Winter is coming.
Cold, crisp mornings where the frost catches your breath turning to mist before your eyes, where leaves crunch beneath your feet. The dark gloom of morning lasting longer each day as the equinox looms closer, the dusk of twilight ever earlier as the days grow short.
It is a time for long evenings; hearty, slow-cooked food; rich, smooth and silky red wine; warm evenings on the sofa – staying in is the new going out.
Let’s invite over our friends, and find a new favourite wine to share with them. A glass of prosecco chase the gloom away, an inviting smell of home cooking drifting through as guests arrive. In the kitchen one glass for the saucepan, one glass for the chef. Open some bottles, be generous with the people who matter most. Smile, eat, drink, enjoy. Bring a sense of occasion to the long dark and brighten it with laughter.
Let’s light up winter.
