POP! POW!!


My wife tried to open a sparkling wine last night, and was lucky to escape injury when the cork vigorously flew from the bottle and hit the ceiling. When I recounted that cautionary tale, a co-worker piped in with a cork-cum-surface-to-air missile story that also occurred Tuesday night. So, enjoy our selections of sparkling wine for the holidays, but drink safely: make sure you aim the cork away from your face and hold on tight. Perhaps tonight I’ll indulge in a Duckhorn Merlot for my health, as red wine appears to fight Alzheimer’s and heart disease, and there’s no need to duck a flying Duckhorn cork. Cheers!
