Day #152 of the year.

Chateau Des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved walking barefoot. First, my mother and now my hubby have nagged me to put on some shoes in the house. So, when I found out that June 1st is National Go Barefoot Day, I couldn’t contain my glee! To celebrate, a windmill flip, a grilled burger, and a bottle of Chateau des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent are in order at Brooklyn Bridge Park! This robust Grand Cru Beaujolais is a fantastic pairing for a chargrilled burger oozing with melty cheese and bacon; yes, this wine could be aged 10–20 years, but who has time to wait? Free your feet, find a patch of grass or a beach, treat yourself to a great glass of wine and enjoy some freedom now – cheers!
