If I’m going to use my sewing blog to review wines for In Vino Veritas, there’s one inevitable question.
Do you drink and sew?
I do! Not all the time, but sometimes. If I’m chillin’ on a Saturday evening, with a bit of food, a bit of wine, a bit of telly and a bit of sewing. I’ve been known to use my wine glass as a pattern weight, which is a risky strategy to say the very least.
I’m not sure I’d steek a cardigan or cut out some expensive silk after half a bottle, but there are some tasks that I’ll take on.
Interestingly, I can’t write a word after even a single sip of wine, though this wine-fuelled video remains one of most favourite author portrayals. (This one comes a close second – terrifyingly close to some of my brainstorm experiences.)
Anyway! This week’s wine was a lovely Louis Moreau Chablis. Was. It’s been drunk. Possibly whilst sewing. It was my least favourite of the wines tasted so far (two more to go). I wish I was more eloquent on the topic of wines; I’m such a heathen! It had quite a sharp tang to my tastebuds (the notes describe it as steely). Maybe a more sophisticated palette would have appreciated the subtleties. Do I sound like I know what I’m talking about?
Am I the right person to review wines online?! Any courses you recommend?
