Tasting table ready to go…
Boy, have I been busy this fortnight. I’ve had a big project go-live in the day job, been given new projects to replace the old and hit some exciting milestones wine-wise, one of which being the new hosting-site for my blog. Although I’ll still be ‘reading and following’ on wordpress.com, I’m now fully functional over on wordpress.org thanks to a patient and clever friend who’s much less technically challenged than myself. So I’d just like to apologise first to my loyal and kind wordpress.com followers for lack of warning that I was moving. Yes, I did post a ‘please follow me over –>here<— at perfectfridaywine.com’ post, but only into ‘Drafts’, so was obviously no good! So here’s my plea:
If you’ve enjoyed reading about my capers in wine over the past year, I really appreciate all the support and encouragement that each and every one of you has given me, so please, please continue to follow me –>here<— at perfectfridaywine.com. I promise to keep my tales fresh, relevant and as frequent as possible. I suspect that you might not need to do anything at all and if this is the case, please do me a favour and like or comment on this post (my first since the blog relocated) so that I know that I don’t need to email you all to beg for refollowage.
So there you go 🙂
On to other news, another more interesting milestone, or perhaps ‘announcement’, is that on the run up to Christmas, I’m dipping my toe into the wine trade. More to come later on this, but in preparation, I’ve held 3 tastings at my house over the past 2 weeks. One sparkling, one white, one red, so if you’re reading this, thanks to all my Perfect Friday Wine helpers for your feedback and enthusiasm. Be grateful I didn’t fancy branching out into selling carpets or house insurance 😉

So, to share the stars of the tastings (and of course, I didn’t take any photos of the wines);
– Sparkling: a tie between the Pierre Paillard Bouzy Grand Cru Champagne and the Bluebell Vineyard Hindleap Classic Cuvée, East Sussex, England.
– White: for me, it had to be the beautiful Domaine de la Creuze Noire Saint-Véran 2011. A fabulously elegant well-priced Burgundian Chardonnay, I’m excited about trying this again.
– Red: The best value red of all had a fantastic reception, the Calmel and Joseph, Villa Blanche Syrah. Another exciting find.
Watch this space, and thanks for reading!
