What is a Busy Book?
A Busy Book is a fun, sensory learning tool for young children aged from 1-5 years. They are story books for boys and girls aged 1-5 that helps with their personal development, so things like brushing their teeth and tying their shoes can become a fun game in real life, rather than a boring daily chore.
Have you ever found yourself finishing off a few large glasses of wine, or dare I say, a whole bottle?
Maybe your busy and stressful and schedule encourages you to create a small cabinet with a few bottles of wine, which dares you celebrate getting home with a glass of any wine?
Over the last decade of two, many of us will have heard the phrase ‘first wine of the chateau’ or ‘free run juice’. Apart from the obvious association with greater wine quality, is there any substance behind wine that a made from just free run juice? But what exactly is it and how is this made?
Over the last few weeks, I have been on a rather bizarre journey. There are a few parts of our business that I have intentionally swayed away from at times. But now, with many of the aspects of our business left in my ‘very able’ hands, it’s a somewhat intimidating prospect. Mostly having to give any new wines the full respect and scrutiny that they need and deserve, but also having to create some new, hopefully exciting and most importantly accurate blog posts.
This month we thought we talk about something incredibly typical, but yet extremely different. Ja! is a very humbly made wine from 100% tempranillo grapes, that has not touched any oak and is simply all about the expressive fruit flavour. When a wine is just this simple ell it is just simply that it really is that simple and when you appreciate the simplicity of the vineyard it’s easy to understand why it is just an incredible wine!
The last 2 years of life has been about one thing, wine. I have lived, drank and slept nothing else except wine. It has become one of the most important factors of my life. Then again, as a retailer of organic and no added sulphite wines, what else really would you expect?
Over this time I have learnt exactly how wine really comes to form, understood the processes and most importantly gotten to know where this love and passion for fermented grape juice really comes from.
