Congratulations to Todd Duplechan (above), chef de cuisine, Trio at the Four Seasons, Austin, who recently appeared on the cover of Tribeza magazine! Produttori del Barbaresco 2007 Langhe Nebbiolo by the glass at Trio goes excellently with your Spiced Pork Chop with Muscat Grape Chutney (pick up issue number 94 for the recipe).

food_and_wineCongratulations are also due to Doug and Lori Horn, owners of Dough Pizzeria in San Antonio, who have been dubbed “new pizza artisans” by Food and Wine Magazine (June issue)!

“Doug and Lori Horn are the best kind of pizza makers,” writes Pat Sharpe of Food and Wine, “total fanatics… Dough makes Neapolitan pies with thin, crackly crusts anda ll manner of Italian meats and cheeses.”

Last time we visited you, the Argiano 2006 Rosso di Montalcino paired beautifully with your pizzas, especially the caramelized red onion and roast mushroom (pictured below). Thank you again for your continued support!


Congratulations Mark!
