Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.
I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

The Epic Cellar: Groundwork Grenache
Another really super, affordable, Grenache. This one from the house of Sans Liege. One person described it as having... ...aromas
of mulberry, plum and pomegranate. On the palate it is rich and densely
flavored with notes of dark red berry fruit, spice, earth and cracked
pepper. It has high acidity, firm tannins, and a persistent finish. I would merely say that this lovely Grenache brings loads of flavor layers and is a wonderful accompaniment to cheese or hearty Autumn or Winter foods. Or the perfect accompaniment to an empty wine glass and a burning fire in the grate. Around $20. Get some now before I drink it all for you...
