Vino

I am getting ready to eat dinner and I want a glass of wine...but alas I have none. I really enjoy a cold frosty glass of White Zin with a good dinner. I prefer Behringer, but will drink most any brand.

I have tried to drink reds, as I know they compliment meats, fish and poultry. But reds are an acquired taste that I can't quite seem to acquire. To me they are bitter and very heady tasting, whereas a blush wine is usually light and fruity.

When I was much younger I worked as a cocktail waitress at a high level steak house and I had to try all of the various wines, so I could describe them and sell bottles to the tables!!! Yuck, I was 21 and had no taste for wine at the time and I had a miserable headache from trying all of them.

Did they make you drink all that wine on the job? Did you get loaded? I worked at McDonald's once, but they didn't make me eat the hamburgers. I did it voluntarily, because it was free, and I'm cheap.

And thanks for linking my blog! I'll return the favor!

I'm with you...white over red on most any occasion. I could not care less about the 'rules' of what wine goes with what. I drink what I like!

Thanks for visiting my blog. And double-thanks for listing me on your blogroll! I look forward to sharing posts and comments in the future!

How does one acquire a taste for Wine? I've tried so hard to get along with wine, but sadly, the best I can do it get it on with their bastard cousin the Wine Cooler...Bartels and James.

dorky dad - yes I had to drink all the wine, but they paid me to come in and I didn't have to work that night. I was pretty fun.

Your welcome, I enjoyed reading the blog.

Tannins in reds give me a huge headache. Which sucks cause I love reds =(

As Oscar Wilde put it, "Work is the curse of the drinking class."

Thanks for visiting the enchanted forest, Bardouble29, where we drink in peace and quiet, solitude, and the occasional glass of a good pinot noir.
