I don't think it's any secret that I love wine... especially as I have a blog largely devoted to it. It's more than just the liquid itself though, it's the ritual that comes with it for me. Wine for me is a way of life. I always use a good glass. I always drink it slowly. I always enjoy smelling it, looking and the colour and swirling it in the glass. And I love drinking it with friends and catching up with what's happening in their world. I think the ritual I've built around drinking wine serves as a reminder to me to slow down, to breathe, to enjoy a moment and unwind. That's not something that's always easy to do in this hectic world, so finding ways to incorporate it into my life is wonderful.
