Question: What’s that one bottle of wine that changed your life? Explain how!
I’m Canadian, so beer drinking is sort of second nature to me, and what I’ve done since my teen years (yes, you can legally drink at 18 in Canada). Wine was never really my thing until my 21st birthday.
For my 21st birthday, I had a huge South Florida pool party with tons of food, friends and adult beverages. A friend of mine brought a case of Veuve Clicquot to pop for the occasion. Not sure if it was the wine itself or the fun of celebrating with some bubbly, but I was hooked. From that day forward, I’ve wanted to experience all sorts of wine and to learn as much about pairing it with food (my other passion) as possible.
