That's probably because I swore off alcohol last year.

Price of wine has gone through the roof the past few years, Dam Chicoms buying up tankers of the stuff. And everytime a country who in the past hasn't been known for good wine starts producing good wine nobody keeps their dam mouths shut.

Pot. Everyone who can switched to pot, because it's healthier.

I have a bottle of Red Blend, not too pretentious, not too cheap, that I bought for that special occasion when I am (in the mood / special lady is visiting) over five months ago. And unfortunately I have not been in the mood for a wine hangover, and Miss Special Lady has been overlooking me for some time now.

Fark you wineries. This ain't a millenial is killing shiat thing because I ain't a millenial. Your product just sucks. I have a bottle of cheap ass Lauders Scotch that I sucked down and gladly replaced about four times since I bought you.

If I am going to create a substitute for the cheap assed mental health care industry in the U.S.A. with over the counter cheap assed self medication, cheap assed scotch can sure the F can do better than cheap assed moderately priced wine.

I like the taste of wine but it literally makes me sick... I can drink a shiat ton of beer or whatever and be fine but wine kills me.  Probably something immunologic or the sulfite preservatives

I pick up a ($14-$18) bottle of wine on my way home from work just about every night. There's a ton of great wines out there these days. My wife doesn't complain about it, like she would if I brought beer or hard liquor home in equivalent quantities.

/Currently trying to finish off a keg I bought to cerebrate her birthday this weekend (with a bunch of friends)
//They left a couple of nice bottles of wine for her
///As well as cava and many craft beers (two friends own a brewery). We're very fortunate!

Me too, although I swore off alcohol yesterday. And the day before that. An the day before that one too. After tonight, no more alcohol. for sure.

This is my fault.  I need to change my handle to Whiteclawdrinkingman
 
2020-01-14 05:30:14 AM  
OK. I'll start drinking again.

Because legal weed makes alcohol irrelevant.

I can't drink alcohol with fruit juice. I can drink gallons of alcohol or fruit juice separately but, one screwdriver makes me feel like I'm being stabbed repeatedly in the gut, for hours. Happens every time, no matter what fruit juice & alcohol I combine.
You know what never has any unpleasant side-effects though? Yes, weed. All the weeds.

My first thought. All the housewives switched to hard seltzer because they think it's going to make them thin.

You joke, but I think that's a part of it - wine has gone downmarket.  Winery tasting rooms are filled with groups of loud women on a GURL TRIPPP!!!  Wine culture has turned into tacky "Mommy Juice" paraphernalia.  Pretentious tasting and commenting about notes and body has moved on to craft beer, scotch, and bourbon.

I've been drinking hard liquor since I started drinking, but my wine has gone down the past few years in favor of hard cider. Also, people aren't organizing wine tours as much as when I was younger.

Trumps wine tarrifs are hurting the wine sales? Nope farking millennials again.

Mmm mmm spin!

I can kinda understand hard seltzer, definitely understand cocktails, but who the fark drinks NA beer if they're not a recovering alcoholic? I've known a good number of people that drink only NA beer, but it's almost entirely because they had to stop drinking any alcohol at all, for health or lifestyle reasons.

/I mostly drink vodka at the house and wine at a restaurant.
//I've drank a bit of NA beer in my time, mostly with a friend that didn't allow the real stuff. It's meh at best.

I still prefer beer.
