Wine Stained Paths

I grew up out in the middle of Eastern North Carolina on what would be called a small family farm. We had chickens, pigs… Dad’s theory was we could have any pet provided we could eat them when we (he) tired of feeding it. Additionally, there was garden- acres of garden. With Grandparents close by, what we didn’t grow and raise they did. And there were fruits aplenty! Apples, peaches, pears, grapes… preserves, jellies, jams, cider,pies, grape juice, brandy, and of course there was always a bit of the grape juice that was introduced to yeast… with a pungently sweet wine being produced.

Now, my partner on the other hand likes to tell that he grew up in Philly, there they went to the market for groceries in totality it sounds as though- and that traditions it seems continued when they moved to North Carolina. His introduction to wine as the tale goes was welches grape juice being introduced to bread yeasts ensuing in a mild explosion in he and his brother’s closet.

Two worlds that collided about 11 years ago; the common denominator being wine. Little coincidence that we share wine before, during and after dinner. It became a source of many evenings with conversation and friends and a business… but most of all, there are few people in the world I care to share a glass of wine with more than my best friend and life companion.

So, when we write something and mention sharing it with the one you love; that’s exactly what we’re doing ourselves. Curled up on the sofa, or in bed raising our glasses with you celebrating life together. So, tonight grab your favorite bottle and the one you love and share a memory with us.
