NYD Wine

Every once in a while, especially on holidays, we like to drink wine from outside our region. On New Year's Day, we had this Séguret red, a Côtes du Rhône Villages. It's made mostly with grenache, syrah, and mourvèdre grapes, but can include grapes of several other varieties. It was tasty and a nice change from our everyday wine, which is mostly gamay, cabernet, and malbec.

The wine went well with our meal of sausages and black-eyed peas. Taken with the Pixle 6.

Having this wine made us think about when we visited the village of Séguret. I have a clear memory of being there, but no solid memory of when. The village hugs the foothills of a mountain formation called les Dentelles de Montmirail and is a favorite stop for tourists in the region. Other well-know wine villages in the area include Gigondas and Sablet.

I got Christmas put away yesterday, as planned. The lights were pretty, but nearly three weeks is enough. I also made a batch of cranberry/pecan biscotti. The photos of them I took didn't work, so I'll try again today.


  1. Blogging has made it so much easier to keep track of things. It’s become my diary. If it was done since October 2010, I can tell you the exact day.

  2. I'll look for a wine from Séguret around here.

  3. Happy New Year, Walt! Your Saint Sylvestre treats looked really good!
