I've been trying to drink morewinefor a while.I know this is a weird thing to admit when many are embarking on Dry January or otherwise making resolutions to do the opposite,但是，更多地了解葡萄酒是完全符合我2019年的目标：成为更多的西班牙人。
I have a bit of a home-field advantage.其实我的家人是来自西班牙。I go there once a year,over the summer.But every time I come home to New York,I end up feeling like I'm not quite Spanish enough: I don't have an innate sense for making tortillas,我不会在中午午睡（我也不认为我会无动于衷，even if I had the lifestyle),and I don't drink wine in a way that makes my life better.As a native New Yorker,I've grown up with a knack for doing things that make my life harder—always running from point A to point B and getting immediately defensive when anyone gets in my way.No matter what I'm doing,不管是通勤还是是的，drinking wine,I'm rushing.That's not a thing in Spain,where there isn't so much running,so much rushing,so much trying to get drunk at a breakneck pace.那里的人只是are.
经过深思熟虑，I've concluded that the most attainable way to achieve this serene Spanish lifestyle is by drinking wine the way they do: slowly,cheerfully,而且经常。Maybe with a tortilla.
Yes,I set this as a personal goal for 2019.But I've unintentionally been preparing for it for weeks.Instead of buying furniture at Ikea for my new apartment,我买了三个大型木制奶酪盘.我不去拿我真正需要的梳妆台，我的手被炸了sangria pitcher.（有些人可能会说，这是一种厌恶装饰我稀疏的住所。我说,当我可以用一杯酒来代替放松的时候，为什么还要担心让我空荡荡的公寓变得宜居呢？另外，I have a mattress.) There's also been another fruitful development: I started dabbling in wine subscriptions.
如果你有兴趣和我一起学习，让葡萄酒一月成为一件事，I've found that wine subscription services are incredibly helpful for sampling different varieties and makers.Plus it ensures that you're always stocked without having to go farther than your mailbox.很多之后，啊哼，测试，我发现这五个是我最喜欢的。De nada.
