The Enthusiast Beckons...

...come on...comment as to what kind of wine buyer you are!

Please?

Enthusiast?
Image Seeker?
Savvy Shopper?
Traditionalist?
Satisfied Sipper?
Overwhelmed?

A mixture...er, a cuvée of each? But which ones?

[Just to have it said, I didn't construct these categories. They were constructed by Constellation, the largest owner of wineries worldwide. These were the categories they defined after doing years of research nation-wide. It was something called the Wine Genome Project.]

Overwhelmed, but wanting to learn more.

enthusiast, minus the 1.5L bottles, with a small hint of savvy

TOTALLY the savvy shopper.

Satisfied sipper. Mostly because I am cheap. I don't necessarily want to know what I am missing out on because then I would have to spend more on wine. I do love the beverage though. And, I don't buy 1.5 liter bottles.

Oh geez, I guess I must be a postmodern wine buyer, because all these categories are just totally bumming me out!

I occupy space in the Enthusiast, Savvy Shopper, and Traditionalist groups . . . but occasionally sneak around in the other areas, too.

I don't drink wine daily, therefore, don't buy 1.5L often. My tastes have improved, which sadly means I don't tend to do well for under about 10 bucks for everyday wine.

Even if I didn't drink wine at all, I would still regularly watch Wine Library TV on the web.

BTW - I have totally gotten into WLTV because of you. He's a dork, but I enjoy it all the same. :)
