Apparently, according to them, it was a rather old-fashioned drink and that there are more groovy wines to drink than a “Charddie”.
I have thought about that teasing and reflected on what it is about tastes and favourite drinks, that make us sink into a regular familiar pattern of sticking with what we always order.
When I first met Tezza I was not as fussy about wine, as I am these days. Maybe in some ways I have become a bit of a snob about such things – but I figure I work hard and in those times of relaxation and conviviality, I should be tasting what I like. I like to think I am more discerning.
I am not a guzzler by any measure, but when I do partake in a wine either with dinner or sharing a glass during a late afternoon catch up with a #galpal, it needs to add to the total ambience and feeling of good times.
Even with cocktails or spirits …. Can’t see the point in ordering a Scotch on the rocks, when what I like is an Aperol Spritz.
Actually the real problem is not that the young ones were taking the mickey, (I don’t mind some affectionate jibbing), the problem is that these days my tastebuds have developed to rather enjoy a limited selection of wines. Some of which are only consumed on special occasions as they tend to be a little costly.
