I drink wine because I enjoy the flavor, the complexities of all the different varietals and because I think sharing a bottle of wine with someone is more personal than just sitting down and ordering "drinks". I've been fortunate, through blogging, to meet other like-minded enthusiasts who help further my enjoyment by teaching me more about wine, offering suggestions, and just being fun, nice people who I can enjoy a "virtual" bottle of wine with. I consider myself lucky to be able to call them friends.
As the new (temporary) header suggests, I recently had my first taste of wine snobbery. I had heard that these people exist, but they are so off my radar that I hadn't seen them in action...until now. I am very disappointed in their childish antics and bashing of others they have never met. Wine, to me, is for enjoyment. To be so obsessed that it reflects negatively on one's self totally contradicts my reason for drinking and sharing MY opinions.
These individuals have made me want to drink Margaritas! Are there Marg snobs too? Gosh I hope not.
