New Year’s Resolutions

A few years ago I made a different type of New Year’s Resolution. Instead of vowing to exercise more, lose weight or get more organized, I decided  to learn more about wine.  I highly recommend this type of as a resolution. Each year, in December I know more about wine  than I did the previous January. The more that I learn, the more that I find that I don’t know. Therefore, although I have succeeded each year, I can make the same resolution again for the next year.

This journey has led me from reading Red Wine for Dummies to a wine appreciation course and finally to working my way through sommelier courses.

have gone from making my own wine to travelling to Italy, Spain and Portugal on wine tours. The experiences that I have had and the people I have met on this journey have certainly enriched my life.



So this year, after the Champagne, Cava and Prosecco  are finished; consider a positive resolution like mine and see where it leads you. It does not have to be about wine, but finding a passion and learning more about it, can certainly enrich your life.

P.S.  I no longer make my own wine and the Red Wine for Dummies book is gone.
