Hole in One

 

This month we celebrate Don Quixote and all of his wild adventures. Napa Valley is a great place to take an adventure and celebrate it with wine. This is all about my favorite adventure with wine!

My greatest adventures with wine always happen on the golf course.  The course is not so important… they all have the usual water hazards and sand traps that are perfectly places to rob me of my golf balls.  But on my quest for the hole in one on a three par or shooting for an eagle I always bring some wine to help soften the blows of shanking and slicing my shots.  I have many wines at the tip of my fingers but my “golf buddy” is the Black Label Cab.  The bottle fits nicely in the cup holder of most golf carts and I like to imbibe my cab along the course in a very casual red solo cup. 

 

 

So many times have I approached the tee with visions of excellence and carefully choreographed swings only to have reality hit and find the end result nowhere the perfection I imagined.  In these cases a slow sip of my cab is like a friendly pat on the back.  Sometimes I hit the ball from the tee and  it looks like I know what I am doing!  The ball flies straight and true and lands with finesse on the green placing me within feet of the hole.  In these instances every sip from my cup is a celebration and encouragement for what lies ahead on the course.

 

Note: Don't forget to share with us your favorite Adventure with Wine!
