I JUST TRIED SOMETHING

I normally do not drink. I am usually the sober one amongst all the rowdies at various ranch functions. I can't handle beer. I don't drink a lot of mixed drinks either. In fact its been YEARS since I drank. I have always been envious of friends who can drink wine and who understand the different styles and flavors.

Its winter now. I usually get a bottle of Carolyn's Irish Cream to spike my coffee every now and then. Well now I stay home with my kids. I have been listening to friends talk about various wines. I stopped by United Market Place. That is one of our local grocery stores. They have huge selection of wines. I finally asked another customer about the various ones. I wanted a red or burgandy. I found one that is light, little bit dry but sweet. But not heavy sweet like desert wine. Actually I have been told that most of their wines are like that. I really liked this red wine. It is called Wichita Red. I am definitely looking forward to visiting the vineyard. Its on my way into Wichita Falls.

The last time that I really enjoyed any wine was when I was stationed in Germany. Germany has some of the best tasting wines. I haven't found one that I liked until yesterday. This isn't by any means an ad for this company. I have just have to say that you have to try this wine. Its really good. It would make a great gift. It would also be a good wine to enjoy after long hard day. It goes down that easy.

If you get the chance, try Wichita Falls Vineyards and Winery. They even have a chocolate wine that I would love to try.

Duplin Winery in North Carolina has some really nice wines. Our favorites are the seasonals.
