Here's to 2017 and all the bottles we can enjoy together ...

Friday 20th January 2017 | by Michael Jobling (Google+) | posted in Main Category

We are halfway through January and as I write, it is according to the papers "Blue Monday". As far as I can see from what the papers are writing most days are "Blue" what with the likes of Trump, Putin, Brexit, rail strikes, weather, Dry January - need I go on?

I am trying to take a different view point.

The year has barely started, we are all starting with a clean sheet, so let's make the most of it. I have made some personal resolutions which I think are achievable and have some dates in the diary to look forward to. I have a family member (who will remain nameless) who hits a really big birthday this year, if that is not a reason for a bit of a bash I can think of no better excuse. I am also determined this year to meet up with friends who I have not seen in ages, I don't want to loose contact before it's too late.

I am looking forward to tasting new wines during the year, there are a lot out there that I have not had the chance to try. I am getting off to a good start with this as I am going to be tasting some new wines from Uruguay in the coming week - don't worry I will let you know how I get on.

In the meantime those of you who are doing a "dry January", keep up the good work. It just remains for me to wish you all a belated Happy New Year and I hope we are all still smiling come December 2017. I am confident that whatever the world throws at us there will be some interesting bottles we can enjoy and share with friends both old and new, making us realise that the world is not such a bad place after all.
