One of the most poignant moments of the year is the last week of August. There comes that first sense of ‘chill’, plus the heavy dew on the morning grass.
We find the best way to deal with this is a bottle of white wine, taken just as the warmth of the afternoon has begun to ebb.
We spend the time it takes to sip the wine recalling the high points of the summer, thanking it for restoring us and fortifying our bodies against the ordeal of the coming winter.
