I learned two things today. First thing – if you live near a University don’t go to the wine store on a Thursday night. Thing two – if you are in a wine store don’t listen to college kids recommending wine to their friends. They are not the discerning demographic group. I should have known that from the kid purchasing a bottle of vodka and a 6 pack of Miller Light cans – but that’s not even what tipped me off. It was a conversation that I overheard in the aisle next to me.
“Girls’ Night Out is a great Rosé” was the comment that almost made me drop my imported British beer. I really think we need to change our entire Education system. Girls’ Night Out is NOT a great rosé – neither is the Girls’ Night Out Sangria in a 1.5 mL bottle. Girls’ Night Out may be tasty, it may be a great value, it may even be cute – but we do need to educate our youth in the ways of wine. Muga and Gran Fuedo are great Rosé wines – as is practically anything from Provence – but a wine with a pink sundress on the label is not an indication of a great wine. Sorry girls – but I hope you did have a nice girls’ night out .
