Our favorite is by far the 1986 Riserva Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella. Brooke and I first discovered it in Carmel, at Little Napoli Restaurant. It is the best tasting red your palette will ever sample, that is of course if you can stomach paying $336/bottle.

We regulary go through a couple of $500 bottles of wine per day so $336 seems like a bargain to us. NOT! Yikes! I could have bought a GPS with that money!

It was our wedding anniversary...we celebrate it every 28th of the month, and our 740iL already has GPS, as does our Ram 3500.

...and I thought it a rose once a month to my wife was expensive! I gave her one each month for the first 8 or 9 years. It has been over 30 years from the last rose..........s'pose she has noticed? I think I will surprise her....with a GPS.

Of course... Champagne from FRANCE ( the name of Champagne is only authorised for sparkling wine made in this region of France... ).
My best souvenir in taste is the KRUG Champagne in "brut" version. very expensive now.
Just for you envy me , in a quater of an hour now, We're going to drink champagne for my "american wife" anniversary... 31....

Our favorite wines & an appertif

We like Kenwood, Sauvigion Blanc, great for sipping and not as heavy as a Chardonnay, which I prefer to blend with dinner. Trader Joes has some great buys and good wines which come from some super wineries around here. Castoro Winery in Paso Robles, Ca. distributes a lot of their wines to Trader Joes and it's very reasonable. Also, Wild Horse puts out some good ones.

On another note, if you like a heavier sort of before dinner appertiff, try "Lillet", it is lovely and has a higher alcohol content than a wine. We like the blanc, or white. It also comes in a rose. Imported from France.

Ofcourse they're all good!

Bruno,

Est-ce que ça fait 31 ans que vous êtes mariés, ou est-ce que votre femme a 31 ans? Vous avez tous les deux l'air d'être trop jeunes pour avoir été mariés 31 ans.

Frédéric

For the English speaking folks, I'm just wondering if there was a mistranslation....in French anniversary can translate to birthday, so I asked if Bruno's wife was 31 or if they had been married 31 years, because they both look too young to have been married that long.

Hi Fred;
Your english is too much perfect to not been french , may be in another life...
Yes, it's the age of Leïla, my wife, my american wife as I'm pleased to say because in France, we 're not legally married at this moment... Always waiting the transcription from USA. We get married on March of this year by ... Harley Davidson Motor company. Incredible but that 's true.

bruno.

Bruno,

Je suis Americain et Français. Ma tante Marcelle était professeur et, grace a elle et mon livre de Bled, je parle les deux langues. Ma grammère n'est pas le meilleur, mais je crois un peu mieux que d'autres Français! Je comprends aussi le Provençal, mais ça fait bien des années que je ne l'ai plus parlé.

Frederic

Translation: (don't want to be rude!)

I am American and French. My aunt Marcelle was a teacher and, thanks to her and my book "Bled" (the name of a grammer book), I speak both languages. My grammer isn't the best, but I think it's a bit better than some French people. I also understand Provencal (the old Southern French language closely related to Latin, Spanish and Italian...also referred to sometimes as Catalan), but it's been years since I've spoken it.

Hi freshair, I've just realised you though we were at our 31th years of marriage... we are just married and the cermony were organised by Harley Davidson... what an incredible story... we wanted just to be married at Daytona beach but circumstances have made us live really a dream story. If you don't know the story, have a look there:

Version traduite de la page http://www.american-dream-in-france.blogspot.com/

I've given you the link with english traduction .

At the end of the article , there is the video , except if you prefer to see it now:

Thank you
