Default A boating story, wine, perspective...........LOL

My wife and I like wine....and collect some and drink some. Some high-end wines are hard to come by due to limited availability. My wife has some amazing client connections and so I get to meet some interesting people and do some pretty amazing events. One guy I met last year at the RR Car Of The Year event was a winemaker by the name of Jayson Woodbridge with Hundred Acre. We like his wine too and is a super guy.

Anyway......many vineyards send out letters about the latest release of their wines normally telling you all this boring stuff about the making of it, the weather, the grapes, the color, reviews and blah blah blah. I received such a letter from Hundred Acre in September and it was 5 pages long and I didn't read it at the time. I figured it was the typical boring stuff and I would read it some time while sitting on the can.

Cleaning my desk last weekend I happened to pick it up and started to read it. The first paragraph caught me and I realized that this letter was different. What a crack up! I really enjoyed reading it and wanted to share it, so I hope you enjoy it too.

Great letter Nort, seems like a guy who likes what he is doing.
I checked the LCBO website, looks like Hundred Acre would have to be a special order up here.....
