As someone who adores notebooks of any shape or form, as someone who wants to teach herself about wine and is convinced that keeping wine tasting notes is the only way to go, you can imagine my joy at finding this darling little notebook at Lavinia, the wine super-store close to La Madeleine.
Small enough to be slipped in your purse or shirt pocket, it has a slim spiral for easier jotting, and a nice cover design for easier boasting. Each page has neat little sections for you to write the characteristics of the wine (year, appellation, producer, price), your actual tasting notes, and food pairing suggestions. (And yes, you do need to get to the point and use a teeny tiny handwriting, but hey.)
They happened to give them away at a wine tasting event I attended, but I am hoping they continue to do so: maybe it's just the notebook fiend in me talking, but isn't this the coolest non-drinkable freebie they could come up with?
