Dear Wine Lover,
By the time you receive this newsletter, the holidays will
be in full swing. It is so hard to keep your eye on the
ball when this time of the year comes. Many Christmas
carol lyrics romanticize the “hustle and bustle” of the
holidays, when reality seems to creep in and make it
downright impossible to get it all done.
But we have to remain vigilant as to the reason for the
season. Short of a religious conversation, there truly is
something special about the holiday season that is not
tied to gift giving, not tied to spending money, not tied to
how many lights you put on the house. In fact, there is a
certain amount of magic…a certain amount of love…a
certain amount of joy that ticks up during the holiday
season. I can’t explain it...but I love it.
Maybe I am just getting too old…maybe I am becoming
hypersensitive to emotional happenings; maybe it is just
me. Or maybe there really is a Santa Claus and maybe
in some remote village in some remote snow-laden
town there is a snowman who can play with the best of
them. And it could be that there is a red-nosed reindeer.
Just sayin’.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Paul Kalemkiarian
Owner/Cellarmaster
