My sincerest apologies for the lag in posts the past few days. Things have been hectic yet fabulous. I returned today from a wonderful yet too short weekend camping trip. There were 8 of us on the trip and it was loads of fun. BBQ-ing, fireworks, fishing, tubing & BIG CAMP FIRES. Ahhh…so much fun. I brought a bunch of wine and someone questioned whether wine was camping appropriate. I thought it was perfect actually. While chillin’ in a chair & fishing on the Delaware river I preferred a cold beer. But a bottle of rose in the early evening and a cup (no glasses at the campgrounds – oh well) of red at night with a burger by the campfire – SOOOO GOOOOOD!
Quickly want to thank everyone who made it out to Le Rendezvous wine bar last Thursday night. The turnout was great and all who made it were treated to a spectacular night (if I do say so myself). I was able to seat almost all the guests and like a good party host I mingled with everyone while constantly filling up their glasses with fabulous wines from Yarden & Galil Mountain. I got lots of people nice and buzzed, but more importantly the guests and wine bar staff (and owner) loved the wines and really enjoyed the evening and ambiance at the fabulous Le Rendezvous wine bar.
Finally want to share an interesting little tidbit with you. The Beverage Information group recently released their 2008 wine handbook and announced that wine consumption in 2008 once again rose – by 3.2%. Doesn’t sound like a lot but it marks the 14th consecutive year of “case gains”. The full PR Newswire release can be found here.
Happy Campfire Israel Wine Tasting!
