I can't believe 2019 is almost over! It seem just like yesterday since we moved to our new location and we couldn't be happier about the move. We are thankful for you our dear customers that have traveled with us for the move and look forward to more great wines, events and travels for 2020. We're looking at wine dinners at nearby towns, jiujitsu wine Vlog, more wine trips and who knows what. So have a holly jolly Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukkah and winter solstice. Speak soon.
December 20, 2019. I am now a purple belt in bjj. My lineage is me, Ishmael Bentley - 3rd degree black belt, Pedro Sauer - 8th degree black belt, Rickson Gracie, Helio Gracie, Carlos Gracie and Mitsuyo Maeda. Now when I talk my smack about jiu jitsu you can feel confident that a certified middle of the road jiu jitsu guy is talking. Catching up to my vino skills baby! Coming soon also is our first intern at Wine Republic. She's be introducing herself in a month or so, so stay tuned. Take care. Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Cheers to our good friends and Rear Naked Chokes for those that are not. See you soon.
I'm so irregular posting, sorry. So to recap a little since I've written. I placed silver in my weight division and the absolute at the Twin Cities Open/Ibjjf tourney last month. I'm lame because I was overweight and had to run a manure-load before my first fight. Dumb, I know but I love food and wine. Sue me. I ate a ton of food at Thanksgiving and pretty much since. I will let myself food self destruct until Christmas and then chill until new year. But one of the cool things I did was to go on a podcast done by one of my daughter's classmate's mom who is a wellness coach. Kinda like a movement coach but for the mind. We talk wine, and wine related things.
