Musings on wine

I am a bit of a wine junkie. I can say with all honesty that I do not know that much about wine, but I am working on educating myself. I feel like I should be knowledgable about something that I so love. And so, I've gotten in touch with my inner nerd (who really isn't hidden very deep), bought some books, googled some questions and am slowly but surely working on turning myself into a wine connoisseur....and finally being able to earn that personal wine cellar I would love to have someday.

There are very few things that I enjoy more than a glass of cabernet sauvignon on a cool Fall evening or toasting summer with a chilled chardonnay. There is a wine for every mood and a wine to compliment every meal. Wine brings a touch of class to any situation, and can fool a person into acting with greater poise and smiling a little brighter. Wine can always play the common demoninator between my best friend and I, and is the perfect excuse for a girl's night in, gossiping in pjs. And, red, red wine embodies that perfect shade of deep, nearly purple, red that no paint seems to do justice to. Ahhh, wine...

What's your favorite?


  1. I am recently starting to get into wine even though I didn't like it for the longest time. We went on a wine tour this past weekend and I found some that I love!

  2. I love wine tours! I'm always amazed at some of the off-the-beaten-path wineries I've come across. You'll have to keep me posted on your taste in wine. Mine seems to be ever evolving.

  3. Oh man, I know nothing about wine. Just that I like drinking it.

    Last weekend I had a pretty wine label party. You can see it on my blog. It's basically the best idea for a themed party I've ever had!

  4. I'm going to have to check it out! My friends and I always talk about hosting a wine tasting party, but just haven't gotten around to it yet...I need to do that!


Thanks for stopping by!
