Wine Resolutions for 2019 and Beyond!

It’s almost New Year’s… and that means it’s almost time to make a lot of promises to yourself and the rest of the world that you’re never going to keep! Yes, we’re talking about New Year’s resolutions!

But this year, instead of wasting money on a gym membership that you’re not going to use or joining a book club with a bunch of people you don’t actually like, why not stick to resolutions you can and will keep for 2019 and beyond by making it ALL ABOUT WINE?! We’ve got a few, via Bon Appetit, that are going on our list!

Stop trying to make “funky” happen!

The word “funky” as a description, is already a thing. The problem is that it can mean several things which are complete opposites, and those of you who use it to describe wine are confusing everyone else.

Funky can mean unusual and cool, an acquired taste with lots of positives. But it rhymes with – and can also mean – “skunky” or pungent or… well… just plain bad.

Next time you have a “funky” wine you do or don’t like, take some time to think about more specific ways to describe it.

Remember what causes hangovers!

On this one, the article puts it better than we ever could.

Quit It With The Whole “You Don’t Get Hangovers from Natural Wine” BS

Bruh. That is a myth.

Natural wine has fewer additives, and in general a lower alcohol-by-volume (ABV). But the word “lower” does not equate to “non-existent” and there is still alcohol in your wine. If not, what would be the point of drinking it? They keyword here is moderation.

Raise your glass – but only one!

Wine lovers tend to get the idea (generally from wine snobs) that they need a separate cupboard filled with a variety of stemware just to enjoy the occasional glass. Not so.

You may start with a full set of each, but we both know damn well you end up with two mismatching white wine glasses, four big-ass-bowled red wine glasses, and Champagne flute.


Just pick one good glass with a stem, and relax while you wait for the second half of our list!
