My favourite Drop

Regular readers of my blog know that Chateauneuf du Pape is one of my favourite wines. Christmas Eve and our daughter Carol-Ann and son-in-law David joined us for our Christmas celebrations including dinner with, you guessed it, a bottle of CNdP.

It was wonderful.


  1. Lovely! Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you all.

  2. That should have been an inclusion on my 'things I am glad I did when young', that is pulling out a cork from a wine bottle. While there is now a generation who don't know how a record player works, or life before mobile phones, there will soon be one that hasn't experienced pulling out a cork.

  3. David!
    I presume that my Chrissy present of a similar bottle will be delivered today by
    Some people, no names mentioned, are just too SPOILT! And worse, they GLOAT!
    Merry Christmas to all at the Daisy Hill "estate" and that includes the choir singing
    crows as they belt out a fine rendition of Beethoven's 5th!

  4. It was a nice drop but not as nice as a hug from Carol-Ann.

  5. Sounds like a nice time with your family and a glass of wine! Happy New Years to you and your family!

  6. Dann Prost, auf das neue Jahr! Alles Gute!
    Mit Humor geht vieles besser im Leben.
    "Broken windscreen", ist eine lustige Idee :-)
    Einbruch, Diebstahl, Gewalt und Vergewaltigung haben in der Schweiz stark zugenommen, besonders in der Nordwestschweiz. Die Gefängnisse sind überfüllt und ein Polizist hat 100 Anzeigen gleichzeitig zu bearbeiten. Die offenen Grenzen zeigen hier leider Nachteile.
    Das Thema "Ausländer" stimmt einem nachdenklich. Mehr und mehr sind wir verunsichert. Wenn der Respekt vor dem Mitmensch fehlt, ist ein Miteinander schwierig, egal von welchem Land.
    Wir Schweizer haben noch viel zu lernen, genauso wie die anderen.
    Liebe Grüsse

  7. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing it with us!!
    Miss you
