Happy New Year!

Thankfully, we all survived the Holidays!  Lot’s of eating, drinking and fun.  We had an opportunity to drink a lot more sparkling wine than usual.

I would like to mention one in particular that I think is very impressive.  That would be the Blanc de Noir, by Gruet. 

This is a bright, refreshing sparkler that has all the nuances of a good French champagne, but it is made  right here in the USA in, of all places, New Mexico!  For about $15 you can’t go wrong.

The past year has been a good one for FEWC.  With our usual fun weekly get- togethers, interspersed with BYOB dinners, New York Times wine school dinners and, of course, a trip to France, we have been quite busy!

Now we look forward to a terrific 2018, with many good bottles of wine to discover.   I ran across an article in the Chicago Tribune by their wine critic, Michael Austin.  He made some suggestions that sounded like good advice.  Here is the link to the article:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/dining/sc-food-wine-resolutions-1229-story.html

I hope you enjoy it.  Let me know what you think.

So pour yourself a glass of wine, raise it high and let’s have a toast,

“To 2018, may we all have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!”
