Wine, Wine And More Wine! Mid-Week Wine Tastings!

Before I get into informing you on wine tastings I want to let you know that an article came out this past week stating that the U.S. wine consumption is up for a 16th consecutive year. There's no doubt that Americans are consuming more wine and passing the word on to others about it.
