Some Decisions are Easier than Others

November 22, 2010

Craig1Now that another year of Selection Limited Edition Wine Tastings is over one thing I realize is that some decisions are easier than others. When talking to some of the 1000+ people who attended our tastings they were certainly always struggling with some of the following questions:

Which is your favourite Limited Edition Wine?

Which food pairing did you like best?

Which Limited Edition wines are your going to order?

The answers ranged from ‘I have no idea’ to ‘It’s down to 2’ or ‘I know which ones, I just don’t know how many’…


Do you hear bells ringing?

On Thursday night however one decision was very easy. About 10 minutes into the tasting portion of the evening the fire alarms at the Victoria Inn started ringing. Every person looked around- realized there was no imminent danger- and then looked at the wine glass in their hand.

The decision was made…

“I’m pretty sure there’s no danger- but I’m absolutely sure that I’m tasting great wine…

…I’m not leaving.”

After about 10 minutes of very loud ringing the alarms stopped ( it was of course a false alarm) and everyone went back to the harder decisions in life like…

… ‘How many Limited Edition wines am I going to order?’
