Love doesn’t always involve being in love with a person. Sometimes it can be towards something you like. For example, wine! Loving wine can be just like getting butterflies when you meet a person for the first time. It can also feel like breaking up from a toxic relationship. When you don’t have feelings for wine it most likely tastes a little bland. It’s all about seeing what will happen next with every sip. Will it taste like love? Or will it taste like poison? It could just come down to loving something without being “in love.”
- Often I tell myself, “I’m not in love with wine.” In fact, when I see an article which displays 50 years of one wine being opened and tasted, I cringe
- I really love to see how vineyards change as they age. How winemaking utilizes different tools.
- But maybe also leading to a place where one sees the wholeness of this love. And that’s where I am for now with wine. I’m patiently anticipating the next step, waiting for the butterflies to return.
