The scars of a sweet paradise #MWWC34

The scars of a sweet paradise, a story by Ela Wine Lady, an entry for a Monthly Wine Writing Challenge #MWWC34

[This is an entry for this month’s Wine Writing Challenge #MWWC34]   With love and respect to those who try to forget.   Michelle was not, what you would call, a wine lover. She was neither a wine person, nor any other alcohol lover at all. She was a very sober 40-something woman, unsuccessfully trying to write her seventh novel. It was supposed to be another bestseller, yet since over a year Michelle hasn’t written even one […]

5 alcohol and wine phobias you probably had no idea existed!

Alcohol and wine phobias you had no idea existed - by Wine Lady.

‘Novinophobia means a fear of running out of wine or having no wine’. I bet you have seen this sentence somewhere on wine glasses, pillows, mugs or t-shirts for wine lovers. I also bet it made you laugh. Because it is so funny for a wine lover to say ‘my friend, I suffer from the disease called novinophobia, so please refill my glass with fine wine!’ And although this makes us laugh, there are a few real […]

Proverbs for wine lovers

Have some fun with proverbs for wine lovers created by Wine Lady

I like to play games. I like the word games and I play with words as much as I can. It’s easier with my own language, but a little bit of ‘just kidding’ in another language is funny as well, especially when I am not sure if I really say what I mean. I have a lot of fun with popular proverbs, which took on a new meaning and became my famous proverbs for wine lovers ;) […]

10 most beautiful wine moments in life

10 most beautiful moments in life of wine lovers - a wonderful sharing by Wine Lady

My 10 most beautiful wine moments are mostly my ‘first times’ with wine. When I started my adventure with wine I was pure and innocent, such as empty pages of the book that are ready to be filled in with words that tell a story. Over the years I’ve been writing down in this ‘book’ my new experiences, wine knowledge, dreams and memories. They form my wine story. They are the fondation of my wine passion. They […]

2Bobule – Once again innocently about wine

a wine film review of 2Bobule - innocently about wine, delivered to you by Wine Lady

I loved the Bobule (2008) film. It was not only funny but also inspiring, idyllic and simply beautiful. I was very excited while the sequel, 2Bobule, came out. I’ve been waiting for another dose of great humour, Czech wine, and beautiful Moravian landscapes. After the first film, my expectations were very high. I think they were too high…     Let’s start from the beginning: The Story After Honza took over his grandfather’s vineyards, he’s trying to […]

One day in Bordeaux… the travel that changed my life

one day, my first day, in Bordeaux - the trip to France that changed my life forever - Wine Lady shares her story

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, there was a beautiful princess. She had a beautiful big house surrounded by beautiful landscapes. She didn’t have to work, she didn’t have to worry about anything, and she was never sad or angry. She was eating only natural food, always beautifully served. She could spend her days in the massive garden, lying down on the beautifully green grass, talking to animals and flowers and enjoying the […]

I will be honest with you guys: I haven’t been too excited with this year’s En Primeur 2015 as I’ve been so busy lately I had no time to think about the preparation for the Bordeaux most famous wine event.

Today is Saturday, a day after all the tastings have been finished, and finally I have some time to sit down […]
