I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point during the past couple of years my part of the world went wine crazy. Of course, I didn’t notice until I, in fact, had already gone wine crazy. I’ve never been much of a drinker…as a supertaster liquor has always been way too strong for me. I did discover that certain drinks were mixed so well that you could barely taste the liquor, and just as quickly I learned that those are most definitely the drinks to stay far away from. So on the occasions that I did treat myself to a drink I decided one day to see what wine tasted like. I had no idea what to buy so I went by price. White Zinfindel by Sutter Home was cheap enough so that was what I bought.
Well that was some very tasty wine! I loved it! I couldn’t believe that I had been ruining and wasting my tastebuds with regular liquor the three times per year I did drink! (New Years, 4th of July, and my birthday) Before you knew it I found myself buying Sutter Home at least once per month. It was so good that I didn’t want to wait for a holiday to treat myself to it. I wasn’t sure if once a month was too much or not, but as I look back the little 2 or maybe 4oz plastic bottles that I bought (and only drank one of them) was not much at all. Then I started to notice that everytime I went to visit someone, or went to a party there were bottles of White Zinfindel going around! Was this something new? Did I just not notice before? What was going on?
As time went on I went back to maybe 3-4 times per year of drinking wine. Eventually, I believe it was for a birthday party, I switched what I purchased one day to something called Barefoot Moscato. Once again I had never heard of it, but thought I could try it at least once. I had no clue what I was getting myself into! It tasted even better than the Zinfindel! I couldn’t believe what my taste buds were telling me. The only reason I bought it is because I started noticing everyone around me buying it when they went out and wondered what all the fuss was about. Well now I know…the light sweet taste of Barefoot Moscato will have almost anyone dying for more! It falls under the category of Muscat Blanc and has a light, crisp sweet taste that just about anybody could love. I love it so much that I just had to blog about it.
So, do you drink wine? Red or White? Do you like Moscato?
