Review: Vestini Trebbiano (2005)


A friend of mine came to my apartment for a movie night. I asked him to bring wine, because it’s only polite. He brings a bottle of red and a bottle of white. I don’t really drink white wine, and this is probably the only bottle of white that I’m going to review any time soon.

So–  we don’t drink it. I think we end up watching “Land Before Time IV” on Netflix. Not important. The next morning, I go with my son to the farmers market by my house to buy some spices from the Zesty herb and spice guy. Not important. Long story short, I come home and I make this fantastic herb-chicken and pasta dish. I decide to venture out of my box and crack open the bottle of white wine.

Well. I was surprised at how sweet it was… It was a little bubbly– as if it were champagne at one point but then forgot and gave up. I only had one glass, because it tasted pretty disgusting after I got over the fancy feeling of attempting to pair actual wine with actual food.

I think that pretty much sums up this wine. I’m having trouble finding the bottle or any information about it online. My friend told me that he got it at the little run down liquor store by my house and I highly doubt that he paid more than $6 for it.

Pairs well with: The chicken and pasta dish that I spent and hour on that my son wouldn’t touch.


Review: Chocolate Shop – The Chocolate Lovers Wine


What’s awesome about the Chocolate Shop wine is that I have a recipe!!!

Here it is:

Take a bottle of Bosco, a bottle of pure acetone and the tears of a hobo-clown and mix well.

I just saved you a few bucks, your dignity, and maybe even your life.

You’re welcome.
