Now that the holidays are over, I don't know about you, but I am feeling a bit claustrophobic. This can only mean one thing- quit drinking by ourselves in the house and go out to see what the city has to offer.
I encourage you to see what new restaurants and bars have opened in your area. This is the time of year when exciting concepts debut- new by the glass wines, diverse wine lists, and different vintages are premiered. Truly, it is the dawn of new things about wine. As we go through 2010, your motto should be....Let's experiment and give the new guys a chance. Be adventurous, whether it is trying the new restaurant around the corner or a wine that has been featured, fulfill yourself and learn everything you wanted to know about wine- and bring along some friends in your journey. There is only one way to accomplish this task...One glass at a time.
As we start the great year of 2010, excitement bursts forth and we think about what we are going to do for this great new year.
We turn around and realize there is no wine left in the house....Have no fear, do not panic, there is no better time to shop for wine than now. After returning all those gifts, take the time to go to your local mega mart or grocery store, because right now mellowing out in the back of these stores are grocery carts full of wiine that did not sell over the holiday season. This is a great time to make an opportunity for yourself and find wines that have been marked down 50-75%. So...even if you feel that you celebrated a little too hard over the holiday, take a deep breath, an asprin, relax a little and go shopping to find the bese values of the year.
