Thankful for Wine

There are many things in life to be thankful for, but wine gives us so much.

We are thankful for a glass of wine with dinner. There are few beverages that do so much to add to the enjoyment of a nice meal. A good glass of wine can elevate a casual dinner to something special.

We are thankful for wine at the end of a hard day. Wine is also a great way to wind down for the evening. Opening a bottle for dinner, then sharing the remainder as we relax in front of the TV is a great way to close out a hard day after work.

We are thankful for all the experiences wine brings us. Wine tours are a great excuse to visit the countryside and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Learning about wine has been a reason to try new and interesting foods to pair with the new and interesting styles of wine. And, as we explore around home and afar, looking for the best wine bar has been the source of countless adventures.

We are thankful for those who share our wine with us. Wine is wonderful as a sharing experience. Opening a few bottles with friends over the course of an evening. Chatting with people about wine. Sharing our expanding knowledge with you readers and those who've attended our wine events. It's a way to share a common experience, and get a little bit closer.

We are thankful for those who bring us our wine. One aspect of wine that seldom gets talked about, we are thankful for the way it captures the hard work of our farmers. It's often easy to gloss over the effort that goes in getting food to our plates, but wine is a great way to show the value of the effort and skill of those who spend their days making sure we have these wonderful things to enjoy.
