The 10 mistakes people make when drinking wine.

Today is “National Prosecco Day”.

I couldn’t tell you the difference between a prosecco and a riesling or a merlot and a cabernet.

I LOATHE wine. Gimme beer & Jameson and I’m happy.

The only thing I know about wine is that I LOVE Dr. Steve Brule…

And I could listen to “Strawberry Wine” by Chris Stapleton on repeat all. friggin. day.

Apparently, there’s some rules & regulations when drinking wine. Etiquette, if you will. According to Virgin Wines, these are the top 10:

  1. Holding a glass by the bulb & not the stem
  2. Damaging the cork when you try to remove it so you push bits of cork into the bottle
  3. Mispronouncing the name of the wine you’re ordering. What, no “Peanut Noir”?
  4. Serving white wine with red meat.
  5. Filling a wine glass to the tippy-top.
  6. Putting ice cubes in wine
  7. Adding lemonade or Coke to wine to water it down. This is a thing?
  8. Drinking straight out of the bottle
  9. Trying to use a corkscrew with a twist-off cap
  10. Pretending you know sophisticated terms to describe how a wine tastes.

A few years ago, the wife & I went to Fawn Creek in the Dells to see Pat McCurdy and thankfully, they had a bunch of beers available. We tried to do a wine tasting and I had absolutely no clue what was going on. Thankfully, they had a bucket on the table to spit it out.

I’m sure they make great wines, but I have no interest in drinking any of them. There was another guy there with his wife/gf and we both just laughed at how badly we stuck out of the crowd.
