The past few summers I had really been wanting to experience a wine tasting. Although it had been on my mind I never made the plan or got a group together so it just wasn’t happening. A few weeks back my boyfriend and I were on our way to Newport for an event we heard about but upon our arrival we found they had closed up early. While in that moment it seemed really unfortunate, it lead to my first official wine tasting! We took the opportunity in beautiful and historic Newport, Rhode Island to visit a nearby vineyard and truly take advantage of the experience. It was so fun to try different wines (and PRETEND I knew what I was talking about) while soaking in the summer sun and looking out over the expansive vineyards. So although the day did not go to plan, something new and peaceful came out of the day. With that said I have to get a little cheeeeesyyyyy (I just can’t help myself) and express how each moment is a gift and although things don’t always go exactly as we had expected and it can seem like luck is not on your side, if we simply accept the things out of our control instead of lingering in the disappointment we can find new, exciting and positive discoveries just around the corner.
My wine of choice is typically a red, and most favorably Cabernet Sauvignon. This summer season, I find myself on a Rosé kick! (Also due in part to the fact that I recently read its one of the lower calorie drinks.)
