Cheers to ‘yummy’ wine

“Years ago, before I started writing about booze, I attended my first wine tasting. As our guide droned on about ripeness units and rainfall levels, I happily knocked back all the wine in front of me. I needed a couple of stiff ones just to be there. But then I looked around and realised that everyone else had only sipped their first wine and they were busy writing detailed notes about it. To avoid the disapproving stares, I put my head down and started writing too: I made out my grocery list.”
