True Wine Lover 8.

What was the first thing Noah did when he docked the ark? Right off the boat he planted a vineyard. Smart man. Noah then preceded to get nekkid and drank until he was, well, drunk! Can you blame him? I'd be driven to drink also: I can barely assemble an Ikea coffee table without needing a stiff glass of Cabernet sauvignon afterwards to sooth my frayed nerves. Imagine being required to build an ark to carry all those animals, just two Vinodogs are enough for me to deal with.
It seems as if Noah was the Bible's first viticulturist. Good man. If I was caught in a deluge of biblical proportions, I'd hope that I would have the foresight to take grape seeds with me, better still grapevine cuttings.
After all that building, herding, sailing, and planting Noah probably had earned a well deserved break. What better way to relax than to sit down and enjoy a delicious glass of wine from your own vineyard paired with, perhaps, a tasty ham sandwich.

Good for Noah, I suppose after reaching the grand old age of 600 years, he deserved to 'float his boat'.
No better way of celebrating than a good old drink of vino...
So, cheers to you all in The Napa Valley from all of us, here at Chez Trubes.

Merry Christmas Vino Girl and all good wishes for a prosperous New Year.

Vinogirl, this is very good writing!
Writing, photographing, biology-zoology-even Ikea architecture/construction, history all these packaged in a "renaissance vinogirl", Now I'm exhausted!
