Uncorked: Art of Wine features pleasing list of choices

posted: 06/17/2015 1:51 a.m. Discuss

The Art of Wine is one of my favorite wine functions. The annual three-day event benefits the Walton Arts Center's educational programs and offers wine enthusiasts the opportunity to sample hundreds of wines. Each year it continues to impress.

Happy birthday. There's wonderful kismet for this year's relationships. That said, nothing good comes of two people acting on impulse. Someone (you) will have to be the voice of reason. Is it possible to have a disciplined heart? Try and you'll be richly rewarded. It goes like this: money in July, adventure in August, personal success (after hard work) in November.
