Chilean Wine Trailblazers
Chilean Wine picture Two more Chilean producers are featured: Vina Tarapaca and Vina Carmen. Both wineries have been around for a long time, but both have rejuvinated themselves with exciting facilities, new grapes, and talented young winemakers.

Carmen features the talents of Alvaro Espinoza and his passion for organic farming.

Tarapaca has tapped the expertise of Sergio Correa who has his eye on Rhone grape varietals making a name in Chile.

We're in the middle of the harvest at Carmen and in some of the most beautiful scenery around at Tarapaca. Either way, it's a winner.

Island Hopping
Maui picture Back to Maui for more incredible restaurants: Mama's Fish House, The Raw Experience, The Plantation House, The Hyatt-Regency-Maui, and an organic farmer's market.

Honestly, some of the best food I've eaten in some of the most beautiful settings I've seen.

San Francisco Treats
Ritz Carlton in San Francisco A profile of some of the city's finest eateries: The Dining Room at The Ritz Carlton, The Waterfront, Aqua, Farralon, The Slanted Door, and a tour of gourmet choclatier Scharffenberger Chocolates.

A Slice of Sonoma
Sanoma Wine Map We know Sonoma for growing great grapes and making great wine, but it's also a great place for raw products and terrific restaurants.

Bay Oysters actually farm their oysters in neighboring Marin County, but they call Sonoma home. We head out on the water to visit their oyster farm first-hand. Then, we travel to John Ash & Company, perhaps Sonoma's best-known restaurant. Lastly, we feature the empire that is Kendall-Jackson. We'll chat with their chief winemaker, visit the vineyards, pair some food with their wines, and tour their one-of-a-kind sensory garden.
