So we hosted a ‘Wine and Cheese’ party last night at Regency Park to introduce our new Administrator to our families.
Where I come from, I’ve got more of a personal affinity towards coffee and cake, but I guess wine and cheese is more Avant-garde so I was certainly game.
Turned out to be a beautiful and classy affair and I actually learned a few things too!
Did you know that a real wine aficionado never holds a glass of wine anywhere other than by the stem?
That’s right. Heaven forbid anyone to show their amateurish lack of sophistication by gripping a glass of wine like you would a cup of soda! You wouldn’t want to unduly influence the required temperature of the wine with the warmth of your fingers around the glass.
After all, the succulent aroma of the wine, coupled with the “hint of berries and birchwood (who the heck puts together these wood with wine references anyway; a lumberjack?!), along with the strong smooth finish” would be irrevocably altered by doing a dastardly thing such as this!
I learned the hard way last night.
In any event, now that I’ve become a true wine connoisseur, my life is much better! Lol!
Take a look at some pictures from last night’s event!
