The allure of a luminous, crackling fire encircled by two cozy armchairs is irresistible. As the waves of warmth waft over you as you settle in with a glass of wine, you melt into the tranquil surroundings that harken back to a time less hectic. Some Pinot Noir, coupled with bakery-fresh bread, a slice of pear sprinkled with aged Roquefort – and quiet conversation – converge to give a “Golden Glow” to this special occasion. What could be better?
