Per Karlsson portrait Britt Karlsson portraitA few years back I read a detective novel that taught me a new expression (new for me) in Swedish. Not quite easy to translate but it goes something like this “oh, it’s a lot to deal with right now”. It indicated that you are getting a little bit too stressed out by circumstances. It was used by two policemen who at the same time had to drink coffee, interview a suspect, take of their shoes (as is customary when you visit someone’s home in Sweden), and answer the phone. That was “a lot to deal with”. Fortunately I don’t remember which book it was. (Not one of the best.)

But right now I almost feel inclined to use that same expression. It is a lot to deal with right now.

We have just returned home from an amazing trip to South America: the wine districts of Argentina, an incredible bus trip over the Andes, and then the wine regions of Chile (with several quite unique winery visits). Tomorrow we go to Vinisud, the wine show in the south of France, where we have been asked by the organisers to do two wine tastings and one conference. If you are going to Vinisud we hope to see you there. And when we return from the wine show we hop on a plane to go to South Africa.

It is indeed a lot to deal with right now.

That is why this month’s BKWine Brief is a bit shorter than usual.

But instead we can give you more updates than usual on our Facebook pages, with both pictures and videos, e.g. one when we pass the summits of the Andes. Here they are:

Do “like” our pages if you have not already do it.

And then we have:

We will be back in March!
