Wine, Words & Wednesday, No. 110

The right wine for you- 6 bottles for just $34.99!

With both of my kids home from school on holiday break for the past couple/few weeks, my days have been running together.  I very nearly forgot today is Wednesday!

Today’s (quick but awesome) words come to us from winemaker, Peter Finlayson, of Bouchard Finlayson Vineyard in South Africa.

A wine-truth, if there ever was one:

Pinot Noir is probably my favorite grape (though Tempranillo is pretty dandy).  I’ve tasted a ton of Pinot, and I can almost always divide it into two categories:  Pinot that curls my toes, and Pinot I’m tempted to water my plants with (rare is the boring, but drinkable Pinot).

There is no middle road . . .
