Throwback of the Day, where I’ll post some old random picture from the past and share a story about it.
Worst wine ever.
A little vanity went into this purchase, about two years ago. It bears my same name, after all. I had been searching all over town for a chocolate wine, similar to ChocolatRouge, which I absolutely love, but this bottle wasn’t it. No liquor stores, in this town, sell it, anymore, so we thought we’d give the Desire’e a shot, based on the recommendation of the store owner.
This stuff was disgusting. It wasn’t really chocolate wine, at all. It was just some nasty, vinegar-tasting, nonsense, with no hint of chocolate that I could detect. My partner and I tried in vain to drink it, but I could barely manage three or four sips before I gave up. He finished the bottle, eventually, over time.
I kept the bottle, though. It’s not every day that you find something with your name on it (I can never find keychains or mugs with my name on it). So, although the wine was crap, the bottle made a mighty fine keepsake.
