Sunday was a big day for me. I moved about 5 cases of wine out to a friend's cellar. I really can't thank my friend enough for offering such a perfect space for my wines. Thank you, a million times over.
I don't collect wine. Collecting is offensive to me, especially with wine. It implies trophyism. Wine no longer becomes for drinking, but for display. And that is vulgar. No, I like to think that I assemble wines, to drink over the course of its maturity, and to always have the appropriate wine for whatever meal we're having.
When you're putting together a cellar, you can't help but be over-protective. Now you know why I insist on following LCBO releases so closely - it's to minimize the time that the wine sits upright, in a bright and warm environment, all hell for proper wine storage.
Recorded, boxed, sealed, delivered. All in 45 minutes. Things are getting a bit busy in there. Soon. Soon, I'll have a permanent place for my bottles. I can only hope that it's as perfect as this.DF
