What I’m Drinking

Wine tasting for the gala
We were looking for a $12-$18 everyday white to serve at a charity event, so we had a neighborhood tasting. Because that’s how we roll.

This is a list to help me remember what I liked so when I walk into my neighborhood liquor store (which isn’t actually in in neighborhood, but is close enough), I can show Ritchie, Brad, Sisco, or Andrew my running list, and they can recommend new wines that I might enjoy. Because real, live people are better than algorithms.

We drink mainly in the $15-25/bottle category, so if you’re looking for super-fancy wine recommendations, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Also, if you’re looking for actual reviews and entertaining wine commentary, skip this list and instead pay a visit to Conrad over at The Wine Wankers (g’day!).

And yes, I would have a “Better with Chocolate” page, too; but I haven’t ever met dark chocolate that I didn’t like, so there’s no point keeping a list.
