It’s National Wine Day! I was going home, listening to the radio…This holiday was mentioned. How appropriate to fall on a Wednesday,Hump Day! This day, you can feel downright smug and enjoy a glass or two red wine- hey, it’s healthy for you!
Did you that wine drinkers tend to live longer than either bee drinkers or those hard liquor only fans. Forget that 20-year old scotch-try a Cabernet!
Wine bars are cropping up all over-it’s relaxing chatting over a Zinfandel. And it’s easier in most but the neighborhood bar on the corner, to get a decent glass of wine.
I’m no connoisseur. I tend to semi-sweet, a white Zinfandel or gerverztraminer or something like that. I went wine-tasting in upstate NY-fun! She was the designated driver-so I as the taster. I had instructions to taste dry white wines. Whatever I hated, she wanted a case! If it was dry as dust to me, she knew she’d love it!
Kevin Atticks has written a series for Maryland,Pennsylvania and New Jersey and the vineyards that produce some great wines. He’s a Professor now in Communications and wrote these while a student at Loyola College hen I was in the Career Center there. I also recommend the Watkins Glen are in upstate, NY and the Lake Cayuga area there as well.
You’ll have to excuse me. I must raise a glass to National Wine Day. Cheers!
