I Love Wine!

I Love Wine, Anyone who knows me...Knows I love wine..
I'm not shy about it... I don't claim to be any sort of expert in the matter,
My saying is:

I'm not a Wine Connoisseur,
I'm a Wino!!
I don't act pretentious, with the swilling & swirling & spitting...
and speaking of it's eloquent bouquet of wildflowers & French Oak...
That is all good & fine, "Whatever floats your boat"...

I crack that bottle open ... Pour some in my glass, let it breath a second
and down the first sip goes, I like it or I don't like it..... I always use a rule
my Momma gave me long long ago, she said .. "Give it three sips"

Sometimes that 1st sip of wine can be quite an eye opener...

I love hardy Red's you can cut with a knife & fork....
I love whites on a hot summer day, that smell like a great basket of fruit..

In all of my travels, I've enjoyed some of the greatest wines
from the wonderful Malbec's of the Mendoza region of Argentina...
to the great mountains of Casablanca Valley of Chile..
to the small and wonderful wineries of San Luis Obisbo...
To the Home Sweet Home Wineries of The Great State of Texas!
(Yes, Texas makes Wine, & They're Grrrrrrrrrrreat)

I started drinking Wine very, very young as a matter of fact,
I was in the womb....Thanks MOM! This is your fault!
My Mother was ordered to drink Red Wine while pregnant with me!
For medical reasons of course..... It was very official...

I have had wine from expensive bottles, plastic bottles, a can & a box!!!
but today's find at Sam's Club was a unique treat! A Mini-Barrel from Red Truck!
Martha Stewart says "With left over wine, I freeze it & use it later in recipes"
I say "What left over Wine???""
