It has been quite a week here in Madrona with talk of Corona overshadowing the Super Tuesday results. But we made it to the weekend. Sunday, we set the clocks ahead an hour, and there are signs of Spring in the garden. It is time to have a glass of wine and we have some good ones lined up to sample. We also have a new art by Paul Lockhart up on Sunday — more details below. Here’s what’s going on.
Saturday, we have wine from one of our favorite Piedmont producers, Podere Ruggeri Corsini. They are all great values.
