Eat Drink & Be Merry

I have a confession to make.....I love red wine. I don't just love it....I LOVE it! I love a glass of good wine after a long day at work, on a Friday evening to celebrate the end of a long week or on the weekend, just because I can!! Red wine and comfort food are two of my most favourite things. They are good for the soul. Somedays after a long day at the office, a good glass of wine helps me to maintain my sanity when I am feeling stressed out and wound tight. Lately, I have been making an effort to buy organic and that includes wine. I've got to do my part and be a conscious consumer whenever I can :-) so, I headed out to our local LCBO and located the one & only organic wine they stocked. It is a fabulous, light cabernet sauvignon....and it's within my price range (what a relief!!) ~ so of course I purchased a bottle on the spot, so I could have a taste...well, maybe a few tastes before posting a blog about it. The wine is Bonterra. It's a Californian wine and I like it very much.  I'm not much of a wine connoisseur so I can't give you a proper critique...either I like the wine or I don't, and "I like it".  

Well, it's getting late ~ time to get out my favourite wine glass, put my feet up and enjoy some good TV before hitting the hay.
