Okay, so I guess it's not a huge surprise that I like this type of wine, but maybe more of a surprise that I, in fact, like wine in general. Most people who know me know that I am a bourbon snob. I even have a subscription through flaviar and get new bourbons from all around the world every three months. It's freaking awesome.

Though I don't drink it super-often, I have always been a fan of wine. I don't know nearly as much about the process of what goes into making a delicious bottle of wine as I do about bourbon whiskeys, but it doesn't change the fact that they're equally as delicious. It had been probably more than a year since I have had any wine, that is until last weekend when my wife and I went away for the weekend. We stayed at the Senator Inn and got spa services at the Cloud 9! It was a fantastic treat and I picked up a big bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion. What kind did I get? Well, my favorite of course.

I picked up one of the BIG  bottles of Barefoot Riesling. If you've never had it, Riesling is a delicious and very fruity white wine. I have no idea what it pairs well with because I'm not a wine expert, but I can tell you it goes pretty well with sweet mesquite BBQ Pringles.

I should also mention that I enjoy tasting all kinds of wines, reds included. But I always seem to come back to the Riesling, it is just so good! I also enjoy Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, too.

So there you have it, a little look into wines that I like- ya know, in case you're planning on picking a bottle up for me for absolutely no reason. But, if you do, get the big one, it fits better in my fridge ;)
