A Note from Sergio
When I'm at home I drink for health, for simplicity, and for taste, because wine, like family, should be both a pleasure and a comfort. Nestled in the company of my beautiful wife and kids, eating dinner that we have cooked, I invariably drink something wonderfully ordinary: a really delicious, simple wine. When I'm relaxing at home, I go for a bottle that doesn't make me think too much. I want to enjoy the moment--not complicate it.Today's Featured Sections Include:
That said, I also enjoy the times when I choose to drink a serious wine, a wine that I have to commit to, me form a relationship with. I'm talking about serious wines that require me train myself to forgo my likes and dislikes, to reframe my thinking, and to respond to on its own mercurial merits. These are life-changing wines, potentially, and I approach them with the gravitas they deserve.
There are also wines that I pour when I want to commemorate a moment--sometimes I've had these wines before, so when I open that bottle and drink the wine again, it layers the experience with a bricolage of memories, of sensory responses, of feelings. I reserve that kind of involvement for holidays and special occasions.
Today's eLetter has single bottles of wine for all occasions, some serious and some simple, to buy and enjoy when you're at home, with others, or when the feeling strikes. Each one of these wines is an experience in the making--and all it's waiting for is you, the right time, and the people you love.
