A recent scientific study (I heard this in the hallway) shows that because of the current economy crisis, folks have stopped drinking wine. They opt for either beer or hard liquor. Wine is supposedly more expensive. Beer is beer and hard liquor gives more bang for the buck.
The wine makers everywhere are very very worried. How are they going to survive? Who is going to buy that 45 dollar bottle of wine? Who bought a 45 dollar bottle of wine in the first place?
I on the other hand worry about the cost of a wine bottle. Will it go up? How will I survive? Will I have to give up wine and start sipping on bourbon?
So this weekend, I am going to do some research. For you and the wine drinkers and the wine makers and the economy. I am going to buy some inexpensive wine, drink it, and post a blog about inexpensive wines. Something under 10 dollars. I was thinking of buying 10 bottles of wine. 5 reds and 5 white. But I think my hubby will probably freak out if I buy 100 dollars of wine. So I will settle for 2 reds and 2 white.
This will be my contribution to the economy. Drink wine and prosper. And assure all my blog readers that you can drink wine. Even during an economy crisis.
See how nice I am?
