They say that wine is an acquired taste. As such, it’s safe to say that I’ve not acquired said taste, as on the dozen or so occasions when I’ve sipped a bit, I can’t help but imagine that it tastes a bit like how pee would taste like if I were ever to drink pee. It’s tart and vinegary and it’s warm all the way down into my stomach. Generally, I dislike it.

I tell you this because the other day I sipped a trio of white wines as we made preparations for our wedding wine selection. Of the three, the one that tasted the least like pee was the Pinot Grigio. The next day, a forwarded email from a friend regarding Pinot caught my eye. It went something like this…

Word is that they’ve developed a new wine for seniors. In a vineyard known for it’s Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio, apparently they’ve engineered a new hybrid of grape that acts as an anti-diuretic. It is expected that this special property will produce a wine that will reduce the number of trips older people will have to make to the restroom during the night.

They’re planning to call it Pinot More.
