Like many people, I have been quite freaked out all week about possible attacks on our soil and of course saddened by those around the global. As an antidote to my fear, I have consumed copious amounts of food and wine and played with my small son as much as possible. Thursday, Il Beaujolais est arrive and I for one went straight out to buy some. As a first wine after the harvest, it is never fantastic but I always enjoy it as the start of the holiday season. This year more than ever. Sante’.
