I haven't had a drop of wine for over two weeks now because I have been dealing with a nasty summer cold. But on the way home from work tonight I stopped at the Napa Wine Company (NWC) to pick up a growler of something to pair with dinner. My nose is better.
After an initial investment of $10.00 for the bottle, an ever-changing selection of wines-on-tap can be had for a mere $10.00 per refill. The NWC growler-programme also comes with a 'Frequent Filler' punch-card: for every five refills the sixth is free. To pair with tonight's chicken dinner I chose a rosé of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. Very, very nice. And fun. And a truly genius idea. Growl on.
