I owe you an apology. I wish I could blame it on hibernation or a freak gasoline-fight accident that resulted in a month-long ICU visit, but sadly, I’ve just been really busy and haven’t had a chance to drink too much wine.
“What have I been busy doing?” one might ask. And one might be in for an amazing answer that doesn’t at all involve working long hours in a cubicle on websites that are a lot less exciting than a wine blog.
First of all, I realized that I could never run an off-shore sports betting firm. In order to do that, you need to wear lots of gold jewelry and silk shirts. I look better in earth tones.
Then I was busy getting ready for summer camping by reading up on how to fight a bear. Then I fought a bear. That didn’t go so well. If I had to describe the fight in one word, it would probably be “bitey”.
But finally, I’m back, and I’m here for good.
Here are some of the things you can look forward to hearing me ramble on about and/or join me in trying out:
- Game Night is coming back around. My team didn’t win last month, but that’s only because only half of us were there. We played Scatergories, which is easier with a full team. Everyone had such a good time that we’re playing that again, and trust me (this is mainly directed to the ladies that won)…we’re coming correct this time.
- This week’s tasting is Ward Johnson Winery . They’re from Queen Anne Hill in Seattle and we’ll taste all four of his wines, a chardonnay, a cab, a merlot and a syrah. When I lived in Queen Anne, I never had the opportunity to try this place, so I’m excited. I hear things. Good things.
- They’re doing an awesome “World Cup” special right now with Graham Beck Winery. They’re a non-profit South African Winery that supports the natural heritage of the Country and owns and runs a game reserve. We’ve got their Sparkling Brut, a chardonnay-viognier blend and a cabernet sauvignon. We have them available by the bottle and by the glass.
I hope to see some of you there for the tasting Thursday and/or Saturday and if not, I’ll see you for game night next week when I regain the crown.
Upcoming posts will include a better breakdown of the tasting and World Cup special, and more trash talk about game night, in which I may or may not call people out by name.
