Not a Wino Yet!

Friday, November 06, 2009

I am not a drinker. I couldn't be an alcoholic if I tried. But the wine tasting was fun. 8 different
wines, ranging from sweet to very dry! The gentleman serving was very gracious to only give me a sip or two of each. The sweet wines were wonderful. The semi-dry were okay but the dry wines were nasty.
At least we had a nice supper before we went and that helped cut the buzz. There were crackers and cheese and apple slices and I could nibble between sips. I had budgeted all day for this and I did fine. No headache, no hangover LOL!
Early morning ambulance run made me appreciate my restraint from the night before.
Have an awesome weekend. Get outside and enjoy the weather. It is sunny and warm here and I want to get outside tonight. Time will tell.
Thanks for stopping by, reading and commenting.

Best wine-Verdi Raspberry Sparkletini from Italy
Close second-Cinzano Asti from Italy
Dead last and I kid you not-Bitch Grenache from South Australia

    so glad you had a great time at the wine tasting . see you like cinzano asti also we had bought a case of small bottles for our wedding 20 years ago. i think each bottle held two drinks. we can not find the little bottles or the wine itself around here any more. can you tell me what winery you found it at,it would be nice to have a glass with supper now and then and remember the memories and start new ones. emoticon

    It sounds like it was a lot of fun! I have got to try the Cinzano Asti once and I liked it. That last one doesn't even sound like it would taste good! LOL
    Have a great weekend and enjoy being outside while it is warm and nice!

    What fun! I'm not a drinker either, but sometimes I wish I were. Would anesthetize me a bit from life's sadness and pain.

    I am an easy drunk too so I don't drink except for the occassional on New Years Eve. I have a great time talking to my kneecaps after a third drink because no one else can understand me. emoticon

    When my husband and I were dating, he called me a cheap date. I always stopped at one. I really don't like the taste of most alcohol and yuck on beer. emoticon

    I am with you, couldn't be a regular drinker! Too many calories for one! But wine tasting is fun to compare all the different kinds of wines. Just curious was it a local winery, or a wine dealer where you tasted. I might have to check out that Raspberry Sparkletini! It sounds really good!
    And I do believe the dry wines are an acquired taste. I am glad you had fun!
    It was beautiful out today, and I did get out for a while on my bike and boy did I enjoy it!
    So nice to have sun and not rain, and it is actually kind of warm!
    Have a nice weekend!
