How much wine am I supposed to drink?
 
There are no directions on the bottle.

There's a reason you can't get the cork back in.

It probably says 750ml on the outside....

footfootfoot 10-12-2020 08:42 PM

It says that on the outside but there's nothing left on the inside

I could barely get it off the corkscrew.

Maybe you want a better corkscrew. Was it really that stiff to unscrew?

I only buy the worm type, never the auger type.

If it's as stiff to unscrew as to screw, you might want to reduce the little blue pills.

If you're buying the worm type, you might want to increase them.

The last wine I bought was Mogen David Blackberry. 3 liter bottle, I think.

Attachment 71733

It was ~$18.

So, it depends on how much wine money ya got?

Screw cap, btw. Screw a cork. (<--See that thar, what I did?:)) Ya snooty bastidges.

Isn't that like syrupy-sweet? 10% alcohol could mean that there are a lot of unfermented sugars or that it wasn't so sweet to begin with. I'm guessing it's the former.

Until I saw Gravdigr's party bottle, I'd always considered wine to be delivered in single sitting containers, irrespective of the number of wineglasses involved.

Horribly so. And thick.

I use a really tall, fat glass, and, hang on for this now, pour it over ice.[/redneck] Yeah, I know.:facepalm:

It thins the stuff down from being overly thick.

Mix that with sprite and you're boujie

monster 10-18-2020 11:49 PM

nah, boujie requires La Croix

lumberjim 10-19-2020 08:09 AM

Ah, oui.

footfootfoot 10-19-2020 02:31 PM

Seltzer and ice and it would be like grape soda for (almost) grownups.
