artists and alternative souls who care about the provenance of things and their place in the world. My visit coincided with the community bouncing back from the wildires and I learned that people had come together and made renewal possible through their love of and loyalty to the environment and each other. After my visit I could see why!

Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Garden

Kendall-Jackson Wines are wellknown in America, especially their sophisticated varietals which encompass everything from chardonnay to zinfandel. But something you might not know about the estate: food is also a main attraction. Featuring produce from the culinary gardens onsite, the famous “K-J” holds an annual heirloom tomato festival, and offers seasonal farm-to-table dinner series with wine pairings. I was delighted to sample a superb meal, think beef short rib pasta with spigarello and midnight noon cheese paired with a glass of 2014 Jackson Estate Trace Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon. See, it’s not all about the Chardonnay and Pinot. But it can be if you want. (kj.com)

About Curve

One of the most direct ways to be authentic is to demand visibility, and one of the most immediate ways to achieve that is through personal style. Fashion is an increasingly important form of expression for queer women. Recently, Nats Getty, a high-profile artist and LGBTQ rights activist—and the out-and-proud heir to the Getty fortune—launched her own label, Strike Oil. When I met Nats in New York she told me the motto of the label was Rise Early, Work Hard, Strike Oil. It’s a saying from the man who built the Getty empire, but Nats has repurposed it as a mantra for what she refers to as “the differents”—those of us who never truly fit in. Resourcefulness is, no doubt, a road to reward, but for Nats, and for so many of us, our sense of personal advancement is tied to the broader LGBTQ community. Strike Oil, with its colorful, street-inspired designs, channels Nat’s rebelliousness to help build a platform for LGBTQ individuals and to send a message to us to wear our identities proudly. So this spring, I hope you go out there and “strike oil” in whatever aspect of your life needs it the most..
