Keeping a Wine Log

Stephanie

Remember our recent post on Project Books? Here’s a great idea- use a small journal to keep track of your favorite wines. I am still a relative newbie to wine, having only jumped on board about five years ago when I had the chance to sample several regional wineries at a local festival. So I’m still kind of learning about the different varietals and whether or not the $4.99 bottles are as good as the $12.99 bottles. Keeping a log not only helps you with what to buy, but also not to buy. That one Chilean Cabernet was cheap & tasty but gave me the world’s worst headache after 2 glasses…

PS – The wine that brought me on board? A local white Sangria which I still buy for special summer occasions.

  1. Thanks, I’ll give them a try.

    I used to drink Reunite “on ice, that’s nice.” Everyone thought I was a cheap wine-o for it, so I quit.

    Will have to find an occassion that wine would be appropriate for – – got to avoid that drinking alone syndrome.

  3. I used to think all wine was dry until I tried the sweeter varieties. I’m not trying to change your mind, but if you ever have a chance to try a sip of varieties like Concord, (sweet red, tastes like fruity grape juice) Niagra, (sweet white tastes like grape juice) Moscato, (sweet white, slightly bubbly tastes like grape juice) or Vignoles (super sweet, dessert wine) ….. If you ever have a chance to visit a local winery for a tasting, tell them you’d like to try the sweet wines.

  5. I’m not a fan of wine, too dry for my tastes. But I do keep a notebook of favorite resturants and who has the best Blu Cheese dressing and other things I like from each place. This includes not only the food, but the service and the atmosphere. Along with best time and day to go.
