Years of Wine

"So tonight I’ll be serving up anything and everything wine; we’ve got red, white, and all the colors in between. Or perhaps you prefer a wine cocktail- spritzers, mulled wine, sparkling cocktails, or sangria!"

Started out on Boone Farm’s Apple.  
In my early twenties it was all the rage.

Moved to Yago, Almeden, Mateus,
and the Blue Nun stage.

Eschewed the sweet when
palate changed.

Now I’ve found organic wines
and ensuing headaches went away–
Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. Ah, yes, not only does wine mature with the years, but so do we and our tastes. Wonderful!

    Oh my, I had forgotten about that ol’ Mateus. The bottle was better than the contents.

    I look the “growth” in your tastes of wine. I hate to think what I drank in college and considered it wine. If you like organic and you like Chardonnay, try Bonterra. It’s excellent.

    Going to raise my glass of Pinot Grigio to you in a cheer this evening!
