I've scoured the wine mags to find something - an event, a headline, an image - anything in the wine world more compelling than this week's elections for the next US President. I was briefly entertained by The Cellarist article on "Wine States". But as far as entertaining news or events in the wine world you might be interested in this post-Election Friday - in comparison - I am nonplussed. So rather than bring you some unenthusiastic post summarizing the latest in scientific wine news (like wine might prevent dementia or that Florida introduced a new table grape to the market) or talk about the latest in wine business/economics (e.g. the Chateau Montelena sale fell through this week), I'm going to give you the floor.
Whether you are happy, upset, hopeful or scared in the post-election days, I have a feeling you were drinking something Tuesday night. This is your moment, ye closet-blog readers! Tell us about your own private event on Election night, however large or small.
What were you drinking in anticipation of The End of An Era? (Bonus points given for those who were drinking something with a clever/thematic name; double points if your comment offers tasting notes, too.)
