Will you be bringing in the New Year with a toast on Sunday night? If so, what beverage will be in your glass?



Hard liquor?


Or a non-alcohol beverage?

Personally, my drink of choice will be my favourite wine of 2017.

No, not a Portuguese wine, though they would take positions 2, 3 and 4 of my year’s faves.

This year’s top honour goes to California’s Cupcake Vineyards and, in particular, its Black Forest Decadent Red.

This wine lives up to its label: It is decadently delicious, “dripping with rich, deep flavours . . .”

How about you? What was your favourite wine of the year? And what will you be drinking on New Year’s Eve?
