Christmas is always a great time for wine and friends. Unfortunately, my holiday was curtailed by a high ankle sprain and since meds and wine don’t mix – I had very little of it. However, we tried some horrible “Christmas Themed” wine (Eight Tiny Reindeer Winery) – which I cannot even recommend as a white elephant gift (unless you really don’t like the person). Enjoyed the Samuel Robert Winery Pinot Noir with my brother’s Christmas Dinner. The rest of the family didn’t enjoy it as much as I did – as they prefer something a little sweeter (or don’t drink at all). And of course, there were all the wine themed gifts from friends and family (ornaments, books, shirt, napkins, coasters and wine tags). Plus, a quiet New Year’s Eve with my besties, and two amazing bottles of Veuve Clicquot (one Reserve and one Rose).
I’m glad to kick off 2023 by catching up on the end of 2022 and some new adventures.
