Virginia Wines ….. Quality? Pricing? And who is drinking this overpriced stuff?

October 5th in Ted’s Pagan Tiki Shack located in Manassas Virginia…..

I have said for over a decade that Virginia Wines were massively overpriced at every level of quality. Two weekends ago I went to a local winery and did some tasting. Red wines by the glass at 10-11 dollars and 30-38 dollars a bottle, wines that I didn’t think were worth $3.99 a bottle. $14 dollars to do the tasting. California vintners would never have had the balls to put this stuff out.  Wines that should have been dumped in the parking lot. A recent article in the Washington Post surmised that it was the very young wine drinkers who were mainly drinking this swill, well I guess so, young and stupid. The older wine drinkers have found California, France, Chili, Argentina, Washington State…..and spend their money more wisely.

Truly an uneducated young wine drinker is the Virginia Wine Industries best friend.

Friends don’t let friends drink Virginia Wine.

Two women asked us at the winery what they should do….I said go to California.

Cabernet Franc Is it really Horse Urine? Yes it is

Dateline June 29, 2016 from the Tiki Bar that was devastated by a massive thunder storm last night, not like Hiroshima or Nagasaki, or Biblical but a little bit less…

I really think that all purveyors, growers, stupid consumers, wine snobs, wine hoes, retailers, wholesalers and restaurants that sell it should be incarcerated. These people should be put on the no fly list and there addresses and contact information should be forwarded to the Authorities so that they can be imprisoned.  These people need to be treated like the HOA (Homeowners Association) and certain relatives (you know who you are).

I even had a t-shirt design made with the saying, “Cab Franc, Is it really Horse Urine?

The real reason they club baby seals in Canada is not for the pelts it’s because those cute little baby seals drink Cabernet Franc. And the real reason, not in the history books, that the US Civil War was fought was not to save the Union or Abolish Slavery but that the Southerners were growing Cabernet Franc grapes and the North had just to much.

When California has the big one, earthquake not heart attack, we are praying in a pagan sort of way that all the Cab Franc vines sink into the Pacific Ocean into one of those massive sea trenches.

Cabernet Franc is a Bio Hazard Is it Horse Urine?
