You Know You’re a Wine Snob When…

… you unscrew the bottle cap from a Bud Light. And you sniff it. Jerry Pierson
…you bring your own stemware to a restaurant.
…you refuse to drink out of the box and insist on putting the wine in a glass.
Carol Prucha Evans <— oh SNAP, Should I admit that Carol is my mom?!
….you use a points rating system for the drinking water: 98 points, 2010 vintage ala tap water, some mineral taste on the palate, little to no nose and not dry at all, very quaffable and inexpensive…. Gary Krimont
…you carry a corkscrew in your pants pocket! @WLarryC
… you take some of your wine bottles to a friend’s apartment for recycling so the garbage guys won’t think you have a problem. 😉 Naomi Whitmore Pollack
…you bring your own aerator to a restaurant @HipsForHire
…when its Riedel or nothing else! @abryksa
…when you won’t drink a bottle of wine less than $20. @DaveBenjamin
…When your friends refer to you as “The Cork Dork”Jeff Morrow
…you must precurse a statement by saying, “I’m not a wine snob, but…”Jason D. Brumley
…you start making cute things for the house out of all the corks you’ve collected. Steven Petersen
…when you scoff at the fact that a resturant only offers “house red” or “house white.”
… It takes you longer to take the first sip than it did to pour it in the glass. Ariana Emery Burgess
… you fly 1500 miles to drink your favorite wine instead of drinking it at home!!!! Scott Miller
…every time you purchase a bottle of wine, you then check Wine Spectator online for the rating.Emily Campen-Mrachek
… you post a question on FB and twitter asking what makes other people a wine snob 🙂 Tom Black <– Oh JAB!

    Good post! I do carry a corkscrew, haha! But….you are definitely a wine snob when you bring your own wine to a restaurant, even when you know they have a great wine list!

    My daughter totally rates water with points. I do not carry a corkscrew in my pocket, but I do have one that lives officially in my overnight luggage, because you always have to have a corkscrew?
