Popping my Ruché Cherry; Part Two

     Last we spoke, I was about to pop open my first bottle of Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato. We'll get to that in a moment, but allow me to digress, as I am wont to do.
     A year ago, the Il Gatto Ubriaco blog started in a somewhat fitful manner, before it fell by the wayside. Then, along came 2012, and with it, a healthy jolt of motivation and a re-visioning as Champagne Floozy. This year I've also had the good fortune to fall in love with an awesome man who happens to earn a living as a professional filmmaker and freelance videographer. When he suggested a video blog, well, I can't say I didn't jump.
    So today I introduce to you, dear reader, the first episode of the Champagne Floozy video blog.
    I want to extend an enormous thank you to this episode's guests, Dave and Ryan, colleagues for whom I have the utmost respect and admiration.  When I approached them about participating in a tasting panel, I knew they would enjoy the opportunity to taste something completely different, but I truly appreciate their willingness to submit to the prying eye of the camera. 
     I want to thank my wonderful fella, Troy, as well, for taking the time to direct, produce, film, edit, and perform all of the wizardry that good and interesting video work requires. I think he did an excellent job, and I am very excited about the future of this blog.
     Now, back to the Ruché...

     You can also watch the episode here on YouTube.
