wine collection tagsForget the Cosmos, Tequila Sunrises & Margaritas, I am abolutely a wine girl. Give me the jammiest Zinfandel you have and I am a happy girl. I have always wanted a wine collection and even though, at this point,

I do not have any sort of cellar or cooler I have acquired quite a hodgepodge of vintages, my own little wine collection.

As I was going through the bottles that I have, I was amazed by the memories that some of them brought; the wineries that were visited, the sales reps that left samples and the friends that had brought gifts. Just like smells can bring back a familar flashback, the aquisition of these vinos did the same for me. I am sure that the drinking of them will create a whole new set of stories to be told.

I don’t know how many bottles actually make up a wine collection, after some research it appears between 50-100 is the average. The dictionary definition of a collection is: a group of objects or an amount of material accumulated in one location, esp. for some purpose or as a result of some process. I have definitely achieved that!
