Forget the moon landing. One of the most impressive and telling accomplishments of man is the ability to take nearly any grain, fruit, or vegetable, and produce a buzz-inducing libation. Wine is one of the earliest.

Had you asked us in high school what went well with cheese, we would have said tomato sauce, crust, and some pepperoni. Today, thanks to our education, maturation, and piss poor decision making by numerous family members to not serve beer at their weddings, we’ve come to appreciate wine. Much like polyester plaid pants used to go with golf, wine went with snobbery. No longer, thanks to our good friend Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV.

Get to know him and TTP head writer Chris Craig as they banter about wine, hoops, and The Toilet Paper.

Chris digs grapes more than Clay Aiken digs nuts. That’s a mouthful!

Quote

The vine bears three kinds of grapes: the first of pleasure, the second of intoxication, the third of disgust.

Diogenes, Greek philosopher

Sounds like somebody woke up with some real barkers back in his day.

Words
varietal
Retweet

noun.     A wine made from a single named grape variety. By law, 75% of a varietal wine must be made from the same grape. Some examples of varietal wines are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. 

Used in a sentence: Unlike the missionary that preferred a varietal, the porn director preferred variety over missionary.

Fact

The cost of wine is not an indicator of quality, as there are many factors that have an effect on the price of a wine, like shipping, labeling, mark-up from the Italian mobster that stole the truck, etc…
