Later, Wine-Tasting Egos!

After a day off, we are back. September first! Where has the year gone?

I help but feel a little nostalgic about this time of year: the weather starts to turn a little nasty, the grapes start to reach full maturity, and every waking moment is wine. It is a very exciting time for a new company. So much potential. So many possibilities. The key is taking life day by day and not getting lost in what we have to do, rather live in the moment, in our triumphs, our failures, and really experience starting MSix Wines. Days like today only happen once.

Enough mushy stuff for a Thursday! Fantastic article regarding wine-tasting egos was posted yesterday. A MUST read. An excerpt:

So please, peeps, spare the world any of your wine-tasting egos. In fact, banish the damn wine-tasting ego totally, and free up some time and energy for sharing your wine experiences and helping others get more involved in loving wine – there’s more of a spiritual pay-off, it’s more fun, and will fill up your soul with more joy than waxing philosophic about your own tasting abilities ever could.

I could not have put it better myself. I tell you, it is refreshing to know that I am not the only one with this opinion.

We are in the final FINAL stages of wrapping up the layout and details for our charity event. We are just waiting for a couple forms to be filled out and finalize before we can announce our event. I have had the opportunity to share my idea with a couple close friends and have been pleasantly surprised with their overwhelming excitement.

More tomorrow! I am really excited for this week’s food and wine pairing!


Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
