Scenes from California and Texas 2017

Last month, Giovanni visited Southern California and Southeast and Central Texas where he showed Arcari + Danesi and SoloUva wines. Here are some scenes from his trip…

The weather in La Jolla “by the sea” was beautiful. That’s the famous Scripps Children’s Pool.

Our friends at Jaynes Gastropub in San Diego hosted a wonderful event for us. It was the kick-off of our new North American campaign. That’s the awesome “Jaynes Burger.” The food is so spot-on at Jaynes…

We caught a couple of great sets that night after the event, including the Reverend Shawn Amos (above) and Grey Boy Allstars (also amazing).

The excellent Los Angeles wine shop Lou now carries SoloUva! Great shop, great folks… Lou’s e-letter is a must read (sign up on his landing page)…

Then it was off to Texas where Arcari + Danesi and SoloUva are now imported and distributed by Rootstock. That’s founder and owner Ian McCaffery (left) at a tasting at Bufalina, Austin’s coolest pizzeria (awesome wine list, too).

Great meal and great wine list also at Lenoir, one of Austin’s most innovative and creative kitchens. Super cool vibe and awesome wine list.

No trip to Austin is complete without some serious ‘cue at Stiles Switch (our favorite).

And of course, no trip to Texas is complete without a little bit of honky tonking. That’s the Dale Watson at the Broken Spoke, one of the last classic Texan dance halls.
