The secrets to a happy holiday with friends

Last summer I enjoyed a short break with good friends, a break devoted mainly to winery visits, bottle opening and what most people call “drinking” but which we termed “tasting”. (As in, “I tasted a bottle-and-a-half last night.”) It was a most jolly time, foul weather putting long walks and other diversionary tactics out of the question. Food, wine and conviviality remained. I mention this so that you might share my happiness, and also to point out that joint holidays, even mini ones, don’t always go so well.
