Day 2 end

An uneventful day, spent at home. Did nothing today, absolutely nothing except update my cellar book, catch up on some wine notes, and of course, polish off those bottles of Cesseras.

Grape Radio is pumping out so many video podcasts on Champagne, it's hard to keep up. But I love it. Of course, it'd be even better if the content included some tasting, and more things in the vineyard besides almost exclusively video of people talking, but it's better than nothing. Grape Radio produces the best wine videos outside of LCBO anyways.

Packing for Niagara tomorrow. The only reason I agreed to go is because we're visiting some great wineries, and we're going out to an extravagant dinner. Let's be honest - an overnight stay at Niagara isn't exactly high on excitement.

The Cesseras were wonderful tonight. They're wines that really open up and become even more complex - how many sub-$20 wines can do that?

Our first appointment is at 11am tomorrow, at Thirty Bench. That means a departure time of about 9:45, meaning I have to get up around 8:30. Despite having to wake up at such an unreasonably early time on a Saturday, I'm still going to get blazingly drunk tonight. A votre sante!
