    Can’t wait to hear more about this topic.  Nothing better than finding some you enjoy, then finding it at a great price.  Fun!

    • I look forward to finding more of those little (cheap) gems and sharing it on my blog. If you try one of my recommendations let me know what you think. 🙂

  • I love how your friend uses your blog to keep track of wines. And even more, I love your illustrations! So simple yet so evocative. I feel the wine in each one.

    • I do too Leora, She was the one who suggested I tell the wine page story. When she suggested it she mentioned how she still uses my wine today. I was so surprised. 🙂

    I think it’s great the way the wine section of your blog started. It’s like inventing something no one knew they needed until you provided it. Well done!

    • Aw, thank-you Cheryl. That is so very true. Isn’t that have so many things get started? :-)))

  • I’ve discovered some very nice wines thanks to your wine posts and I enjoy the background information you provide on the winery or vintner. So it’s run to hear how the wine blog started. You never know where good wine shared with a friend will lead!

    • Hi Donna, Happy Dance!!!! I love that I can do that and that you have been able to find some fun wines along the way as a result of my sharing. 🙂

  • How interesting Susan!. Sounds like you and Elizabeth had a lot of fun together too:-). Thanks for sharing this with us.

    • Thanks and we did Kathy. Sadly, we have not had as many visitor and girl time as we would like of late. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Sounds like you and Elizabeth have shared some great fun wine times over the years! It’s interesting to know how this all began. I have benefited from that fun in that I have purchased wines based on your suggestions many times. So to me, you ARE an expert and I depend on you! LOL

    • We did and hope to do more of it in the future. It so pleases me beyond measure that you have benefited from my wine page. Thank you for the compliment and your very kind words. 🙂

  • I enjoy reading your wine recommendations, Susan. But you know … there’s nothing wrong with including the ones you DON’T like as well, for comparison. i.e. “I didn’t enjoy this wine because. However, I really enjoyed this wine because …” Just some ‘food for thought!’

    • Thanks Doreen, I had thought of that. Because I’m not a sommelier/wine master I find it hard to do a comparison with any credibility. The other problem is I find it difficult to research a wine I didn’t like. Sometimes I’ll try a different wine from the same winery, and I’m able to find one that I feel comfortable showcasing. ?

    I like reading your wine blogs, so I’m glad you are going to keep on adding to them. Being enthralled with Italy, we tend to buy Nero d’Avolas an Chiantis, but every so often, we indulge in another type. Most always reds. i’ll let you know some of my favorites.

    • Thank you Rose. I have often wondered if my wine page offers something my readers like and enjoy. It good to know that you do. Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll be checking it out. ?

  • I just started a bit of a wine addict myself, I buy a bottle a week now, but I think it also has to do with fact that I’m cooking alot at home too, so why not get a good wine to go with dinner!

  • I agree with Doreen. It can also be beneficial and educational for readers to see reviews that pinpoint what someone doesn’t like about a wine. I have a harder time with that too. My friend had me try and organic, sulfite free red blend last night, and my response was, “Gross.” Only on the second glass did I pin down that it was too dry for my palate and the taste reminiscent of shoeshine polish 😉

    • Aw, then I may have to consider that as part of my wine page Jeri. A wine post as to what constitutes a bad wine versus a good wine might be fun. There really is a ways to describe that. ?

  • I was wondering how your wine page came about! What a great story. And to your picture with the question of “or” in between the red and white wine, I say “AND!”

    • It is kind of interesting to hear how things come about. Mine is not nearly as interesting a some I’ve read. I agree the “AND!” would be a much better thing to insert… ?.

  • I actually reference your wine archives often when I want to write about wine! 😉 I just found an un-oaked Chardonnay I would love to talk about, but I don’t feel quite ready til I research some more…onto your wine page!!

    • What is the wine Mary. I would love to hear more. As far as writing about wine, I’d say go for it. ?
