To the Other Side of The World

That time of the year is coming. Christmas! And those who have followed the blog for some time know, that when Christmas comes, our little family takes off somewhere warm. For a month. This is our substitute for having a summer holiday. Most years, we have headed towards South East Asia. Its warm, affordable and easy living. No good wine though – just good beer and cocktails.

And now I don’t mean just food, but wine as well. I like my wines light in July. Ok, so I like my wines always quite light. However, I could not gulp down any heavy Barolo or Cabernet in this weather. Those I reserve solely for cold fall or Christmas evenings when I actually feel like something thicker. As I have tasted some great new stuff this July, I thought I would share with you my favorite new discoveries.  Continue reading “My Three Favorite Wines of July”
