$10I’ve been spending more money per bottle lately. Now, either my tastes in wine have changed, or it’s the cost of living increase in the state I now call home. It’s possible that it’s both.
I do have to admit that the $8 a bottle target that I have imposed upon myself has been more difficult to hit since my tastes have grown along with my curiosity. I will continue to aim for $8 but it may end up more around $10, or $12. I just can’t be bound by the price any longer! Well, within reason.
Despite that, I will continue to strive for thrift AND quality.
That said, this latest bottle was a delicious $10 accident. I was returning home from “Mission: Kimchi,” having located a jar at the neighborhood Whole Paycheck, I mean Foods. Between the kimchi pick-up and home I spotted the cute little corner wine shop I only visited once before, Streetcar Wine & Beers, and thought, hey, what goes with spicy pickled cabbage? As one does. So I bee-lined it.
