“The wines that one best remembers are not necessarily the finest that one has ever tasted, and the highest quality may fail to delight so much as some far more humble beverage drunk in more favorable surroundings with friends.” –H. Warner Allen
Another year is coming to a close – I hope this has been a productive one for you and family. December brings us Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, and Boxing Day, along with parties with friends and family; all of which provide opportunities to enjoy wine. Initially, we were going to present two red wines, but a white wine crossed my path that couldn’t be ignored. Whatever you choose to celebrate this month, I think you’ll find either, or both, of these wines will give you a reason to toast the season.
Both of these wines were purchased at Family Beer and Liquor (FamilyBeer.com).
