Wines at home

If you are not convinced I’m not really into wine, you’ll probably be after looking at my poor wine “collection”. It’s not really a collection as such, just a bunch of wines meant to be drank. I figured I’d blog about them here, so that I can remember how much I paid for each one of them and where I got it, so I can know which ones deserve a special occasion. And for me a $20 wine is a special occasion wine.
