You might be a wine geek...

by Alan Uchrinscko » Sat Sep 30, 2006 9:57 pm

If you are visiting firends and see a Framer's Almanc magnet on their refrigerator and think it's a Chateau Petrus label (I did this earlier this evening)...it was the 2000 to top it off...the colors are a bit off when distorted on the web but at a quick glance it's there...

You might be a wine geek...

when you know the wine just from seeing the color of the capsule.


when you swirl your orange juice at breakfast


and then you sniff it....

You're a wine geek when...

You might be a wine geek if this is your home page.
You might be a wine geek if you slap your 22-year old son upside the head for holding his wine glass by the bowl.
I believe we had this thread about 2 years ago on the old WLP and it may be worth resurrecting.

Stay up all night to read Thomas P’s book “Wine- the 8,000 Year Old Story of the Wine Trade” from cover to cover. (Nicely done Thomas).

Salute
