New Heights & Hidden Gems.

Sometimes things may not go as we have planned, and we always hope the next moment, day, month and year is going to be better than the current one. However, what are we doing about it? Nothing changes unless you change something. The same old mindset will not create brand new results. We have to think different to encourage new actions which will produce new outcomes.

A Hidden Gem: Newton Vineyard.

Newton Vineyard is a hidden gem located in St. Helena, CA and it will take your breath away. When my Instagram bestie Soy (@RetroModernSplendor) from New York said she was coming to visit me, I knew I wanted to take her here. Founded in 1977 by Sua (from China) and Peter Hua (from England), Newton Vineyard is one of the most prestigious estates in California’s Napa Valley with an interesting but subtle combination of cultural influences on the property’s several landmarks (you’ll see why later). The terraced mountain estate has less than one-fifth of its total 560 acres planted to vines at elevations ranging up to 1,600 feet above sea level. The non-farmed acreage remains in its native forested state providing natural habitat for indigenous wildlife. The property is definitely a gem, but besides the breathtaking views and the spectacular gardens, this winery itself is extremely unique.

There’s just something about life on the beach next to the ocean air that can soothe, heal and rejuvenate the soul.
