My life has just taken a major turn for the better. After two weeks of solidly being glued to my chair in the office and getting all my accounts from the last 18 months up to date I’ve finally caught up with myself! Of course I celebrated by cracking open a bottle of wine and sitting through a really boring 0-0 draw between my team Liverpool and West Ham. Well, at least I had the wine!
A few weeks back I picked up my first load of Bordeaux wines to start off my cellar with. They’re going to take pride of place alongside my Barolos and Barbarescos, and at some point I’m going to have to jump in the car and head to Alsace in France and Rheingau in Germany to really bring it along. But for now I’m pretty chuffed with the start. And there are some great wines in there!
So New Wine This Week is now a fortnightly thing. My YouTube posts are (fingers crossed) every Monday. If I write too much on what it’s like finally being in the wine industry I’ll bore myself, let alone you lot. So there’s a bit of space in the 2015 repertoire for something else…
Great response to yesterday’s primer for the year’s New Wine This Week. Especially for you smart arses who threw plenty of “X” suggestions my way! Unfortunately one or two suggestions had to be disqualified, but they were good efforts to sip under the radar. Some however, including Xinfandel, were not so good!
Well here it is guys, my first attempt at sitting in front of a camera!
