Here’s a toast to Leap Day and to this new AAdvantage Miles Bonus Offer.
(BTW, I don’t think that this cat is going to leave a tip)
American Cellars Wine Club is offering up to 5,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you sign up for membership:
Join American Cellars Wine Club today and enjoy 6 bottles of hand-selected wine. This introductory half case is yours for just $41.94 or $6.99 per bottle plus FREE shipping – you save $69!
Plus earn 2,000 AAdvantage bonus miles with your first wine club shipment then earn 3,000 AAdvantage bonus miles with your second shipment.
Also, earn 5 AAdvantage miles for every dollar spent on all other wine club shipments and orders.
Now that we covered the wine, and the bonus miles, it’s time to get to the dirt.
I’ve been waiting for a good reason to share this video from the O’Connell family of winemakers. If you’re not familiar with them, Joe, Liz, and their son Ryan, moved their very American family from Boston to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France to pursue their dream of making wines.
Over the years, Ryan has put together some really funny and creative videos about life on the vineyard, food, and of course, wine.
Among his classics:
And this one:
Winemaker tastes dirt – True Vin de Terroir Tasting: dirt in a wine bottle
Ryan’s working in California now, and flies back and forth between Napa and the Languedoc (hopefully earning AAdvantage Miles).
If you’re a wine enthusiast, you might want to follow his observations about the winemaking differences between Napa and the Languedoc, or as he explains it:
“A young winemaker kidnapped from his vineyard in the Languedoc to learn the ways of the west coast wine business”
You can find his kid napa blog here.
