The great news around Wiz Manor keeps coming! The final piece of my fireplace renovation was completed last week. So in just over a year, I went from this non-functional and downright dangerous before:
To this wonderful after:
Thanks to the stonework specialist from St. John’s Fireplace! And the custom mantel is from CustomCorners on Etsy.
Even my cohort can’t help but be a little impressed.
So naturally, this calls for a celebration, don’t you think?
I opened up my latest WineFolly club shipment that focuses on less common regions and chose this 2020 Bruma Plan B Tinto Valle de Guadalupe.
The Guadalupe Valley is in Baja California, Mexico, and produces 90% of the country’s wines. The club notes say the climate is a bit warmer than Tuscany and the southern Rhône. It’s a blend of six grapes, mostly mourvèdre, grenache and malbec.
Wow, this is juicy and not too much structure. The tannins are soft, and it’s got great acidity. The finish lasts for ages. Great sipping wine, but would go great with a beef filet. I would most enthusiastically buy this again!
Curling up by the fire with the dog and this wine sure made me happy. I hope it does you too.
Gorgeous fireplace and definitely deserving of vino! Like reading about what you’re up to and drinking 😊
