Tonight I’m celebrating the new year with my family. I’ll be having the usual fare but at least this year I will be drinking something I like, Chianti from Terra di Seta, the only all kosher winery in Italy.
I wrote a long post about the winery earlier this year which you can read here.
I’m looking forward to seeing how their wines have evolved since I last tasted them at Vinitaly in April.
I wish everyone a sweet and happy New Year.
With the Jewish New Year upon us and my family coming to my home for dinner, I am once again given the opportunity to make resolutions, to think about where things stand vis – a – vis one year ago, etc.
My first resolution is to thank all of my new friends and acquaintances that I have met in our business throughout these last years.
My second is to sleep more and worry less about work, life and family.
My third is to drink wine with enjoyment and with attention as I gear up for another one of the degrees I aspire to complete.
My fourth is to read a new blog/journalist post or article a day and to be more methodical in my undertakings.
My fifth is to write everyday even if a short post as I try to complete the book I started five years ago in Italy and my sixth is give back through volunteering on a more consistent basis rather than what I do currently.
I know people think resolutions are silly but I always find that once you put something out into the world it helps you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
I’m going to tackle one of my resolutions now…sleep.
