Before I met him, some friends of mine had tried to help me find a wine I liked, period. I'm not a huge drinker, never really have been. I don't like beer, give me an Amaretto Sour and I'm happy! :). On my 21st birthday they'd buy me drinks, I wouldn't like them and I'd pass them off. I wound up getting all my friends drunk that way... hmmmm.... Yes I was the soberest person on my 21st. haha!
So my friends decided to get me into drinking wine. It took them forever, but they were able to find 1, yes 1 wine that I liked. It's called Moscato d' Asti.
Moscato d'Asti is a "Denominazione di origine controllata" sparkling white wine produced mainly in the districts of Asti, Italy, and in smaller nearby regions in the districts of Alessandria and Cuneo. The wine is sweet and low in alcohol, and often enjoyed with dessert. Thus it is considered a dessert wine. It is from the Moscato Bianco grape.
A related wine, Asti Spumante, is produced in the same area from the same grape.
So when I met back up with PC he informed me he didn't drink wine. I told him I didn't either BUT there was this one type that I really liked and I bet he would too. Sure enough I got him to liking it! Yey :) So now we are on the hunt to find a red wine that we like, hence the reason I put it on the list. As of last night, I'm sold! PC found one at Macadoodles.
Now we've both heard that the more red wine you drink the more dry you'll eventually go so this may change, but for now, we are sold :) and I get to cross one thing off my list. Yey!!!
And please don't hold it against me that we were drinking red wine in a white wine glass. Remember up until last night, we didn't like red wine :)
**And yes I have naturally curly hair... no it isn't pretty curls, yes my hair was wet, and it isn't my whole head, just from my ears forward. from my ears back, it's wavy. Go figure**
Peace, Love & Red Wine (or as PC says, drunken Blondes)
