To begin, I would like to take you back to a moment in time when I was whisked away in the eerie mountain air and transported into the mesmerising world of wine.
This pivotal moment occurred at the base of the snow-capped Andes in Mendoza, Argentina, where I smelled and tasted my first inky, juicy Malbec. The aromas of black cherry, plum, blackberry, violets, and leather were captivating, and I discovered that wine tasting offers the opportunity to stay in the moment, to breathe, to reflect, to think about life.
It may be true that when we seek greater meaning in life we grab on to the first thing that presents itself, transposing meaning on to it. But nevertheless, there in Mendoza, I discovered that wine is more than a drink—it is a way of life.
