Do you prefer red or white wine? I know when its hot outside many people drink lighter wines.
I simply prefer reds, the darker, thicker and richer they are the better! The truth is, I have not always been a wine drinker. In fact, I never drank wine other than sparkling’s, until about 16 years ago.
I was invited to a big birthday party for a friend, I won’t tell you what number we were celebrating because I reserve the right to keep mine and my friends ages a secret!
The menu for the birthday dinner was set. The choices were beef or salmon. I never order salmon, since I am lucky enough to have a freezer full at all times due to my husband’s annual Alaskan fishing trip. And the drink choices were red or white wine; naturally I selected the beef filet and my first ever, glass of red wine.
The label was Dynamite Cabernet and there was definitely a flavor explosion happening in my mouth. I never looked back and have been an avid red wine lover ever since.
I discovered rosé wine in a similar way. About 4 years ago when I was researching for my first ATOP group trip to Provence. I was sitting at a seaside cafe eating mussels and frites with my sweet friend Donna who happens to live in Australia. She suggested that we order wine with lunch…OK why not! After that first glass of French rosé I totally understood the phrase Rosé all Day!
I have not had that same light-bulb experience with white wines but I am hopeful!
Tell me, are you a red or white wine drinker and if white is your jam, what label? Maybe I will give it a try and be converted before summers end.
