New look! Same great taste!

And only half the calories! (no, wait ...) So here it is, Post Number 100. If I had a bottle of Cristalle on hand, I think I'd crack it open to celebrate.

This has been a fun year, learning and drinking and tasting and drinking some more. I've had a lot of positive feedback about this blog; thanks so much to all my readers who have encouraged me and provided me with comments.

The "relaunch" of Second Ferment has been a test of patience; I'm not too smrt when it comes to HTML coding or RSS feeds or what-not. I write and I drink wine. Isn't that enough?? It doesn't help that my nit-picking tendencies about packaging seems to have jumped from Tetra Paks and stelvin closures to this blog. The fonts and colours have to be just so, the pictures can't be too big, wait a minute, THE ALIGNMENT OF THAT COLUMN IS OFF!! (And then I wonder why my daughter has a conniption if I put the wrong place mats out for dinner. She couldn't have possibly inherited that from me ... no, no.) Anyway, my OCD aside, I'd love to know what you think about the new look. Drop me a line or click on the "comments" link.

I'm just shy of my first year as a wine blogger, and I'm loving every minute of it. Stay tuned for posts from Algonquin's Old World Wines; the next Vintages release; more capers from Hubby and the Doodle; and plenty of new wine to try. Cheers!

PS - And how 'bout that nifty logo???


  1. The blog looks great B!! I like the new colours and I love the picture at the top and the new Logo! It is all very YOU.

    Miss you!

  2. Impressive!! It looks great B! Love your artwork in the latest blog and the new Logo is terrific! Good job! I will not ask how long it took you until you were satisified with the new look!! ;)
