FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRINK SWILL!

Pairing

Your unconventional guide to pairing red wines. This gives you a quick way to find the red wines that pair best with beef, fish, pork, or poultry.

Buying Guide

  • Just right for your budget
  • Grapes you love (or try something new)
  • Countries and their claims to fame

Q & A

I’m not Amazon’s Alexa, but I think you deserve real world answers to your questions. If I can’t answer them, maybe someone else from the site can!

Tasting

I’m putting together my own tasting guide of the wines that I like (and some that I don’t). In fact, you might find the videos of what I don’t like more entertaining.

Why Listen To This Redneck?

It’s true, I’m a redneck. Well, maybe not as much as my uncle (the guy that’s willing to bbq in the garage as long as the leaf blower is circulating enough air).

Here’s why you may NOT want to listen to me…

  • I’m not a wine expert (but I know how to use a corkscrew)
  • I’m not educated in the wine business by anything except the “school of hard knocks”
  • I like my dogs more than I like wine, but I think it’s socially unacceptable to eat or drink the dogs.
  • I’m not rolling in cash with the ability to buy whatever I like and throw it out if it gives me a headache.
  • I have a pretty stable life. My wife and I have been married since 1995, we have two amazing daughters that continue to make me laugh, and I’m socially challenged because I’m an engineer during the day
  • I like my dogs more than I like wine, but I think it’s socially unacceptable to eat or drink the dogs.
  • I’m not rolling in cash so I can’t afford to buy lousy wine and I feel bad when I have to pour a bottle down the drain.

If I haven’t scared you away yet, then maybe we’ll get a chance to be friends!

What Makes Me the Red Wine Hound?

Because I’m always in search of a great red wine paired with just about anything! I have a passion to help you find the bottles that make you look like the hero at the party and bring a smile to your face even if it’s a simple table wine you’re look for.

More about hounds…

My wife and I are “dog people”. We don’t breed them. But, they’ve been a part of our lives through and through. The only frustration we have is when Snoopy, our great dane, swipes glasses of red wine off the table with his tail – “bad dog!”
