A Wine Connoisseur or simply an Alcoholic?

Last weekend a friend went to France for work and happened to pick up a substantial amount of booze en-route as he went on the ferry. I duly placed an order for wine with him and it has now arrived. So instead of the normal 10 - 12 bottles of wine that I usually have in my house I now have a grand total of 33 bottles of wine and two 10-litre boxes of wine including some Saumur, Muscadet, Vouvray, Crozes Hermitage, Châteauneuf du Pape and five bottles of Champagne (a woman can never have too much Champagne in my humble opinion).

Either I'm on my way to becoming the next Oz Clarke or a rip-roaring alcoholic - time will tell, meanwhile where's the corkscrew?...........

I'd say you're not an alcoholic if you invite your friends to a nice wine tasting sessions. And maybe new internet acquaintances, too. ;-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Wishing you lots of joy with your new garden, too.

I've only had time to read a few posts this morning, will be back for more over the weekend. Happy Friday!

I think this makes you a grown up. I rarely have more than the bottle that's currently open in my house!

Curly K said...

Cat, that's it - 30 odd bottles of vino make you a grown-up - not the impending 35th birthday :-(!
