On the Road Again…

Welcome to binNotes | redThread™

Inspired stories about artisan wine and taste makers.

by L.M. Archer FWS, Bourgogne ML

binNotes | Red Thread™ is on the road again crafting bespoke interviews with artisan wine maker and culinary luminaries worldwide.

Here’s a peek at my recent trip to Napa for the CANVAS (Concierge Alliance of Napa Valley and Sonoma) unveiling of their new consumer website


Spoiler alert: I’m a guest contributor – including my recent interview with Patz & Hall wine maker James Hall.

So many cool features on this site, including virtual tours of wineries, hotels, resorts, vineyards – plus a build-your-own-itinerary sharable on social media.

I encourage you to give it a test-drive.

Warning: Pairs well over a glass of wine….highly addictive!

Kudos to Colby Smith, tireless Queen of CANVAS, for the opportunity to collaborate with this amazing community of “professional recommenders.”
