I have a confession to make:
I am a 27 year old single female that does Not drink wine.
I don’t know when or why it happened, but somehow the popular media decided all women in my circumstance should be obsessed with Audrey Hepburn, Paris, and Wine. Personally, I would choose Vera Farmiga, Beijing, and Craft Beer, but I finally decided it might be time to give the vino another chance.
You see I finally realized that most of my previous experiences with wine involved some friend’s weepy break-up scenario and Franzia from a box. Perhaps with a little coaching and a classier setting, I hoped I might find something new, and so off I went on an alcoholic adventure!
Accompanied by a dear friend and knowledgeable wine enthusiast, I ventured out to Total Wine, which I did not realize was such an enormous and glorious emporium of alcohol.
I absolutely love the art on the bottles!
Considering I’ve no current favorites, I based most of my decisions on the friendly staff recommendations and how cool the bottle looked (mostly the latter actually).
I finally decided on a merlot, a shiraz, and the “blue lady” bottle which contains something I can’t quite remember but am saving for a special occasion.
Anyway, the result was quite a success! I found everything quite delicious.
It turns out you can drive by a new city, try a bite of a new dish, watch a pirated movie, or half-ass any experience really.
But if you haven’t experienced it the Right way, do you really know anything about it at all?
