Yes, cause more alcohol for the young will really help the world...
geez, Arty, take a deep breath. There's nothing wrong with marketing wine to steal 20-somethings away from beer and vodka.
They are welcome to all the ten-dollar screwcap shiraz they can handle. :mrgreen:
Now go have your Ovaltine and crackers, like a good boy. :hug::
Woohoo! Screwtops instead of corks. I have a problem with corks
SHeesh. I'm all for getting more people into wine, but have a little class!!!
wine=the worst thing ever.
Spoken like someone who's never had a good one. :mrgreen:
I can get anyone turned on just by giving them something from my cellar, I'd bet.
Wouldn't you agree there is a huge difference in quality and taste between a fine frothy lager in a tall glass, and some watered-down adolescent boy piss that comes in a can?
honestly ive had all types, all recent years, all brands, all prices...
they still make my ass want to suck buttermilk.
Then you're drinking fine stuff too young. There is a reason we have cellars. Sometimes you buy some precious burgundy, CdP or super Tuscan thinking of how you'll enjoy it, cherish it, in ten to twenty years......they are too robust, big and tannic, to be enjoyed. Some wines are held for a few years at the wineries before even being released for people to snatch up to stash in the cellar.
Some whites can be consumed young, and light reds like beaujolais are specifically made to drink within 2-5 years - but more often than not, wine is better off resting, for a few years at least, in a cool dark place on its side.
That's why so many young people reach for beer and vodka. They're used to the fast food approach. That's what makes this marketing idea such a hoot.
Hi Terri, can I come into your cellar, i have long bottle of nz white with a great screw top...
Sure, matey! .....better bring a NZ sweater, it's cold in there.....
