My New Favorite Thing

I would not consider myself to be a wine connoisseur. I know what I like, and know what I don’t like. I know my parents like a nice bottle of shiraz, and therefore, I was raised to like it too.  I know white wine, even when appropriately chilled, makes me cringe and I will only drink it if no other alcoholic beverage is available. I know Franzia makes me want to vomit, as I was never able to “slap the bag.” I know I will never spend more than $20 on a bottle of wine. Why bother when you have so many cheap and delicious options?

“Spec’s” is a Texas chain devoted to wine, beer, cheese and gourmet snacks. It is like the mecca of appetizers and indulgences and is a weekly trip for Zack and I. Picture an entire grocery store devoted to alcohol and it’s complements. Samples include olive oil, bread, prosciutto. Heavenly. Last time I was there, this was recommended to me:

$16.98 for the equivalent of FOUR, yes, FOUR bottles of an earthy shiraz that will stay fresh on your counter for thirty days. And it tastes good. Really, really good. Go buy a box.


One thought on “My New Favorite Thing

  1. I used to hate wine. Really, really hate it.
    Then I went to a winery in Chaddsford and I fell in love. I will drink any wine, red or white or even blush, whenever I can. I like to buy the bottles based on their labels.

    Try this white for me:
    Polka Dot Reisling

    Try this blush:
    Pink Truck California Wine
