Having just spent a few months writing my new book “It’s Not About The Wine” on reflection I was never short of material in writing this 50 year memoir of being a wino! In fact it got harder and harder to know what to leave out because 50 years is a very, very long time! Remember it’s been 50 years of 100+ grapes, holidays all over the world, hundreds of vineyards visited and probably thousands of places in which wine was enjoyed.
It became impossible to decide on where had been our favourite places to while away the time with a glass of wine, so many brasseries, so many restaurants, tabacs in France, tapas bars in Spain, pizzeria in Italy, seafood restaurants in San Francisco, steak houses in Denver. Then so many places outdoors cruising the Mediterranean or just sitting in a historic square or playa like the one in the image above. These are the places that bring out history, culture, philosophy …. all with a glass of wine.
So, these places didn’t get a chapter in my book and therefore in the coming weeks I’ll start to share a few of them as short posts here on my blog. Where have been YOUR favourite places to sip a,glass or two, please do share either here or via a post of your own and I’d be very pleased to share and reblog.
