It has been many a year since I have visited Edinburgh, but it is still as beautiful as ever. So rife with history and pride, the castle stands tall over all the lands below.
I went to visit a fellow Canadian friend who now lives there and had a lovely time.
While we were there, we went to check out a local restaurant in Leith called Roseleaf that was full of ambience, delicious food, tasty drams and the most amusing host. That, and our dinner table was shared with Mr. Potato Head.
There were board games on the side boards, hats hung on pegs all over the place and tea pots. In a bar.
We found out the reason for this; you can order their special “Pot-tail” concoctions and share them with a friend. They get served in a teapot and a couple of champagne flutes, and then you get to pick out a hat to wear and enjoy a “Mad Hatter’s T party!
Check them out if ever you find yourself in Edinburgh, highly recommended!

In wine there is truth. This blog is about my own musings, from the very beginnings....
In my very first wine experience, I did not even like the smell of wine. I loved the tanks, hoses, and barrels but plugged my nose while walking around the winery. In reality, this wine ninja was all of 5 years of age and had many years to go before falling under the allure of wine.
Flash forward a few years, I was culinary bound, learning about flavours, origins and the land and then discovered the concept of Wine pairings. My mind was blown :O! I needed to learn all I could, so I took a chance and applied at 3 wineries. I started at my first choice one on an entry level position, but I have never looked back. I grew with the winery, experiencing different aspects and later growing with the company in management in all aspects of retail and also in sales.
Though I have done schooling for other things artistic in nature, I have always circled back to wine, the siren to my career. I have my ISG diploma, are WSET Certified and strive to learn all I can, taking my WSET Diploma with a goal in sight.
This is a place where I will share my true impressions, experiences, tastings, recipes (gluten free as I am a celiac), and thoughts not of anyone else.
In vino veritas, the quest for knowledge never ends.
