When we won the wine raffle after purchasing a single ticket at my son’s school (pretty neat raffle offering for a school, huh?!?), our closest friends also in attendance cheered. They were just as happy knowing we’d be sharing this windfall. Twenty-four bottles of wine in the cupboard, twenty-for bottles of wine… sing along, everyone!
That was the best $25 The Husband and I spent in a long while.
There is a potpourri of other wine varieties and producers in the batch. Represented are the sweet to the dry, the well known to the new to me, at least. I discovered a great website to help me begin to identify everything. WineSearcher.com allows you to type in your wine’s information, then returns more statistics than you will know what to do with- our two dozen range from $12 to $60.
The first I popped open was from one of our local wineries, the Fallbrook cabernet. I love me some cabernet sauvignon. This is a delicious cab, the tannins are already mellowing.
We hit the jackpot! I like wine, can you tell? I already had a good 15-20 bottles, so, we will now need to contemplate which is the lesser of two evils: wastefulness versus drunkenness- some of these whites need to be drunk up right away, after all.
