I’ve been babbling about this Twitter Taste Live stuff all week, if not two. I want to explain why I’ve been talking about it, plus hopefully get your help so I can win some wine! I know that a lot of people who follow me don’t like wine, or don’t drink at all. I am of course sensitive to that, which is why my other blog, Babbling About Nothing, has a great post about Stay At Home Moms, or finances in a relationship in general. I try to offer something for everyone. I’m the Baskin-Robbins of blogging, 31 flavors to satisfy everyone.
Tonight, we went to Italy for dinner. While we didn’t actually FLY there, we did have a fantastic lazagne,some garlic bread, and of course, a nice Italian wine to compliment the meal. I did not take a lot of time picking tonight’s wine out, and went with something that was inexpensive ($10) and being demoed in the store.
I am so glad you stopped by to see my review of Thorn-Clark’s Terra Barossa 2006 Shiraz. It’s been an interesting video to shoot, complete with technical glitches, multiple tastings, and some fun discoveries. That is what I love about wine, not only are there differences from grape to grape, but within the same grape varietal there are differences, and further within the same bottle there are differences depending on the situation. This interesting red from Australia sure brings that point home.
Starting my quest for 100, and membership to The Wine Century Club, I review a Verdejo from Rueda Spain made by Palma Real.
I’ve come across many wines that didn’t suit my palate. Some were too sweet, others too dry, and still others just didn’t give me any reason to drink it. However, no wine has given me such an adverse reaction as this Zinfandel from Kelley Creek did.
Robin and I love to entertain. We don’t do it enough, maybe once every month or two. We’ll have a bigger party, maybe 20-30 people, once or twice a year, then we’ll have 2-4 other people over now-and-then. We always try to plan out a fun and exciting menu, complimented by fun beverages. You all know I’m a big fan of wine, and now you’ll see I love to cook!
