Wine for Dummies

I love wine. We love wine. Why? I could think of a hundred and one reasons but call it shallowness but I love it because it makes me feel cultured and polish! Hahaha I know I could get very vain ;) Humor me and just indulge me, ok.
 Wine has a meaningfulness no other beverage possesses – beyond water. Its history, culture and charm rolled into one. Say thank you – a bottle of wine - an ultimate gesture of fine taste, class and hospitality. There is always an occasion fit for a wine. Having a Friday night pizza? Bring out the bottle of Shiraz. An anniversary of a milestone, one glass of bubbly please... Perhaps you have a horrible day and the only thing that would save the day is a cozy evening with your amore over a glass of wine to wash all the cares away.

Wine brings out the flavor or food. And it is good for you. Research shows that 1 glass of wine (for women) and 2 glasses (for men) per day can have health benefits. The antioxidants in red wine reduce the instances of heart attacks and strokes. I am not saying I have a glass every day, but whenever I have one, I savor it and let its rich flavors roll my tongue. And yes I still dream of one day, yes someday, maybe soon, maybe later in the future I would be able to share a glass of wine with mi amore and a tour in the winery with my wine tasting friends, share a walk through the sprawling vineyards, enjoy the art or sculpture gallery while enjoying the perfectly paired flavors of good food and excellent wine. It is truly a joy to be engaged and appreciating life; and wine is the enabler. But for now I will wake up in my dream and be content to have this at home.
