The evening was humid and the wine and cachaça were flowing, as the entire restaurant got up to dance. Everybody including kids, grandparents, and the wait staff participated. Ah, the siren song of Brazil. Kissing is a big thing in Brazil and the locals freely offer três beijos (”three kisses”) when they greet you or say goodbye - even if they just met you. An older woman must have liked my dancing because she gave me four. So sweet. The “Beijo” is a homage to this experience, the samba, and the bossa nova that I love. It’s a blend of estate grown grapes with a beautiful nose and lots of personality.  Saude!

Everyone has a siren song.  What’s yours?
