The last day of the year, and I am browsing pictures from 2016. I guess this is a typical post for a lazy blogger, reading old posts and thinking of which stories are worth revisiting. Looking back, it seems like a lifetime since these moments were the present: visiting Champagne, enjoying the views over Valtellina valley and all those lovely dinners in Stockholm. Life starts sprinting when you turn 30 (now I’m already 34), and there doesn’t seem to be any way to slow it down. I guess it is that you really start knowing yourself and what you like after a certain age, so better just buckle up and enjoy the ride.
I cant really single out a favorite post, but some of the finest moments of 2016 (winewise) were spent visiting Bollinger, ARPEPE in Italy and touring around wine bars of New York. I also really enjoyed finding some great wine bars close to home: Vina and Woodstockholm. And the best dinners of the year were definitely at 11 Madison Park and 108. We also started our successful cooperation with Torello, that has been been very good for our company. An eventful year 2016 – much has happened.
What will 2017 bring? I have no idea. We are really living a week at a time now with our hands full of work. Well not right now, but in general. There are no new wine trips planned, no new cooperations. We will just have to see what pops up – something exciting always does. I will work a bit on the look and feel of the blog and think more about sharpening the concept. I am quite fond of all my food photos and like writing about them.
Have a great New Year! We will be popping a nice cool bottle of crispy Delamotte here under the flashing Singapore sky.
