The La Posta winery bottles the wines using the same process, so the only difference in flavor is the terroir and approach to grape-growing that each family has. And it makes a huge difference! Try these […]

We started with bananas, moved to peaches, added a tiny bit of flan rolled in there, and are currently filling them with creamy mascarpone cheese. The most important part is the batter though.
