OK I know why bother but some people can’t drink alcohol but might enjoy the taste of wine or beer. I recently had an opportunity to try a few. The wines are actually made as wine first (cabs, merlots, etc)( then the alcohol is removed. The taste is very close to the original wine without the buzz. On the beer side St Pauli Girl from Germany is as good as the alcohol version. It would be hard to tell them apart in a blind taste test.


Saint Patrick’s Day Wine?

Is it appropriate to serve green wine on St Paddy’s Day? I don’t think so! We will be hosting a St Paddy’s Day Party this evening with beer including Guinness and wine. The wine will be red and the beer will be dark. Tables and decorations can be green but our drinks should be pure. You work hard to make a great wine, don’t ruin it by adding coloring to it. Since everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, I wish all my Irish friends and readers a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day. Get home safe and then have a drink. I toast you on this great day.
