You are all quite poetic!

In honor of April being National Poetry Month, we challenged the participants in our Virtual Tasting Series to write a haiku related to wine.  The response was pretty amazing– full of clever, beautifully-worded poems that had 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third.  Enjoy!
