While out to lunch, one of my co-workers asked me a question that caught me by surprise. It was a simple question…”What are your 4 favorite wines? (I’m taking editorial license and expanding it to 5 for purposes of this post because…well it just feels right;-) As my mind started to race through the possibilities, I decided to clarify the question (and stall for a second or two). I replied, “Do you mean by variety or style”? He replied “Either”. Next thing you know, like the kid Ralphie in “A Christmas Story” when asked by Santa what he wanted for Christmas, I blurted out my answer!
You’d think, being the wine drinking fool I am, I’d have given this some thought prior to being asked the question, but I hadn’t. I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised by my lack of decisiveness in this matter. My response would be the same if you’d ask me for my 5 favorite ice creams, cheesecake, or dream cars. It would likely depend on when you asked me and the answer would be subject to change…
So what are my 5 favorite style/kinds of wines? They are:
- Pinot Noir
- Rhone Blends
- Bordeaux Blends
- Sparkling Wines
Your turn! What are your 5 favorite types, or styles of wine (and “No” you can’t respond with the name of an entire country;-) Leave me a comment and let me know!
