Wine Resolutions for 2014

Happy new year, everyone!  I always start the year off with resolutions, like so many other people.  But this year, I’m going to call them something else — “resolution” leaves a slightly bitter taste in my mouth, probably because I’ve failed to keep so many of them!  So I’m going to go slightly new age-y and call them “intentions”.  Maybe that way I’ll actually manage to fulfil them in 2014…

First, I want to develop a routine so that I am actually posting to this blog on a regular basis.  In my ideal world, I’d post at least once a week.  In my real world, I know that might be a little ambitious, and I’m all about setting myself up for success when I make new goals.  So my intention is to blog at least every second week, with bonus points for blogging more often.

Bon gave me an absolutely fabulous wine journal for Christmas this year (thanks, Bon!), and I’m going to work through all of the information sections in the front, and I’ll share with you what I learn.  Apologies to folks who know something about wine already; it’s bound to be basic stuff, but that’s where I’m at.


My second intention for the year is to fill all the tasting pages in my new journal.  They’re called “connoisseur’s notes” in the book, and there are quite a lot of them.  But all that means is that we have to have more wine parties this year, which is never a bad thing!

My third intention is to throw a naked wine party.  Stay tuned for details!

My fourth and final intention is to play many rounds of Winerd, the new game I got for Christmas from another friend who knows I’m into wine.  It looks like a ton of fun, and again, it will encourage me to try lots of new types of wine!
