wine post número uno




Spaniards can talk about wine morning, noon, and night...maybe because they drink it morning, noon, and night...They can go on about the variety of grapes, types of soil, harvests, climate...I, on the other hand, am going to base my reviews on the following foolproof criteria;
1. How it tastes.
2. How slowly it makes me feel loopy.
3. How pretty the bottle is.
And with that in mind, I present to you the first wine on my list, Blue Nun. One of my favorite wines to date. Ok, there is just one flaw in my first post on Spanish wines...Blue Nun is actually German...But I figure, I´m in SPAIN, in a SPANISH bar, ordering in SPANISH, and being served by a SPANISH bartender... ¡Salud!

"hi i'm georgie porgie and i'm an alcoholic!" AA meetings anyone? :D

Hmmm... a glass a wine sounds perfect! I haven't had a blue nun in ages.

I popped over from mimi charmante's blog.

Enjoy!
