5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
On Valentine’s Day, also known as next Monday (commence Medusa-like shrieking), Jeff Segal wants you to think outside the box of chocolates and consider the bottle for your lady friend or gentleman caller.
Segal is the owner of Heart wine bar, restaurant and art gallery in San Francisco - a spot perhaps most notably known for its unconventional "Mason Jar Manifesto" of serving wine out of mason jars. In the words of Segal: "Respect the grape, and the human hands behind it, not the stem."
