In Vino Veritas
I am a man of simple pleasures....
Enjoying life in merry measures
And when it comes time
For me to sit down and dine
I select one of my many treasures
Tis true, I'm a wine connoisseur
My cellar's kept well stocked, for sure
The only dilemma in sight
Is which wine, on a given night
Very much like taking a world tour
 I always have a great variety on hand
From Gekkeikan to Dom Perignon Grand
And the joy that these bring
Always makes my heart sing
I'm forever looking for new wines to land
With dinner, there's Bardolino and Valpolicella
In Italian, I praise....du se bella!
They're dry reds, with a very nice finish
With rich food, their taste don't diminish
Welcome members of my humble rathskeller
 Sometimes, I choose a good old Chianti
The pride of any old school pezzonavante
It's robust flavour is always ready
For osso bucco or spaghetti
An all purpose red, so elegante
 White wines are something quite unique
Like night and day, to red wines, I did speak
A fine Soave or a fruity Chablis
Is more than acceptable to me
When dining on seafood, prepared in Greek
 Now champagne is in a class by itself
There's many cases I keep on the shelf
For with the bubbly, you see
There's always a party, to be
When I drink it, I have lots of help
 There's the varietal wines, a great pleasure
To be drunk anytime, at my leisure
Napa Valley produces the best
So, I put them all to the test
A Cabernet or Sangria I enjoy, at full measure
 Desert or Ice wines, are most intriguing
When a sweet after dinner wine, I am seeking
A Vidal Blanc or Zinfandel Port
Is magnificent....just the right sort
To relax with and sip, slowly speaking
 At bedtime, I partake in Napoleon Brandy
My crystal snifter I always have handy
A case or two, I always keep
To give me a good night's sleep
Courvoissier or Hennesey, are just dandy
 I could go on and on, in my joy and praise
Of all wines and the good feelings they raise
So I say in reverance, without any sass
In wine there's truth, in vino veritas
I raise my glass once again....happy days!
Author's Notes:
Written in limmerick style and meter, I wanted to capture the true spirit of it's it's glory and splendor. Cheers!

I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, but this charming write makes me wish I were.

I enjoy a glass of white wine or champagne from time to time, and thanks to you I wish I had some now.   :-)
