When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Start Drinking!

Sadly, Our wine "fridge", the temperature of which should never drop below 46 degrees, decided to go postal on us and somehow got down to a frigid 23 degrees. Which is exactly what temperature is needed to freeze wine! And did you know, when wine freezes it pushes all the corks out (if you're lucky the bottles won't explode)? So as you can see from the pictures, we have suffered a loss of near epic proportions (ah, really we're over it but doesn't "epic proportions" just sound better?).

Some of this wine had plans to be saved for quite a few more years. With that now impossible, we are going to be learning how wine tastes after it's been frozen.

So far, not too bad.

Oh yeah, there's nothing like a delightful glass of red wine in the morning! I'm so sorry your wine fridge went on the fritz. I hope you'll get completely snowed/iced in this weekend so there will be nothing other to do than drink, drink, drink!
