A bunch of friends pop round unannounced. They all want white wine and you haven't got a single bottle cold. What's the best way to chill some quickly? Simple. Put some water and ice in a bucket. Add the bottle and a good handful of salt.
This causes the temperature to drop suddenly. With wine most often the drink of choice, Max Allen makes it simple, with this straight-forward guide to enjoying wine. How to choose, what to look for, what can go wrong, what you need to know about vintage wine...this book is filled with a multitude of tips that will make enjoying wine simpler.
With break-out boxes outlining everything from how to spot a good/bad wine to dispelling wine myths, the book also includes practical tips like how to get red wine stains out of carpet, how to get a broken cork out of a bottle to more detailed information like how sparkling wine is made.
As my practice of meditation becomes more a part of my daily life, new insights as I never dreamed of existing are becoming obvious and clear, often times challenging my limited means of expression; yet I try non-the-less. So it seems fitting I refer to the accounts in the writings, as ?The quest for non labeled reality?. I am sure in time my entries to date will appear as clumsy attempts at expression, and hopefully that will prove to be true. For to stay static in thought, feeling satisfied with ?that's just the way it is? to me is a terrible waste of awareness.
