I used to have an active nightlife on the weekend, without fail! Nowadays, I don't go to clubs a whole lot anymore like before (go out by 10 pm every Saturday night and would stay out till the wee hours of the morning), but just on occasion here and there.

What a night, what a night!!!!


As I grew older, things changed, little by little that I hardly notice. I found myself sitting at home on a Saturday night or spent the day fattening myself up. However, that does not mean that my life is completely boring and I should just stay at home punching myself in the face. Once in a while, I enjoy a relaxed evening out with exquisite food and a wide selection of good wines to enhance my taste buds. A great meal can become a fantastic meal if you have the right wine to drink with it!



"Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life's most civilized pleasures."

I was told that Bajo Aragon wines are produced mostly from red and white Grenache, in most instances from centennial wines, with low yield but very high alcohol and tannins. Their Grenache whites are quite powerful, ideal for a fish casserole or a white meat dish. They are strong and full bodied; especially those which have been barrel fermented for a short period, creating an intense flavor of fruits with a very interesting border of oak.

The reds are rich, full of red berries and with long after taste. Excellent with casseroles, stews and all types of red meats. Ventus's wild berry and cinnamon aroma make it a delightful wine for everyday enjoyment!



"What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end with a smile."

When I was young (not that I am that old) I would be out every weekend at a night club. Wine? when I was young no one drank wine.

These days I stay in at the weekends and nothing makes me happier than a bottle of red wine. Even now I find myself in shops saying " I like those slippers".....

Ah getting old, it happens to us all

I used to be like that Mon.

When Saturday Night came, then i had this itchy punggung couldnt stay at home. My legs started shaking (that was the clue). Ahahaha.

Used to go out and came back at wee hours in the morning.

Then suddenly, for no apparent reason, on one weekend, i decided to stop.

And just like that... owh, those were the days.

Right now i just enjoy having great companies. : )

Rizal said... @ 22/12/09 12:19 AM
