Well, this blog is call Wine After Whine, so I guess it's fitting for me to share my Wine List and my Whine List with you. My 'Wine List' being the wines I absolutely love and my 'Whine List' being the top things that really get my goat!
* Piper Heidsieck
Well this is pretty much my all time favourite champagne. I love it so much I named my first born after it!! Just kidding, she's named after the character from Charmed but that would have made a cool story. Even Marilyn Munroe loved Piper, once declaring 'I go to bed every night with Chanel No.5 behind my ears, and wake up every morning with a glass of Piper Heidsieck'. That sounds like perfection to me, but it's usually out of my budget, so she is reserved for very special occasions only.
* Bird In Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir
Funny story behind how I first came to try the Bird In Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir. I had Qantas Frequent Flyer points that were due to expire and because they were accumulated by shopping at Woolies, not actual travel, I didn't have many but still - I did not want them to go to waste. So it was straight to the wine section, I had enough points for one whole bottle. I pretty much favour anything sparkling over still when it comes to wine, life's better with bubbles I think, so I added the Bird In Hand to my cart, waited for it to arrive and after the first sip - it became one of my faves.
For us wine lovers who like to sample wines from all over our fabulous country but might not be skipping off to another state anytime soon, a wine club subscription might be the way to go. Surprise bottles of wine carefully selected by people who know their stuff turning up on your doorstep each month - ooh it's a wino's dream! But which one do you choose? There are so many out there.....
