The Dailey Dose: Happy HalloWine!

wine1 300LEXINGTON, Ky (10/31/13) —Yesterday, I was delivered groundbreaking news — news that would change my day around and leave me questioning everything. Yesterday, I was told that we are going through a global wine shortage.

I’m going to let that sink in for a minute.

Yes, a shortage. Wine is growing in popularity all over the world and due to bad weather in France and Argentina last year, the production of wine fell by more than 5 percent, which is the lowest it has been since the 1960s.

According to a news release, Americans consume 12 percent of the world’s wine but produce only 8 percent, and we are only getting thirstier. Consumption of wine rose 2 percent last year.

With all that being said, we are in the middle of a crisis.

There is a majority of us that like to have a glass of wine after work or with dinner and there are some coined as your everyday “WineO.” Whichever you are, this information probably left you concerned.

With the news earlier this week about the shortage in chocolate and now this, we are left not knowing what to do. My advice? Stock up.

Trader Joe’s is known for their wine and serving the everyday oenophiles. When walking into Trader Joe’s you will see to your left the famous Charles Shaw wine, also known as “Two Buck Chucks.” The price is now $2.99, but it is the best, cheap wine I have ever had.

Along with Charles Shaw on the shelf, there is a variety of sparkling, white, red and dessert wines that are available with a storing, tasting and even a glossary for the “appropriate wine terms.”

“Wine is bottled poetry.” –Robert Louis Stevenson
