Welcome to Corkscrew Time! We are Bill and Lorna and invite you to join us on a fun wine tasting journey. Along the way we’ll sample varietal wines, test some bar tools – old style and new – and pair a few tasty food dishes with wine to enhance the experience.
If you wonder how this all came about, we’ll take you back in time many, many years when we were at a dine and wine event. As each course was served and wine samples were poured, the attendees were supposed to identify the wine. Bill’s vote was Cabernet Sauvignon and the people near us immediatey disagreed, voicing their own opinions.
We’d recently discovered Cabernet Sauvignon wine and it rapidly became a favorite. The votes were gathered and Bill wasn’t swayed by the other diners, sticking to his vote. When that young man, just legally old enough to drink at the time, was verified as correct, his ego soared. You’ve got to know, that was tough to live with!
What To Expect
Since that evening, we’ve continued to enjoy wine of several varieties and a wide range of prices. A well crafted, expensive wine can be relished and an inexpensive “cardboard carafe” of wine can be an everyday event fitting into any budget.
We want you to enjoy your time here and we promise to keep it fun and informative. Honestly, there are many wines we enjoy and pour often. There are also many varieties we have never tried. It’s easy to “stick with the sure thing.” We’ve decided it’s time instead to do some exploring and discovery and invite you to join us as we test new wines, try new bar tools and even create some food and wine flavor combos.
To say expectations may be too confident at this point since we’re not a proven entity yet, but let’s just say it is our goal to enjoy this journey and we invite you to come along and have fun with us. Lorna even plans some videos – so there will likely be a few chuckles there!
If you ever have any questions, feel free to leave them below and we will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Bill & Lorna
