For the letter W, I'm writing about my favorite wine.
I'll tell you upfront, I've only tried about three wines in my life, so don't confuse me with an expert, but I know what I like. For someone who doesn't really like alcohol, this is a very nice wine.
It's called Sangue De Guida, which means - are you ready? - Blood of Judas. Icky name.
A story is told about how, after its creation by Italian monks long ago, the nuns became too enamored with this wine. To stifle their affection for the drink, the monks named it Blood of Judas, hoping the creepy name would deter them from swilling the stuff.
Fact or Poppycock, who knows, but it's a fun story, isn't it?
This wine is sweet and a bit bubbly. It's great with an ice cube to keep it very cold. Half a wine glass of this nectar will take me though a rented movie. Then I'm ready for bed.
I've just told you everything I know about wine. Everything. I even went to a wine tasting once and can't remember a thing about it. I just can't hold my liquor.
Chocolate? That's another story.
