I have heard all that crap about drinking white wine with steak and/or cheese,
read wine with fish and either can go with ham, blah, blah, blah blah.....etc.
I have been given a glass of wine in the past from friends stating, "It is $30...
$100 a bottle. It all pretty much tasted like, I'm trying to think of a way to be
kind, 100 year old sewer swamp to me. I just said thank you and gulped it when
they weren't looking if I could. It is usually best to be standing near a sink drain
or open window when that happens. Well anyway, this lead me to become
inquisitive in the quest for a good wine that was not going to cost me more than
a case of good beer.
A special note at this time must be verbalized. At the time of this quest my
wife had just quit her job a bartender to follow her dream of having her own
cleaning business, which she has been doing quite well with for the past 4+ years.
All that means is, she was giving up beer and needed to find another beverage
of choice. Since we both enjoyed wine (me way more than her), we went on
a quest to find good affordable wines. The following is what we came up with.
She likes to alternate red and white wine, one glass limit each night. That
means she will have one glass of red tonight and one glass of white tomorrow
night. The choices she has decided on are red; Barefoot brand Sweet Red Blend
and Barefoot brand Riesling . We have tried many brands of Riesling but no
other brand, I don't care cost, even comes close. $5.99 each. It is without a
doubt the best sweet wine I have ever tasted, warm or chilled.
Oh me? I drink Franzia's Crisp White because it is good (not as good as
Barefoot Riesling) and costs $15.99 for 5 litres. AND I'II drink it with
whatever the #ell I want to
That's it, I'm done for now....time for a glass of wine.
