I read a great quote about wine once from Dan Aykroyd, “Wine represents to me sharing and good times and a celebration of life. It is always around happy occasions with family and friends and centered around joy. What better item to be involved in than something that represents all these wonderful things.” As a person who loves food and the conversations that happen around food and drinks, this quote resonated with me big time. Some of my fondest memories with family and friends have been around the dinner table. Some at home and some while being out to a meal with family and friends but always over an amazing meal and great wine.
And so today, wine is what we will be talking about.
