Wine Blog Archive: My Life

my life

In this category of the wine blog I collect all those articles I wrote to take snapshots of my life and my emotions. The first time I read Bridget Jones's Diary, I found myself in that 10-year-old girl who eats too much, drinks too much, smokes too much, makes a fool of herself, talks too much and collects one asshole after another. Then I quit smoking, I started tasting wine for work and being called as a guest to events. And it's been XNUMX years now. Ah, obviously I've never stopped talking too much… but now if you send me a wine that I don't like or invite me to a tasting that maybe isn't one of my favorites, I gild the pill without sticking it on to the reader. It's love? I have an intelligent, big-hearted husband who differs from Mark Darcy only in being more handsome and younger. For the “Bridget of wine” the happy ending is just the beginning… even if she still fights us every day with the scales.

Venturini Baldini: a modern and familiar château in the Food Valley

On Saturday, for the first time in 7 years, I left Moleskine at home. Not only that, I also made an effort not to take notes. It seems like a trivial start, but the reality is that to savor an Experience you just have to live it. For the same reason I have ...

Self-made: the life of a woman (which inspired many women)

2020 horoscope: what do we uncork to celebrate the turning point?

I am not a faithful reader of horoscopes, in fact I do not look at them at all ... except the first days of the year, where I consult several out of curiosity. And so it was also for the horoscope 2020. Of course, I feel the faithful copy of my sign: I am an ascendant bull and ...
