Cheers...keep it going....

We started out with 32, and are down to 28.  Trying to limit our consumption to 2 bottles a week. 😄 

Our rack holds 48, plus we have a smaller rack that can hold up to 12.  We used to have all full at all times, as we loved visiting wineries and going to wine events, often coming home with 6-12 bottles in our travels.  When you know they can't ship to your state, and you won't be in the area again and you really like the wine, well...you gotta buy while you can.

Over time, the wine started to bother our acid reflux, so we limited our events and wine. Now we are slowly trying to finish up out stash, some bottles date back to 2012.  Most are still tasty though!  Others, we kinda wonder what we were thinking...

I just opened my last bottle of Zinfandel. I still have plenty of beer left, but either I've got to start learning to like white wine and port (all I have left for wines) or I'll have to make another Zin run soon.

Zin is mostly what I drink at home, since I can get a really nice Old Vine variety (Bogle) for 8 or 9 bucks a bottle; less if I ever decide to buy a full case instead of my usual 4-6 bottles at a pop.

Now might be the time to pull that full case trigger!

@JLMoran Wow, I remember Rumple Minz. Used to drink that in college because it would "do the trick" and give us minty breath!

Never tried Rumple, but during my college nights we would drink Bud Light chased down with shots of Peppermint Schnapps...thank goodness social media wasn't around back in the 80s! 🙂

Also drank it in college, mainly in the winter. Put a couple shots into a mug of hot cocoa and you get a Peppermint Patty. (Which is what I had pictured there)

REALLY tasty!
