Dear Friends,

Autumn, our favorite season, has arrived. That wonderful period between the family days of summer and the holidays when we enjoy and celebrate our friends. Fun and interesting weather as well: the sunshine, the wind, the rain and the blowing leaves – sometimes in the course of a single day!

Speaking of favorites, we have one returning for a two time encore… our Wine & Dine Series, featuring Spain in November and Tuscany in December.

Happy Halloween!

Wishing you the best,

Peter and Cecilia Rait
