Bernards Inn Garden Ready for Planting
Bernards Inn Garden Ready for Planting Spring in New Jersey is an amazing time. Trees are in full bloom, ramps are popping up by the river beds, and it is time to get The Bernards Inn garden planned and planted. One of the great things about being a chef and living in New Jersey is enjoying the four seasons. I love the fact that we can experience all of them and each one is so very different. It was disappointing to have such a mild winter, as I love to spend time with my wife and kids in the mountains snowboarding.

I have met his sister Marci, but was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Tim. Tim and his sister Marci Mondavi Borger are the forces behind Continuum Estate, a small artisan winery in the Napa Valley. They have a single focus--to produce only one wine—Continuum Red, Pritchard Hill. Tim was recently featured on the front cover of Wine Spectator Magazine, along with the headline: “One Wine, One Purpose.” Tim explained that the Continuum name was...
