Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you had a beautiful weekend and are ready to tackle Monday! It’s here so WINE not?! No, I didn’t misspell that a word. It’s just that this post happens to be about my first wine-tasting with the hubby. You see over a year ago I promised this gal, a great blogging buddy that I would learn to drink wine so I could have a glass with her. I’m late to the party but I’m trying to keep my promise. And this gal is none other that the fabulous Deena from Shoes to Shiraz.
Imagine how much fun we could have if wine was involved? On second thought, don’t answer that or let your imagine run wild.
To start our adventure, I simply Googled for local wineries that have tasting rooms. We found a few and settled on one in a little small town not far from our home. This little town had seen better days in its downtown but it was quaint and I love quaint small towns.
Looks a little Ameircana doesn’t it? One thing I love about small towns is when they try to hang onto or recapture that little piece of Americana that has vanished and been replaced with glitz and glam.
The place was getting ready for a event that evening so it was quiet people-wise but the employees were hustling to prepare for the influx of people showing up in a few hours. We chatted a bit about wine and what we would probably like the best. Then the adventure began.
Up first was a sweet rose’. It was good to me and hubby thought so too.
I mean, I guess so because my glass is empty or maybe I have a super power like this guy.
Next was another sweet wine followed by a dry wine. Oh, my goodness! I could not even swallow the dry wine. For me, the dry wine was like swallowing cotton. Decision made – I’m sweet wine liker/drinker.
We also ordered what they call an Antipasta Plate. Well, now you are talking. You had me at meat, cheese, crackers, chocolate and WINE. I’m all in now!
After the dry wine, we tasted a frozen Sangria at the suggestion of our waitress. We had one red and one white. Red was better but then the server told us about a swirl. Frozen, slushy and swirly plus food was something I’m signing up for any day of the week!
Yep, this was the best wine of the trip. I love everything about frozen and slushy! We shared this one and good thing because this virgin wine drinker might have had some wobbly legs leaving the building otherwise.
And there you have it! I’m on my way to discovering my WINE favorites and language. Thought you would enjoy some WINE humor on your Monday.
Hope you have a great week!
Be blessed ~ Carrie
