Wine Drinking Guidelines

On Facebook, my friend made a post wondering if it was too early to drink wine. I responded. I liked the response, so I’m sharing it here, too. May it serve you well.

While it’s never to early for wine, you have to consider what type of wine you are drinking.

Here are Tom’s guidelines to wine drinking throughout the day.

Red wine is not a very good morning or afternoon wine. Red wine is almost exclusively meant for the evening and the night. There is an exception to the morning guideline. If you’ve been drinking all evening and through the night, then you can drink red wine in the morning with your lover while you watch the sun rise.

White wine is not a very good morning wine. But it is a good afternoon wine, especially if it is a spring or summer afternoon. It can also be drunk in the evening with certain meals, but as the night progresses, the better option is red. Of course, there are exceptions based on atmosphere or food or heat. If it’s like 90 at 10 pm, go white.

For the morning it is best to have champagne. The bubbles are just what the body and soul need in the morning. The bubbles can also be enhanced by orange juice. Champagne is not good in the afternoon, unless you are spraying it on someone in celebration of a triumph. Champagne can also work well in the evening, but to bring out all its flavors and joys during evening- or night-time drinking, the champagne should be drunk in a hot tub, especially in a hotel hot tub … heart shaped … in Niagara Falls.
