The perfect way to end my day is with a lavender scented bubble bath, a great book or a good movie, and a glass of wine (Chardonnay when I’m craving white, Merlot or Zinfandel if I’m feeling red more). It’s actually the way I end most nights. As a result of my nightly practice, I’ve become known as a bit of a wino amongst my peers. They’re not wrong, I do LOVE my wine. In fact, I’ve compiled a list of places where it’s totally acceptable to be who we are, winos. So here you are my fellow wine enthusiasts, 5 places of refuge just for you….
