Vinogirl is a 'cradle Catholic'. In all the masses I ever attended in England, I was never once offered wine at Communion. In the USA every Catholic church has wine by the hogshead! What? Was my little parish too poor to pour? I don't know. Seeing as it is not a tradition I am familiar with, I don't partake. It could have something to do with me being a little germophobic also.
However today, at Easter Sunday service, a co-worker from the winery joined me for the festivities. She does partake. Ever curious, I asked her whether or not the wine was red or white. "Red" she answered...and then with a sly wink she added..."I think it was a Bordeaux". That prompted Vinogirl to rethink her non-participation. After all, I always love a good blind tasting!
