Our Saber Crisis #MWWC18
Monthly Wine Writing Challenge 18 #MWWC18
After several months away, I’m jumping back into the game with the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge group. The premise is simple: a friendly challenge among the group to write on the topic for the month. Votes are tallied (remember, no wagering) and a winner emerges. The winner chooses the next month’s challenge. This month’s theme? CRISIS
Our Saber Crisis
As many wine enthusiasts, we love sparkling wine. We serve it whenever guests visit, we open a bottle at the slightest reason to celebrate or when we need a little encouragement after a tough day. (click on any photo for slide show)
Sabering around the World
We cut our sabering (sciabola) teeth in Italy. Back in Italy again, our daughter, Casey, is introduced to the fine art.
More Sabering Fun
Great use for the slo-mo feature on my phone to catch the moment.
It had to happen eventually. Was the bottle not adequately chilled? Was the Laetitia neck just too delicate? Was it Julie’s technique? What was it?
To add insult to injury, Julie gave some blood.
So here we stand, in the midst of our sabering #crisis. Do we get back on the horse?
