Wine not?

OK, so 29 weeks down, that's like, more than half the year gone in what seems like a blink of an eye. And I have managed to do something, however big or small, every week save one. I have to admit that I'm impressed. Some weeks it's really hard, granted, to find something new to do. Those are the weeks where all I do is work and eat and sleep. But by now I am determined to see it through. It has become an important goal for me.

So remember I made a list of things I wanted to do at the beginning of the year? Yeah, that list is actually coming along really nicely. There are a few things on it that I know I won't be able to achieve, but I have crossed off quite a few ones already. Coolness I say.

One of the points on the list was to try 12 new wines. Initially I thought I'd do one new wine each month but apparently that went quicker than I thought. I know I'm at more than 12 as of right now, but that is because I got to participate in a wine tasting a while back. It's been fun trying new stuff out, and I have found a couple new favourites in the process; a rosé from Bordeaux (merlot and cabernet franc), a Moscatel from Spain, and a lovely Vermentino from the border of Toscana and Liguria.

The variety that can come out of a simple litte thing like a grape is amazing to me and it's a lot of fun to try out and discover new gems.
