Now I Can Bitch and Wine



As many of you already know, this past Christmas I received a gift card from a local wine and spirit store here in Philly. So, Monday afternoon I decided to go wine shopping.

For someone who only 3 years ago started drinking any kind of alcoholic beverage, I’ve gradually turned into a wine freakazoid.

However, let me say it’s not the AMOUNT of wine I consume that does it for me, because I’m really a lightweight. A half a glass to a glass is about all I can handle. Anything more than a glass, I start seeing flying monkeys. But rather, it’s about the selecting, pairing, pouring, and the overall ritual of wine that I love.

For me, wine is a spiritual experience that must be performed and savored like a sacrament.

I enjoy taking my time while selecting a new wine. I like reading the labels to see what flavors are listed and where the wine came from. I tend to like California and Australian wines best. I drink Pinot Noir, Shiraz, or a Cabernet Sauvignon. I have also enjoyed Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon blends. Talk about yummy!

I don’t judge the price of a wine by how good it will be, because some of the best wines I’ve ever tasted have been under $10.00.

Anyhoo, while I was strolling through the store I came across this bottle….



*Notice the back label: bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch…

Now I’m wondering….would I only consume this wine when I felt like BITCHING about something?

Well, I guess that would mean intravenously EVERYDAY.....



Have a Bitch and Wine weekend everyone!
