The Wrath of Grapes

Posted by The Wine Whore |


Friend and fellow wine lover, Jen Senel sent me some pictures the other day that made me stop and think. We travel through every day of our lives making many decisions. We choose everything from the food we eat, to the people we decide to help. Some decisions are good, many more are bad, but either way we learn about life. Personally, every decision I make seems to teach me something new about the world and who I am as a person.

The same applies to my interactions with wine. I choose which wines I like, why I like them or even what it is that I hate about them. Good or bad, every new experience teaches me something new about my palate. This led me to think about the bad experiences.

Have I committed any wine sins along the my journey.

How many of these cardinal wine sins are you guilty of ever committing? I know I have committed quite a few even in just the past month. Are there any you would add to the list?



Lust - Drinking wine from anything other than a wine glass (i.e. plastic cup, right from the bottle, etc)



Gluttony - Drinking so much wine, you get sick and/or hungover



Wrath - Pouring a perfectly good bottle of wine down the drain



Sloth - Drunkenly spilling a glass or bottle on someone (including yourself)



Envy - Spitting out perfectly good wine


Pride - Accidentally shattering a cork while opening a bottle



...and the worst wine sin anyone could ever commit:

Greed - Not sharing wine with others



We are all out of time for today�s session. Tomorrow, I'll wrap up the week's wine affairs including this week's episode of TWWTV. In the meantime, share your last cardinal wine sin here. Also check out Jen's site for more cool wine photos like the 7 Deadly Zins pics included in this post.

Being a wine lover, I enjoyed going through your blog. Viogner grapevine from California is my favourite.

Hello Hampers!

I think that is one of the best compliments I could ever receive. It means so much to me to know that people who love wine as much as I do enjoy this site and reading about my affairs. Waking up and reading your comment has made my day.

I am also a fan of CA Viogner! What's your current favorite?

Cheers!

Very good pictorial - entertaining! The label caught my eye - 7 Deadly Zins - I work with the winemaker over at Michael David Winery that creates that Lodi California Goodness! - Nice wine and very nice people.

Thank you! I read so many of these, I decided I had to try to make mine stand out at least visually. :)

I'll have to stop over at Michael David and meet them when I am out there hopefully very soon!

Cheers!
