  1. Very informative post, Maam Joy. I’m not much into wines but Hubby and I occasionally drink red wine for its health benefits. I know a friend who’s into wines. He actually visit other states/countries just for checking out wines and wineries. I know great wines can be very expensive too. 🙂

  2. I have to admit that I’ve always been intimidated by wine tasting events :). I can blame that on my ignorance when it comes to wine! I never knew that you could make a profit out of wine collecting. That’s awesome.

  3. I’m always surrounded by wines and grapevine yards but I never got the liking to it…maybe when I’m older I’ll sit with my husband in the kitchen and will talk about our lives over wine…just like how my mom-in-law and her hubby does…everyday… 😀

  4. now that you mention we could earn a hefty amount of money in wine collecting, I would love to try that out:D bwahahah I am such a sucker for earning money LOL

  5. Oh boy! I’m no alcohol drinker so i cannot share anything about it hehehehe. I’ve never tried beer either, I settle with sodas instead. But i know red wine is good for your held and doctors advice would be one glass a day of red wine will be helpful to your health.

  6. I only get to taste wines on special occasions as I and hubby are just occasional drinkers. But it’s nice to have some wines in store at home to serve to guests.

  7. Great tips you have here. But me and hubby don’t drink. We only have champagne for special occasion. Although sometimes I buy red or white wine to use in cooking 🙂

  8. We always get wine as gifts but we regift them as we don’t drink much. My husband doesn’t want to collect wine. He’s afraid that he might get alcoholic.
