When it comes to alcohol, beer is the friendly next-door neighbor we all like, whiskey is the rich friend we want to be seen with and are content knowing nothing about, tequila’s the crazy friend who knows the best underground clubs (and we never want to be seen publicly with), and wine is that crush we’re too intimidated to talk to and might even end up disliking because we think they’re bossy.
But – just like in a real-life crush scenario – they’re probably quite nice and good for us… if we disregarded propaganda and took the time to know them. Continue reading “You’ve Probably Asked Yourself One of These Wine Questions…”
Possibly one of the most misconceived facts about wine is the proper temperature to serve or drink it.

Happy Friday the 13th!
Wait. What? No one ever says that!
In Western cultures, Friday the 13th is a harbinger of bad luck and not a happy holiday. Personally, my favorite number is 13 and I got no beef with Friday – so I’m chill!
