Wine and Calories

 

  For all of you wine lovers out there don’t think I have forgotten about you. I have been a little leary because I don’t drink wine. So there for I didn’t think I could give you an honest opinion.

 

So I went on a wine quest not knowing what to expect, and that’s what I did

The only thing I knew about wines was that when I was a kid  we drank some sort of something called “MD 20 20” and if I remember right we used to call it “Mad dog 20 20”. Very long time ago.
Three kids drinking with a bottle of Mad dog 20 20. Not a very smart thing to do at the age of 14. We knew what we doing and we did it anyway and we paid for it later on!

  Anyway do they still make this stuff?

Now sense my girlfriend loves wine it was only fitting to take her along with me on my quest. ( plus she said she was going whether I liked it or not )
OOK………..then.

On my quest I found out that there is more to this wine thing than meets the eye. I also found out that the more you drank the more confusing it became. Untill you have gotten to the point that you just didn’t care. Just keep pouring.

OK so here goes….
