It's our favourite day of the week! Wine Wednesday.
Our wine this week comes from Yves Cuilleron, a producer from the northern Rhône Valley in France, whose family has been making wine in this region since the 1920s. His vineyards are mainly positioned on terraces cut into the hillside so the majority of the work done in the vineyard is by hand. Cuilleron’s style of winemaking, however, is modern with a nod to the traditional and so while the wines retain their sense of place and refinement, they also show an expressiveness that is immediately accessible and absolutely delicious.
This 100% Viognier is juicy and fresh on the palate and delightfully aromatic and with white peach, apricot, and floral notes and a balancing mineral finish.
Drink it now (or in the next 1-2 years) and pair it with lobster, crab, shrimp, poached salmon, chicken curry, quail, or pork, and spices (such as saffron, turmeric, ginger, and paprika) – you won’t be sorry!

Corny message of the day:
Stop and take a look at your life and your future. If you aren't doing something everyday that propels your life in the direction you want, then why are you doing it? This isn't some bullshit guru crap to get you to become some overnight success and leave school and employment. Rather its a message of reflection.
Almost two years ago I gave up everything to pursue a goal and dream of owning my own business. The hurdles and stress is no different from anyone elses, but I can say that every little bit of stress is a chance to challenge myself. Honestly I love what I do and the work doesnt feel like work. It's play for me.
The relationships I have built with the people close to me who share that same desire for a day to day routine filled with their passions as a priority, are some of the best relationships I have ever had.
Negativity is a thing of the past when you are doing something you love. No one can tell you otherwise.
So for those who have read this far, I hope you take this message to heart and reflect on your life a little. If you have a burning desire to do something different, then get out there and do it.
Lifes too short to be spending your days not enjoying what you do.

The Ponds And Oxbows Of Griffith Woods Park Are Always A Pleasure To Visit. Lots Of Wildlife And Photographic Opportunities. I Will Admit, This Is An Old Photo So There's Nothing Insta About This Post At All. It Feels Like I Haven't Been Out Exploring In Ages.
Went to the monthly synth night at @dickensyyc tonight. First time! @yanginatep and friends bring a bunch of equipment and hook it all up, and everyone just kind of tinkers and plays around. Very low key, everyone welcome, everyone friendly. If you're into this sort of thing, you should check it out next month. No cover or anything like that. Next one should be about a month from now, on a Tuesday night. I'll drop a heads up on my Facebook page a couple days before, as well as reddit.
