There’s been a distinct lack of sewing at Did You Make That Towers, largely because there’s been a distinct lack of home time at Did You Make That Towers! I’m 200 miles from home in Haworth, West Yorkshire.
Haworth was the home of the Brontes. As a student, I spent a summer working at the Bronte Parsonage, and two of my university friends would come and visit me. Little did we know that this cobbled village would become our lifelong mutual touchstone; the place we returned to as our lives scrolled through marriages, jobs, pets, children, homes, journeys and adventures.
So, what better way to celebrate our latest reunion than with a bottle of something cold, crisp and fizzy.
My local wine shop, In Vino Veritas, invited me to review five bottles of their wine, over the course of five weeks. (Consider yourselves warned!) This Casa Bianchi was my first bottle, and I knew immediately that it was going into my weekend bag, to share with my friends.
If you haven’t visited Haworth and the Yorkshire moors, you really should. There’s a reason Wuthering Heights was written against this backdrop.
Once the three of us had finished walking the rain slick cobbles, we settled down to test the wine so kindly supplied by In Vino Veritas. We even recorded a little audio review. Giggling involved! Check it out here.
Thanks so much to my lovely Walthamstow wine shop for the Argentinian fizz. Thanks to you, readers, for your patience whilst my sewing languishes. And thanks to my two good friends, without whom, life would be cast ever so slightly in shadow. As it is, the Argentinian sun is warm on our skin, thanks to a bottle of Casa Bianchi.
