I also chose them because this is the time of year you should be sharing some of your best wines. Yes, the family may not be the most appreciative of the gift, but as they say: it is the thought that counts. And if you don’t share them now, who will you end up sharing them with? Fellow wine geeks no doubt, at a bring out your best dinner that pits one wine against another. No. Better to share them with your family and have them tell you that your prized bottles “tastes great, it’s fruity and smooth and doesn’t leave a bad taste in your mouth!”
Yes, there is that moment when you think to yourself “what have I done?” but there are the smiles, and laughter, and these delicious recipes and that emotion quickly passes, replaced by the joy and levity of the season.
Merry Christmas my friends and to those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, you still have ample reason to be thankful, and of course share the bounty of the season.
