Custom Estates home perfectly paired with Reverie wines
March 09, 2012

What better place to showcase an ultra-premium winery than in a premier private Club community like Old Palm Golf Club? It happened recently when one of the residents in our Custom Estates neighborhood held a tasting of Reverie Wines in his home. The wine flowed freely, the hospitality was over the top, and our Club catered the affair with an extraordinary five-course meal. Reverie’s winemaker and owner, Norman Kiken was even there to talk about the Bordeaux-style varietals he produces in Napa Valley. Reverie makes nine different varietals, yet produces less than 3,000 cases per year. The wines are smooth, elegant and perfectly balanced with bold mountain flavors, as the winery is located on steep Diamond Mountain. They include a Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo and Roussanne, the only white varietal. The wines and the setting at Old Palm made for an unforgettable evening.

The latest selection for the Ladies Book Club was the best-selling book âHedyâs Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World.â While meeting recently over coffee and cookies in the Ladies Lounge in the Club, the group enjoyed a lively discussion about Lamarrâs incredible life story, which at times reads more like fiction than non-fiction Written by Richard Rhodes, the book tells how the Austrian-born Lamarr fled to America at the beginning of World War II to escape her Nazi arms dealer husband. Already an actress, Lamarr went on to become one of the most glamorous stars in Hollywood But whatâs really remarkable about her tale is that she had another highly usual talent. In 1942 Lamarr, who had a head for science, received a U.S. patent for co-inventing a radio-controlled âspread spectrumâ torpedo-guidance system to be…
