My friend Jill from Domaine 547 had a brilliant idea this morning ala Wine Library's Gary Vanderchuck (sp?). He apparently gives away wrist bands that say something to the effect of "I'm a Wine Library Fanatic" if you buy his book. I don't have a book (yet) but I'm now inspired to brand myself...
...what about red terry cloth sweat bands for your head that say HELLOWINE...?? I think that would be just GREAT! (Jill's idea)
In other news, I discovered Comcast OnDemand TV last night. Did you know that you can just press a button and watch a movie? It's better than Netflix!
So speaking of sweat bands for your head, I watched Juno (OnDemand for $3.99) and polished off half a bottle of Michel Lafarge, 2003 Bourgogne Rouge. It was delicious! Lafarge is a top producer in Volnay and makes incredibly traditional wines that have a very forest floor dried herb sort of thing going on. You can get this wine at the retail store at Palate for around $28. It's elegant and ephemeral. Providence pours the 2004 by the glass, but be preapred the 04 is a little bit greener - but me still likey!
Now... to order your homemade head band please call....
