Last night, our wine club met and discussed Greek wines. Since 1600 BC, the Greeks have been making wines from over 300 indigenous varieties. They have enjoyed wine with food and family and have used it for trade.

Wine's evolution is an interesting history lesson, but our wine club is proving to be "one for the books!" The most novice member was the most prepared for our discussion. He had thoroughly researched, found phonetic pronunciations for difficult varieties and regions and although his palate is still evolving, he gave me great hope for the future of this club.

Embracing new things and sharing a common interest is a good equation for growth.
