Since it is 2 in the morning (and no I'm not drunk or anything; just taking advantage of staying up late on a weekend) I'll probably keep this post short and sweet. I wouldn't want to strain anything as I make this ever-tough re-entry to the blog world. I should really just ease back into it. Of course I'm joking, but this post will be short, even though "short" probably means that I should be finished by now rather than rambling on like a lethargic maniac.
Well, the topic that I'm choosing to talk about today is WINE! Who doesn't like wine? I feel rich when I drink it. A false sense of financial security never hurt anyone, right?
Tomorrow morning my dad and I are going to a local winery to help them bottle their Riesling. They have a restaurant that some of my dad's racquetball buddies frequent so they encouraged us to go. I have to admit that Cincinnati is a conservative town where opportunities such as bottling wine are few and far between. That being said, we jumped at the chance to help out, and we even get a free lunch afterwards! Or at least I think it's free.
I'm not sure if we will be sampling the wine but I won't complain one bit if we do! I like Riesling a lot because it is sweet and very refreshing. That is the extent of my wine knowledge right there. I know which wines are red and which are white, but I couldn't tell you which ones have a floral note or flavors of crisp apple and pear, blah, blah, blah. In my opinion wine never tastes like the fancy words used to describe it.
If I learn more about the almighty grape, how wine is made, or how to describe it, I'll be sure to let you know!
Have a great weekend!!
