And just like that we have moved onto February 2017. Geez, time flies!
Our team just celebrated 2016 with our holiday party and it made me think: each shift we work as a team, we juggle knowledge about wine, serving guests, and knowing the world of food all at the same time. It can seem like a whirlwind for even the most experienced team member but alas, those shifts are the ones we especially enjoy that glass of wine once we clock out.
This post is going to be as random as they come but I wanted this first post of February to come at you with quotes about wine, enticing pictures, and organized charts delving into all aspects of how wine exists.
February is the month of love, a feeling that only grows within myself each time I learn something new about wine. Hopefully some of this entertaining info makes you fall deeper in love with wine as well or perhaps appreciate it for exactly what it is.
So take it all in and embrace the wonderful weirdness of wine!
“In victory, you deserve Champagne. In defeat you need it.”
― Napoleon Bonaparte
“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.”
― Paulo Coelho
“Either give me more wine or leave me alone.”― Rumi, circa 1200’s
“A gourmet meal without a glass of wine just seems tragic to me somehow.”
― Kathy Mattea
“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
― Ernest Hemingway
