Advice is given to use by many people in our lives. Our parents, our teachers, our mentors, friends and strangers can share a few words that can impact us for ever. Perhaps these are words we heed on a daily basis or we try to integrate into our lifestyle. What advice do you carry with you? In my recent column in the Napa Valley Register I shared some of the advice that winemakers have shared with me when interviewing them for the Wine Soundtrack podcast. Perhaps you have been given some of the same advice or perhaps some of these words will inspire you. Either way, may this be a wonderful new year! ************** When I was a little girl, my mom said something to me that I would never forget. I was nervous about going to a party and whether I would know people and have fun. She told me that you make your own good time. I could go with a negative attitude and would likely not have fun. Or I could go with a positive attitude and see what would happen.
This advice is something that I have carried with me throughout my life, and I approach everything I do with a positive attitude and an open mind.
Welcome to the Republic of Pink, a land where the Department of Happiness wants you to be happy. To me, rosé wine brings me happiness and in the sea of rosés, one that stands out is the Republic of Pink Rosé. A young brand, Jason and Julia Martin are on a mission to make the best rosé possible. Read my story, which originally appeared in the Napa Valley Register, about starting a new brand in a relatively crowded category. Sit back and enjoy your journey to the Republic of Pink. Everywhere we look, we can find rosé wines. The shelves at the stores are lined with bottles of rosé wines and restaurant by-the-glass lists always have at least one to offer. It seems like every domestic winery has added a rosé wine to their portfolio.
In a sea of rosé wines, there are so many choices. It is hard to imagine why someone would want to create a new brand of rosé wines but that is exactly what Jason and Julia Martin did.
