I have made a few memes about my wine fridge and thought it could be fun to do a blog post about what is in my fridge right now.
Here is the wine fridge meme I made a couple years ago:
So let’s dive into these categories!
1. Chonker Bottles - Wide bottles that only fit in top or bottom rack of my fridge
Ampeleia "Unlitro" IGT Costa Toscana Rosso Ampeleia 1L
2. Wine that you got as a gift that you don’t like
14 Hands rosé 2017 (omg, I forgot this was in there)
3. Value wine for your friends & family that don’t care about wine
I always like to keep some tasty value wines on hand.
4. Geeky Wine
I love trying wine from regions that I have not tasted a lot from.
Clai Baracija Rofošk Western Istria, Croatia
5. The Good Shit
Example: Maryam + Co #2 + Massican Muscat Blanc 80%, Cortese 20%.
Next to it are more examples
Iruai Savagnin Arcana
Pithon-Paille Anjou Mozaik Chenin Blanc
6. The really good shit that you know will taste better if you age it but you are impatient and probably wont…
7. Long Bois
8. Sweet Bois
9. More Chonker Bottles
The bottom of my fridge has long bois (long bottle), sweet bois (sweet style wine in 375ml), & chonker bottles (magnum 1.5L & wide bottle)
Example: Weingut Martin Muthenthaler Ried Bruck Riesling
Example: Kracher Cuvee Beerenauslese 2011 (375ML half-bottle)
Chonker (Large Format)
Example: Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant 2010 (1.5L Magnum)
Chonker (Wide Bottle)
Example: Villa Sparina Gavi
One thing I learned is that it is always good to keep some bubbles ready or you will end up at the wine shop again fast!
