It is with a heavy heart that I have canceled my upcoming trip to Thailand. Visions of fresh spicy seafood and gentle waves have been smashed by closed airports and grenades.
I have spent the last few days scrambling to rebook airline tickets and cancel hotel reservations.
Ahhh, so where to go? As much as I love the people, culture and food of many Asian countries, after the recent events in Mumbai and Bangkok, I am regretfully letting go of any Asian travel plans for the moment.
So it's off to Paris where I will explore all these smoking hot natural wine bars!
Hopefully a short exploration of the Loire if time and budget permit.
So I started celebrating my new holiday plans last night with a beautiful biodynamic wine from the Loire, just to get in the spirit of things to come.
Jo Landron Amphibolite Nature Muscadet 2007
Natural yeasts, hand harvested, rested on the lees, organic grapes.
Immensely refreshing light wine, bright acids with lemon verbena flavors, some leesy richness with a beeswax character
Please email me all your Paris faves, especially if wine or food related.
