Greetings

This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Orange Wine 2014 - Final Bottle (A2), 8th-9th June 2016

Night on a Bare Mountain is a satisfying piece. It is exciting both to play and listen to, tricky without being impossible and the last section (in which the bassoons are silent) is beautiful. We played it at WYSO on Wednesday, came home and opened a bottle of orange wine. It being a mid-week bottle, half was left until Thursday, and then polished off while eating beanlash.

The wine was unremarkable, without that being a criticism, but so too were the evenings on which it was consumed.
