Planning a wedding takes an extreme amount of coordination of details. But who comes up with the overall design and vision for the wedding? And who pays attention to the details of the various elements and ensures that they are coming together to tell a story? In many cases, the bride and groom have snippets of ideas that they want to include in their dream wedding, maybe a color or the style of the wedding dress, but they struggle in how to pull it all together. Several years ago, I developed the Jeffrey B. Haines Signature Style of Entertaining, exclusively at the Bernards Inn. Having worked...

On a recent wine trip to California, my travel plans included visiting Livermore Valley which is located about one hour south of Napa Valley and 30 miles southeast of San Francisco.

There are many wineries in Livermore Valley, but one of the most popular is Wente Vineyards. Wente also boasts a wonderful restaurant located at the entrance to their beautiful Greg Norman PGA golf course. If you play golf on this magnificent course, and your g...

I was able to interact with guests the night before their events and assist them again the ...

As a sommelier, it will likely come as no surprise that wine dinners are one of my favorite parts of the job. Wine dinners are such an amazing way to experience, enjoy and learn more about wine and food, all within the company of enthusiastic wine drinkers, and more often than not, foodies! The recent Girardin Burgundy Wine Dinner was no exception—it was an intimate and friendly evening that was enjoyed by all. Our guest host for the evening, Marco Caschera, Export Director from Meursault France, was eager to share his passion and knowledge about the Girardin wines. I personally enjoyed all t...

In a mere 4 days, two of the rooms on the third floor at the Bernards Inn were striped, painted, wallpapered, carpeted and overnight given a new personality. As the designer for the Bernards Inn, I have named the third floor rooms Metro 14 and Metro 15. When I was selected by the Bernards Inn to reinvent and redesign the guest rooms at the Inn, I developed an intriguing vision for the rooms. My concept embraces the history of the Inn and its luxurious location in the Somerset Hills. Each guest room is distinctive and inspired by the personality of one of the grand estates on the Bernardsville...
