I just had the girliest weekend ever and I swear I have #noregrets. Primrose and I went out with a few of our dear friends to do some wine tasting, get manicures, and just total gossip about our love lives non-stop. It was so amazing and EXACTLY the kind of weekend I needed to relax and detox.
You see recently things with A have been a little rough. He’s been acting a little distant ever since I told him he needed to choose between me or his wife… and I was seriously worried for a while that I wouldn’t be the one! Luckily after this weekend I feel revived and ready to win him over. Relationships can be so daunting but honestly with a little hard work they can become something truly amazing.
Anyways! Back to the point of all this: I learned something so amazing while wine tasting this weekend. It’s called vino touching and it’s the hottest new trend around. A couple of high end wine bars that we went to were all recommending it!
The concept is sooo simple- you just dip your fingers into your glass and feel the temperature and texture of the wine BEFORE you drink. It totally 100% changed my wine tasting experience. You see, by exposing an extra sense to the experience of the tasting, you allow your mind to open up and see all the facets of the drink.
My favorite to touch was a 2009 Bordeaux from St. Emilion. The temperature was cool- but not chilled- while the texture was fluid and liquiform. It also had an even paced drip down my fingers when I held them vertically (the guy pouring told us that was the sign of a great wine).
Anyone in the LA area should try this immediately! My only recommendation is wash your hands first 😉
