WHITE WINE CONTEST
apologies to our readers for the lack of regularity with my columns.
The summer has been so hot that I havenít felt like writing after a
long day on the golf course and an evening of fine wine with the missus
(Sometimes-A-Wino Sharon). Of course, I am pleased that Wino Bob accepted my challenge
and reviewed a number of good white wines so that the culturally unbiased
amongst us could seek out a lighter thirst quenching wine for summer imbibing.
Naturally, Wino John is still hanging out there with the Big Reds, but I
have to admit, I was able to get him to down a glass or two of chardonnay while
he vacationed at the beach. (Editor's note: You know,

I donít think that Wino Bob went far enough for the vast majority of white
wine drinkers. Therefore, I am
announcing a contest. The rules are
simple. I would like readers to
submit their five favorite white wines. The
combination of five cannot cost more than $100.
So, for the mathematically challenged, you could purchase a Rombauer
Chardonnay (local price in Maryland about $22/bottle) and average down with a
bottle of Toasted Head Chardonnay (local price about $12/bottle).
need to have your lists sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
by August 31. Wino Bob and I will
decide which list is number one in terms of quality and which list is number 2.
For the first place list winner, I have a Vacu-Vin starter set.
For the second place winner, I have a wine cork trivet kit (kit does not
include the corks). Good luck.
We will hope to announce a winner within two weeks after the deadline
depending on the number of entries (even Wino Bob canít drink 200 wines in a
couple of weeks).
