I love a good glass (or three) of wine.

I love the taste of a Californian chardonnay or the ease of an Italian montepulciano. I enjoy the social aspect of bonding with friends – old and new – while drinking. I think alcohol is invaluable in having a good holiday while overseas. I crave that sense of relaxation that a drink brings after an awful day at work.

It's winter soon. If you're in the capital like me, or otherwise outside of Auckland, you're already experiencing single-digit temperatures in the evenings. It's cold and nobody wants to go out
