Learning the Bar

After reading my blog, you may have noticed I'm a girl who enjoys a cocktail. While I've been known to overindulge every now and again, I'm not one to love a sloppy night or the aches that accompany the next morning. 

In 2008, I did a semester in Spain where I was officially introduced to life as a wine-o. While I've strayed away from the beverage lately, I've decided to educate myself on the subject of wine in efforts to grow my love. I found this print on pinterest a while back, and I'm absolutely fascinated.

How cool is this? I think I'm going to order a full size print for my apartment. Maybe hang it up near the bar? I think yes.

It's interesting to see what wines I already prefer in relation to one another. Apparently I'm a fruity red girl who loves anything with cherry notes. My go-tos are Pinot Noir (california's especially), Cabernet Sauvigon, Tempranillo, and Cotes du Rhone.

If you're not a wine person, sorry for this post, but if you are, what do you think? Do you have a favorite type of wine?

I'm thinking this poster would be great for a tasting dinner party. You could explore fortified wines for a night or even better... sparkling wine.

I love this.

Ummm I love that print. I'm a self proclaimed wino as well :) My fave red is Cabernet and fave white is Pinot Grigio!

I tend to drink reds, I used to love cabernet but now I often drink pinot noir.

If it's white, it's sauvignon blanc.

I love pinot noir and cabernet. Also enjoy prosecco and sauv blanc!

I love wine, but I'm admittedly not very educated about it. This is great!

Meg said...

I really like this post! I don't know too much about wine, nor am I very educated about the types, but I do know a few that I really enjoy. Now I know which other ones to try to be more adventurous :) Thank you!

You popped up on Twitter as someone I should follow (so I did) and then I found my way over here. So happy I did! I like to think of myself as a wine-o but I don't really know all that much about wine sooo I guess I really should try and learn something! ;) Thanks for sharing!

I heart wine, but I prefer whites these days. Especially ones that sparkle. Mmm.

My husband is the beverage manager at a local country club, which means I get the distinct honor of trying new wines for the club. We went to Napa last year on a business trip and are going back next month. We're also scheduled to go to Oregon wine country in the fall. I used to be a Pinot girl, but now I'm liking full bodied Cabs. I also LOVE champagne and sparkling wines. My favorites are Veuve Cliquot, La Marca Prosecco, and Chandon Blanc de Noir.

This is pretty awesome! I'm not a big wine drinker, but I do love my moscato. I'll have to check out other varieties that are similar.

What a cool print! Would look awesome in the kitchen!

Tracy @ Honey and Nutmeg said...

This is fantastic and I think you need a print of this above your wine rack. I love to try wine, but I am super bad with names, so I NEVER EVER remember what I have tried!
