Why should you try wine? And is it wrong to love sweet wine or instead what connoisseurs call dessert wine? Sweet wine is loved by a good number of people and continue to be enjoyed by more. If you are warming your feet for it, or are interested in trying a bit of wine, here is why you should.
1. It is classy
To start with, wine is the most classy and sophisticated drink. If someone says they were on a vodka bender, it sounds like heartbreak and depression, but a wine bender, well, what do you think?
2. Wine pairs well with food
If you are eating something cheesy, pair it with red wine, and if meaty, white wine will give you lots of magic. With meat, you will feel like you have never taken it before. It will leave a heavenly aftertaste in your mouth. Try it with dinner sometime.
3. It is a social drink
There are about four drinks in a bottle of wine (give or take). While you might want to chug it down alone, why not have a few friends over for a few bottles and voila, you have a small gang of friends happy with your wine!
4. There’s a bottle for every pocket.
There’s wine for whatever budget you might have. Whether you want a $10 bottle or a $1000 rare bottle, all the fun is a coin or a credit card away. But do stay away from the jugs if you are on a tight budget.
5. There are health benefits attached.
A glass of wine every day goes a long way to improve your immunity; keep stroke and heart diseases at bay and a host of other lifestyle diseases. It is also worth mentioning that each glass contains plenty of healthy antioxidants. And that is just from one glass.
6. Wine accommodates everyone
No matter your taste, there is a bottle that you will fit into. There’s sweet wines (like a moscato) and sharp tastes (sauvignon blanc): dark cabs and bright Tuscan reds. There is simply no boxing wine to one particular blend. It covers the entire taste spectrum and will accommodate beer drinkers and vodka lovers alike. Look around a bit and find a blend that speaks to your soul.
7. Wine is a complex drink
Depending on how it is layered, from smoke, herbs, flowers, etc.; there are plenty of ways to describe wine and its taste. All of which have a rich blend on their own. While you do not need to know all the fancy descriptive words that paint a picture of the bottle you are on, having a bit of backstory will increase your appreciation of what taste your tongue picks.
8. No bloated stomach
Don’t you just hate a bloated stomach? Well, the good thing with wine, get this… it does not give you a bloated stomach at all. This means you can down bottles upon bottles with no fear of stomach problems. That is another taker by the way, drinking lots of wine does not make you an alcoholic. You ever heard of a wine connoisseur suffering from alcoholism?
9. Great for celebrations
Do you have a birthday, an anniversary, or any special occasion? Wine is the go-to drink for such. It pairs exceptionally well with them, leaving you feeling nice and fresh rather than nursing a nasty hangover the next morning. Wine also has a pleasant smell that will not leave you reeking of a distillery once you’re done with all the fun.
10. Don’t throw away the bottles
Have you seen how beautiful the DIY wine-bottle crafts are? And the good thing is, you can make one for yourself at home. You will only need a bit of paint and the internet to get the tutorial from. Play with different designs to get the right one for you, and you can also sell them as a bonus.
Wine has been immortalized and popularized by shows such as game of thrones and other epic movies that come with a great glass of wine. Wine is also useful for that. You can swap the popcorn for wine like an ancient lord and relax with the movie or film playing.
