My first introduction to wine started off as just acquaintances. We casually saw each at formal gatherings, taking sips from unfinished glasses often not understanding why all the grownups love this strange, alcoholic grape drink. It was tart, bitter, and sometimes, positively rancid. Only until well beyond the countless bar crawls that my friendship with wine began to bloom.
Wine and I quickly developed into a kindred fraternity. Reds gave me sense of purpose, filling me with strong conjurings of courage. Whites summoned vignettes of turquoise blue beaches, fresh running streams, and occasionally, zest of fresh picked lemon. Wine truly became a part of my life. A drink for celebration, sadness, struggle, existential life crises or just general boredom. Essentially, a dear friend, always there to comfort and support me.
