Wine Fair

This is a photo of some rather expensive wines. In fact, and trust me as I’m full of useful facts, I found one wine, the Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 2003, that retails around $800.00 a bottle. It doesn’t even include a corkscrew at that price. I could tell it was expensive just by looking at the fancy label and also because I had trouble spelling the name.

I mention this because I do wine tasting at some large events and some not so large events. At a recent wine fair where patrons paid the not so high sum of $20.00 to have a chance to sample some 100 wines. Hor dourves consisted of shrimp, cheeses, hot food and various fruit and chocolates.  I think it’s a great deal. You get to try some new wines and to chat with the agents who can tell you something about the winery and the wine.

Now some customers are grand. They have an idea what wines they want to try and usually go home with a new found prize, likely one of my wonderful wines. However there are also the “why should I have to pay more than $10.00 for a Rothschild equivalent?’ wine connoisseur. They make a great pretense of swishing the wine around their mouth while looking to sky for inspiration before finally spitting the wine into the spittoon. They then critique a wine that sell for $19.50 as if they hand picking a wine for the royal wedding. Oh well, no worries. After the third glass most wine will taste pretty good.


I survived another birthday. My lovely wife took me to a new bar, the Twisted Kilt, and reserved a party room. It was great. Friends and family all were there. Beer and food was served by some rather underdressed waitresses 🙂 and even a young fellow played the bagpipe. I was spoiled with too many gifts, including about ten Starbucks cards. Apparently lots of people think I look too sleepy. So to all those who made it to the party, and to those who were able to wish me happy birthday via email, thank you very much. Next time we get together I’ll even fork out a few dollars for a decent glass of wine for you.
