Why you ask?

Undertaking according to the American Heritage Dictionary:


  1. 1. A task or assignment undertaken; a venture
  2. 2. A guaranty, engagement or promise.
  3. 3. The Profession or duties of a funeral director

Wine according to Dictionary.com:


  1. the fermented juice of grapes, made in may varieties, such as red, white, sweet, dry, still and sparkling, for use as a beverage, in cooking, in religious rites, etc., and usually having an alcoholic content of 14% or less.

So, this blog is going to be a major undertaking, by me, a undertaker about fermented grapes, which in my opinion, is the greatest beverage born of mother earth.

Pop that cork, pour that glass, give it a swirl and may this blog, along with every other blog, open your palate to the wonderful world of wine.
