Welcome to Wine Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a good week!

I generally don’t think of wines as a before-dinner drink or apertif. Have you served wine as a before-dinner drink? If so, what type and why did you choose that particular wine? Or do you prefer another type of drink for an apertif?

You know I'll say champagne, don't you!

I think there are different wines that suit different purposes. I've seen different types of wines listed as aperitifs and digestifs. In fact, here's a listing I found online that might be of interest to you:


We are rarely without a chardonnay, champagne, white zinfandel or sherry in our house. I also often have a good port wine in stock. After all, I'm a "wino" from 'way back, ROFL!
