This month we had 70 winery updates and 53 wineries releasing wine.

I hope everyone had a great holiday and pulled some special bottles from your cellar to share with friends and family.

My favorite wine shop/wine tasting place, Vino Sapiens put their little truck in their shop so of course, Satish and I had to jump in. It’s very safe... if you stay in the wine shop.

The weather in Paris is currently chilly, overcast, and gloomy. Last week, there was snow, and the temperature has consistently hovered around minus 0 Celsius, reaching highs of only 3 degrees. January tends to be the least favorable month in Paris. Fortunately, today the sun made an appearance, significantly brightening the mood. The impact of sunlight on one's well-being becomes more apparent after consecutive cloudy days.

And now, onto the wine releases...
