Happy Holidays from Windham Wines 2023

| Thoughts
Kitten Under Tree 2023

We are nearly at the end of another year. When we review the year, it is through our memory and, as Robert Burns reminds us, those memories are made within relationships– deaths, births, celebrations (weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, retirement) jobs, moves, trips, dinners, catastrophes. It is especially during the difficult times that our friendship and family connections are so very essential. I am grateful for my “trusty friends” who are always willing to offer me a hand and a “cup of kindness.” I hope my hand has been extended as steadfastly when they have needed it. When we get to be of a certain age, “auld land syne” extends back impressively and, if we are really fortunate, we are still connected to some of those “auld acquaintance.”

Happy Thanksgiving 2023 from Windham Wines

| Thoughts

Two things I love about Thanksgiving: one, spending the day with three generations of family, catching up on the growth and development of those young people, and all the ensuing chaos that accompanies the combined energy of children, dogs, and adults in the kitchen; and two, consciously practicing gratitude. It’s ironic that we need to be reminded to be thankful, given that expressing gratitude is associated with positive effects on our emotional health and strengthening interpersonal relationships.

October in Vermont – Wines for Fall from Windham Wines

October in Vermont

It is hard to believe that summer is over and yet the autumnal equinox is behind us and we are now 3 weeks into fall. If ever there was a year to query where summer went, it is 2023. But fall is here, like it or not, and Windham Wines has a selection wines perfectly calibrated to the season.

April 2023 – Responsible Wine Choices

| Thoughts

As I start this email in later mid-April, Frank and I are sitting outside enjoying our morning coffee together. It is not yet 7:00 a.m. While we love it, it is disconcerting and a reminder that global warming is real. The April issue of our newsletter always features “earth-friendly” wines as we welcome spring and are mindful of our deep connection to this magnificent planet. It has been remarkably forgiving of our disregard and even abuse. We owe it some care, including making consumer choices that consider the practices of the producers. Each of the wines we recommend this month is a product of environmentally-responsible farming and winemaking. It is our pleasure to work with these producers.

2022 Resolutions from Windham Wines

| Thoughts
Winter Field at Sunset

It is that time of year when we surround ourselves with family and our chosen families, and celebrate that we have each other. It is a time for self-reflection, for considering what is well in our lives and for taking responsibility for things that we might change for the better in ourselves, our relationships and our communities and resolving to work for those changes in the year ahead. Resolutions represent some of our self-identified goals for the year. We’ll probably fall short, but the new year provides the clean slate for a fresh start. We can at least start off resolute.

Thanks from Windham Wines
