We’re almost at the end of the year, and as well as all the festivities of Christmas and New Year, there’s also all the preparation and planning for 2018 to start thinking about … hopefully you’ve got great plans for 2018.
Before we get to those, it would be fun to know what your favourite wine (or other beverage) memory is from this year.
What made the greatest impact in your life?
Maybe a discovery, or a moment made even more special with the right glass in hand, or maybe a taste that sparked the sort of memory that you will treasure much more than all the (sadly less than ‘vintage’) other memories of 2017?
I am lucky to have had some great bottles of wine, and some fantastic events (including my mother’s 70th celebration) this year, but if I shut my eyes and think of one occasion where wine was involved, the one that really jumps to mind was sitting on the balcony of our rental house in Nova Scotia (Canada), drinking a local wine (Nova 7 from Benjamin Bridge) to accompany the mackerel and cod that my kids had caught just that morning and we BBQ’d together.
It was by no means the most expensive or complex wine of the year, but it is a wine memory that will last for a long time in my mind, and will keep me motivated in 2018 to do even more fun things with the family.

I hope you too have made some great memories this year
