It got me thinking about how much people likely don’t know…..like, for example, we also like wine….
This is the wine in our dining room. There are probably 20 bottles there at least. Three are sparkling wine with the rest being a mix of whites and reds.
And our wine cellar located in the basement. There are few other bottles on the other wine rack. And yes, they are mostly tagged with the year and kind of wine. I’m a bit anal retentive that way.
Periodically, we have to check to make sure we don’t have a forgotten bottle. Like in 2002, when Garbanzo and our friend discovered a 1998 bottle of Chardonnay from a local winery. So, while I was pregnant, they decided to open it because “it’s probably bad anyway.” To quote all that drank from the bottle, “it’s amazing!!” Fuckers. No, I didn’t even have a sip. I was also about 6 weeks away from having the baby, which makes what they did even a greater sin.
The word in the local wine circles is that the 2007 Oregon Pinot is supposed to be amazing. Guess we should start stashing some bottles now. I do see some spaces.
Oh, and for the observant people, the wine cellar is located in this weird little room the previous owners made in the basement. They should never have done any home remodeling or repair jobs. I think I’ve mentioned that. But, you can see a great example as to why in this picture. We haven’t fixed it because it is in the basement which is largely unfinished, there is no heat in that part of the basement, the doorway they left I don’t think will fit a door, and they pretty much fucked it up to the point where it will all need to be redone. And, I’m sure when we rip off the drywall, we’ll see their shitty framing job as well. Gotta love old houses.
