Wine 101

I just wanted to share this video with you....

Monty Python's John Cleese has an undying love for wine and his aim in this Food Network special was to make the experience of wine less intimidating for the novice wine-drinker.

Definitely an informative video for those with little knowledge of wine, but also interesting and entertaining for those of you who may know a little bit more. We loved it!!


On a similar note, Christopher & I stopped at a Wine "Super Store" in Delaware last week on our way home from Annapolis, MD. (Delaware's great, no sales tax!) We bought a few bottles and opened the first one a few nights ago...

The first one we tried was this bottle of Zinfandel produced by Oak Grove Reserve Wines. It was one of the cheaper bottles we bought (less than $10) but came recommended by one of the wine store workers as a "great bottle for a cheap price." If you spot it at your local wine store, pick up a bottle or two! It was delicious and perfect with our meaty pasta dinner. Mmmm!


  1. Oak Grove was the name of the Presbyterian Church in Transfer where the "McDonald's" were members.

  2. oh wow! that's such a silly little coincidence, isn't it?
