I spent my New Years up in Chester with my friend Claire drinking ALL the rum. Days later its Wednesday, I’m back in the midst of work and life and stuff and suddenly its just alittle depressing after all the fun festivities of Christmas and New Years.
This is why January is the saddest month of the year- you meet the slump. Its dark, miserable and cold outside. Don’t get me wrong I applaud any one willing to give up anything in the first month of the year but it’s not for me. Though I won’t be painting the town various shades of red this month I will be having the odd tipple, usually on the Wednesday!
The first wine of the year is one that blisters of memories of my twenties, but more than that its a good wine to start the year with. This wine is as easy on your wallet as it is on your tastebuds and whisks you into a subtle vanilla whipped frenzy.
The wine in question is Campo Viejo Temperanillo, (www.campoviejo.com) you’ve probably seen it in your local shop. Its definitely worth a try. I paired it with pizza and a night watching Jessica Jones on netflix.

Since starting the blog there are two passions I haven’t yet talked about which are wine and tea.
I rarely drink during the week unless I’m out socially but when it comes to Wednesdays, well Wednesdays are wine days! I’m going to try and post every week about a wine and or some other type of alcohol fuelled beverage and if anyone wants to send in suggestions feel free!
I was meant to post this yesterday but I had the kind of headache that leaves you feeling as though you’re at the epicentre of doom. Instead I attempted to watch Sleepwalk with me (great film) in bed with a cup of lemon and ginger tea.
The first wine I’m going to review is Boy meets Girl a soulful Australian shiraz cabernet from Naked WInes. Naked wines are a customer funded business that provides wines from independent winemakers. This usually involves paying a monthly subscription that you can save up to get a box of really awesome wines.
I’ll be honest, every single red wine I’ve had from them has been amazing. Boy meets girl is smooth yet bold and goes down far too easy for my liking!
Please send in suggestions. Happy drinking!!
