Sweet, white, red, dry, sparkling, pink, blush, sake, fruity, sangria, slammer, patio pounder?
I get asked all the time - What do you drink? Well honestly - it all depends. Where I am eating, the mood I'm in, the weather, the wine list, my house, friends house, car, day drinking or night drinking, can i have only one glass or two(or maybe 3?) what I am eating, and again - the mood....
All of these things matter. I have opened up a bottle at home, had a drink, then opened up another one because I wasnt "feeling it." If I go to a place and they have wine that I am not in the mood for or just plain shitty wine, I wont drink. Im cool with that. I would rather drink nothing then something i dont like. Food the same way.
So also - I get asked - Whats your favorite wine? well, i could say Zinfandel on a freezing cold day in front of the fireplace with Christmas tree lights blinking in the background, the star looking down at me like the coming of Jesus. I could say the zingy and fruity sauvignon blanc from New zealand on the hottest summer day, sitting outside on the patio with the sun blazing down and beads of sweat dripping down my brow.....or I could say champagne on just an ordinary day, i dont need a celebration to sit back and relax with the tiny bubbles popping in my mouth like pop rocks. or maybe its the Sunday morning sipper with my gram.....usually its blush or the famous carlo rossi sangria out of a 5 liter, or sometimes the dreaded manischewitz that is so sweet it actually makes my teeth hurt and after i have to brush them because of the caterpillars that have seemed to land in my mouth.
Whatever the day is, the friends I am with, the way I hope to feel, want to feel, all of those things make that glass of wine my favorite. so many memories are made with wine and the way it makes you feel.
so Please - Tell me your favorite wine? how does it make you feel?

Favorite moment of my day - Hearing some excitement in my dad when I gave him tickets to the Nascar race for Fathers day
