October is Breast Cancer Awareness Montha time that many take an active role to raise money and awareness for this disease. Pink has become its trademark color, so I would like to take this opportunity to raise a glass of wine in a toast of remembrance and thanks to all who have been touched by this disease and to those who have devoted their life’s work to treat patients and find cures.

  1. I’m SO delighted you made kahlua! I hope your friends enjoy it!

  2. What a great idea to focus on Rosés for breast cancer awareness month…and so many excellent suggestions!

  3. Great list! I have never had the Bessert, but the Argyle is great (although a bit pricey). I should try the Tablas since I am a big fans of their other wines….

I would love to know your thoughts on this post!
