You may have noticed my occasional mention of dealing with stress by pouring a glass of wine. I heard a news story last night as I was dozing off that jolted me awake: the European wine harvest has been hit hard by the recent drought conditions and prices are going up. But the California harvest has been “epic.” So there’s good news if you like California wines and bad news if you like European ones.
On a related note, BevMo’s (annual? semi-annual?) 5 cent wine sale is going on right now, but ends soon. This weekend might be a good time to stock up!
