5 resolutions that we can try to keep this year

Taking the Time to Breathe

Well, we should always do that otherwise we’ll get lightheaded, pass out, hit our head on the coffee table, and then be told we must have a drinking problem because all injuries that occur to people who drink wine seem to be the result of some drinking problem. Thanks Mom.

OK, so we have our breathing under control, now let’s let the wine take a few breaths. Wine and oxygen are a match made in heaven. Much like ourselves, wines can gain energy with some deep breathing. Pranayama Yoga for wine, that’s what we need to start practicing. Let your wine breathe a bit, either in a decanter before service, ideal for younger wines, or in the bottle after double decanting.

    I love these resolutions and I definitely need to add some... no ALL of them to my list! Except the cellar one... my supply is not impressive... but if anyone needs help making room in their's so they can buy new bottles, I'll send you my address. ;) Happy New Years Gregory, Snooth team, and fellow wine lovers!

    My ladyfriend makes frothed half and half for her coffee drinks, and the frother, little battery operated device, will stir up a glass of wine and give it a 1/2 inch thick layer of bubbles .... the wine is oxygenated in 30 seconds rather than two hours.

    Hey Honeybells. Happy New Year and good luck with everything. Things sound so exciting for you!

    Steve, an interesting idea. Aeration for the impatient!
