Most any conversation is delicious when coupled with friendship and a glass of wine. Whatever the topic, be it current events over a soft style Syrah, an opinion about a snuggle-up cozy while sipping a full-bodied Merlot, or a simple debate about whether or not to pair tomorrow’s Christmas day leftovers with a Pinot Grigio, the wine, the bottle, and the glass all add up to a soft and sophisticated celebration.

My favorite chats involve interesting characters who drive story lines that twist and surprise the reader. For the nonfiction moment, a shared bottle of wine adds flair when unraveling the intent of a well written article. Later, embrace the quiet, the tranquil, create your moment.
