Mine is one of the few jobs that permits you to pour a glass of wine, whiskey or beer at 9.30am. I have no problem with the concept of a dry January, but it is not really practical for a wine writer. Padraig O’Morain’s thought-provoking article in the Irish Times health supplement on dry January rang a few bells for me. My own trigger is to pour a glass of wine at about 6.30pm, when I start preparing dinner. A delicious, lightly sparkling drink with a lovely spicy kick and a lip-smacking dry finish.
