I’m not much of a wine connoisseur, though I like to pretend I am. I guess I’m just one of those people who really enjoys an occasional glass of wine with a meal. Or snack. Or on its own.
Every time I wander into a liquor store planning to buy beer or some equally blue-collar potable, I end up walking away with two bottles of wine: one red, one white.
I did this yesterday. I bought some Alexander Keith’s… And a bottle of House Wine (a blend of many reds, totally out-of-this-world good), as well as a South African Viogner called Fairview which I haven’t tried yet (you’ll all learn soon enough I’m really into Viogners when it comes to white wine).
Oh, I also bought a bottle of Merlot the other day. I don’t really like Merlot, but it was the only red available at the store from the, get this, Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery. I think myself and the fellas over at www.oilernation.com will likely buy a few more bottles of the stuff and judge it.
Even though those blue-collar shills only really like beer.
