Beavis and Butthead Enjoy Fine Champagne

BarrelAuger.JPGWell, I may be late reporting my New Year’s Eve endeavors, but it’s the thought that counts. Oh wait, that’s about Christmas or whatever.

Anyway, I spent NYE in a log house in St. Helena. We ate, drank and were generally merry, playing with my friend’s two tiny chihuahuas and experimenting with different firewood. (The verdict: Don’t get any of those particle board logs that look like an Ikea table leg. They fall apart, roll out of the fireplace and nearly set fire to your rented wicker chairs. We prefer Duraflame Crackleflame logs. Crackly.)

We also visited my favorite winery, V. Sattui, where we learned that barrel augers are for “boring bung holes in wine barrels.”

There is nothing worse than a boring bung hole in your wine barrel.

On that note, Happy New Year!
