Last night we had a delightful dinner with Wes Malvini, among other things, now working for Idaho’s Bounty. Wes has been marketing director for Holesinsky Winery and Davis Creek Winery (both wineries in Idaho), film maker, writer, author, wine maker and vineyard manager. He has been busy! It was great to have Wes over for dinner and to talk to him about his achievements and future endeavors. Here is what we had for dinner. The photo to the left is the table setting Robin created. Enjoy!
