It just feels good to support a business conceived by such a pioneering and gracious family. Courtney and her "chief taster", husband Andy Pflaum, have been a wonderful, community-minded addition to the Ladera neighborhood. And the Kingston Family wines go down real smoothly too. Don't miss the dark cherry flavors of their Pinot Noir or the bright fruit of the Cariblanco Sauvignon Blanc --solid, delicious wines at reasonable prices. Which reminds me, I have a bottle of the '06 Tobiano Pinot Noir that has been waiting for a special occasion: Happy 4th of July!
