I’ve been focused on wine a bit this week. As you may have heard, my 30th birthday was on Monday, and that gives cause for celebration. This means a trip to Total Wine, the BEST wine warehouse in the United States, and a glass of my favorite red (it is supposed to by autumn now). If you don’t have a Total Wine in your area, well… you poor thing. Bless your heart. It’s the largest wine store I have ever seen, and at discount prices because they can buy in bulk. It’s like Christmas walking in there… for adults. You will need a shopping cart, just saying.
The success of stores such as Total Wine, as well the popularity of visiting vineyards, made me reflect on the “wino” culture that has popped up. It might have always been there, and I just notice it now because I am older and can no long tolerate Pabst Blue Ribbons out of the can, no matter how cheap it is… sorry boys. There definitely seems to be some very dedicated wine fans out there though. And with that dedication to enjoying the finer points of life comes humor. A winning combination, eh? Here are a few of my favorite funny wine quote finds:
I get a laugh-out-loud giggle just about every time I come across these funnies. And because my parents know me so well, this was my birthday card…. again, keeping up with the times and the wine humor. I kind of love it.
