For many years, I enjoyed a  delightful correspondence with Julia, in which she encouraged me in the early years of my career. Several times, during Julia's visits to the SF Bay Area, I had the  honor of assisting her at her book signings. (The lines of people always went out the door!)

Welcome back, my friends – and Happy Drink Wine With Dinner® Month! So, what’s that all about?

Well, if the above header is any guide, August promises to be a jam-packed month – with non-stop food, wine and fun – and we have the Queen of Cuisine to thank for it!

A few years ago I decided to honor my wonderful mentor, Julia Child, with a unique holiday on her August 15th birthday.

I’d enjoyed a delightful “snail mail” correspondence with Julia, helped her at several of her book signings here in California, and reveled through the years in her company – and her inimitable joie de vivre – at Bay Area food-and-wine events.

Merlot is a classic, traditional partner for duck.

Merlot with duck for Drink Wine With Dinner® Day – a delicious tradition.

That’s how Drink Wine With Dinner® Day started – and since then, all of August has become Drink Wine With Dinner® Month.

(After all, at six foot two – and with her larger-than-life personality – Julia deserves way more than just one day! Don’t you agree?)

Just read on, to find out how you too can get in on all the fun and flavor of Drink Wine With Dinner® Day, plus all of Drink Wine With Dinner® Month!
