Warning: This blog post might bore the heck out of you. But it’s one I want to post for me. It’s a passion of mine and I am currently living in a place that just lives, breathes, and “sips” my passion. WINE!
I love wine. I am a wanna-be wino. Not because I want to know what to pair with wine and what wine is the best, etc. No, I love he science behind it. I guess you could say I am wino science geek.
Back in college I took a wine making course. I fell in love with the process. How it ages, how you pick the right grape, the right climate/region, etc. It’s an art form. I love wine because it describes culture. It’s full of life and it’s always enjoyed in good company.
I’m a wanna-be wino because I get giddy when trying new wines and exploring new wineries/vineyards. I study the region, look at how they make the wine, and read their story about how the vineyard was started. And trust me, there’s always a story.
I’m a wanna-be wino because I drink a glass of wine a night. Red or white? Depends on my mood, not what I’m cooking. But yes, there will be wine while cooking.
I’m a wanna-be wino because I look at Food and Wine Magazines to read the articles. I want to learn more. I want to know how they are rated. It’s gotta be a SCIENCE, right?
I’m a wanna-be wino because I married a man from New Zealand just so I could drink good wine, just kidding. Although that is a perk!
Some people collect nut butters, protein powder, etc. but I collect wine bottles. I like pretty ones with cool labels or names.
Yes, my name is Lindsay Windsay and I’m a Wanna-be Wino.
Sorry Lou, I just had to include you!
