After OPUS 1 , the wine out there isnt worth serving on an economy airflight. Elitist prick.

Finally a thread I can relate to LOL.I drink a lot of wine,mostly Sutter Home,$9.99 a bottle.and that's for the large bottle A few years ago a friend gave me a bottle of Chateau Capbern Saint-Estephe 1926 for my birthday,must have been expensive. Karen and I and she opened it and drank it ,then decided to finish the evening with Sutter Home.It's all about perspective

I watched one of those episodes of CRIBS once.

The snotty airhead was showing off her wine rack stocked with a collection of fine grape. Went on and on.

Two minutes later she was showing what was in her refridgerator as they do in the show and right there at the front of the shelf with the spigot showing was a box of Come Alive for a Dollar Five chit wine.

Probably drinks it out of a plastic Ronald McDonald cup.

Hate wine eletists.

By the way, Nort, if you know yoga, it sounds like he might hire you to be his boat mechanic.

That's a problem??? Next thing that'll happen is you'll be telling us it's wrong to bring 3 of your own bottles to a dinner.....
