Wine Wednesday - A Guide

I am ready to start drinking wine so that I can share my favorites with you!  This week, I wanted to share the parts of Wine Wednesday that you can expect to see each week.

  • Name and Year - I have no idea whether it matters what year it is, but I'm committed to getting to the bottom of that for you!  I promise a comparison of two different years of the same wine soon - we'll learn together
  • Type of Wine - I'm going to jump out of my comfort zone and try some new types of wine!!
  • Where to Buy - I'm not sure how often I'll be able to supply this to you - but I'll do my best!
  • Price
  • Smell - I'm sometimes really turned off by the smell of wine, but love the taste of it; or sometimes I love how the wine smells but then I taste it and then I'm disappointed
  • What You'll Taste - If you sat next to me and drank the wine, there's a good possibility that you would taste something different than I do - but I'm hoping you'll leave me a comment and let me know when that happens!
  • Intensity - I'm not exactly sure what this means yet - it's probably different for every wine, but you know how sometimes you take a drink of wine and you feel like your eyes bug out and the only thing you can say is "WHOA" - I guess that's what fits here.
  • Sweetness - I'm definitely a fan of sweeter wine in the summer, but lately my taste has been moving away from sweet and more to the smooth wines.  I'll use a 0-5 rating scale for this... I don't like scales that give the option for a true middle.
  • Pairing - There are some wines that I just cannot drink without food.  There are some wines that I could drink a whole bottle of - for dinner.  If I drink wine with something and love it, I'll definitely let you know!

Alright - bring on the wine... I really hope you'll join me along the way!!



  1. I really wished we lived closer. Like next door. Then we could do wine Wednesdays together.

    1. We could totally make that happen - I'm sure there are plenty of places that Jason could find people who want their houses improved :)
