I recently heard New Years Resolutions referred to as a “to-do” list for the first week of January. Personally, I love the NYR.
I’ve been asking around to see if any people have NYRs concerning wine drinking and buying. Here are the responses I received.
Editor of a “large” metropolitan newspaper, “I resolve to find ‘the’ wine that both my wife and I enjoy.” My solution – stop trying to find a wine you both enjoy and open 2 bottles.
Linktrap John, “Pay attention to food and wine pairings chocolate” – and then he sent me a photo of a Merlot with a Toblerone. Sorry John, I can’t help you.
My brother-in-law, “Drink more of your wine ” – Hey, I may borrow that and try and drink more of other people’s wines too.
My daughter, “Dad, I don’t even drink wine” – fair enough.
This year I resolve to drink more Rioja, Côtes du Rhône, and Australian Shiraz. Like my friend Rob said, “Hey, those our resolutions every year?” – fair enough.
What are your resolutions?
