You may or may not be aware, but I really like wine. Have I mentioned that before? Probably not. So let’s just clear the air and all get on the same page. Hi, my name is Lindsay. I write this here blog and I love few things or humans more than a generous pour of chilled pinot grigio.
So naturally when Natalie over at Never Serious suggested a Fort Worth wine cellar for our next blate (things are getting pretty serious, guys) I was all, “Just FYI you may have to drag me out of the place at the end of the night.” I go wherever the
wind wine takes me.
Great, now Nana’s going to read this and think I’m a lush.
Meh. She wouldn’t be wrong.
Anyway. Stop judging my life choices and look at these pretty pictures of Times Ten Cellars OOOOOH AHHHHH.
Natalie and I both decided to start with a tasting, which means you sample four of Times Ten Cellars’ delicious, delicious wine. And sample we did. I can’t remember what Natalie had because #wine, but I had their pinot grigio, a dry rosé, a red blend called the Texas Trio and their house cab-sav. Though dry whites (not racist) are usually my jam, these reds made my heart go pitter patter. Which in hindsight could have been because we only ate wine for dinner.
Oh and did you know that rosé and white zinfandel are actually not the same kind of wine? I had no idea. And did you know that white zinfandel is made by mixing together existing red and white wines and only dates back to the 1980s? Me either. Did you also know that rosé originates in France, making it by nature abundantly classier, and dates back to the….I don’t know, Shakespeare times, and that its pink color varies by winery due to the different lengths of time the grapes are left in to stain the wine? I hadn’t a clue. And finally, did you know that I had to google that stuff to make sure I didn’t tell you any lies? That part is also true.
So it turns out I was wrong all these years. I do not in fact hate all pink wine. Y’all, I liked the dry rosé better than the pinot grigio……I don’t even know who I am anymore.
In the end I sampled the four wines, bought a glass of the rosé and also purchased two bottles to take home. I regret only the fact that I did not have it for breakfast. So…yeah. Wine Wednesday. Get on our level.
Peace, love and rosé,
