Wine Tasting in A List
- 1.Start with a nice white.Smooth with notes of bergamot and peach. I smile politely.
- 2.Move to a soft red, perhaps a Pinot noir.Wonderful! Love this. It's full bodied for something like a burger yet light enough for chicken. One bottle, please. (Thinking, yay! Now my tasting fee is waived!)
- 3.On to a fuller red like maybe a merlotReading the menu, "hints of tobacco and deep cherry?!?" WTF, who wants that in their wine? I don't like this— Hey! no, I don't want you to take it away. I just don't like it. Downs in one gulp. What's next, Grabby McGrabalot?"
- 4.Next up are a bunch of the World's Best Ever wines.Reds. Whites. Blues. It's all a blur but somehow I'm dropped off at home with 2 cases of random wines to try for the first time all over again.
- 5.Cost of waiving the tasting fee: $697.43.Plus 3 wine membership. The gift that keeps on giving.
