I was excited that my new friend, Nicole, is in the wine business and invited me to her event today for Satyre wines. I really (!) hate riding in the car, but it was worth it when we got there. I met lots of people. Many of them, of course, told me how handsome I am. Clearly, this was a smart and observant group of people!
I made the rounds, and I rested a bit while Mom and Dad did some tasting. I know that part of wine tasting is swirling the wine in the glass and smelling it first. *I* have a Super Sniffer as evidenced by my title in nose work (Level 1, Interiors). I asked Mom if I could do some sniffing of the wine, and she agreed to let me sniff as long as I promised to keep my tongue out of her glass. It was hard to do once I smelled the yummy wine, but it was FUN to sniff.
I had a really good nose for the vermentino, a white Italian varietal. In fact, every time someone came by with a glass of it, I turned my head and sniffed. It smelled a little bit like the ocean. Mom didn’t let me taste it, but she said it had some notes of salinity. I *told* you I had a good nose!
Before I left, I got to pose with the beautiful and talented Nicole. In addition to being a sommelier, she is a dog mom, so she gets how important we furry people are. Beyond that, she understands how amazing I am, so I was happy to pose with her.
All in all, it was a great day. It was even worth being in the car. Tomorrow I’ll have to share about meeting The Goat.
