The weather is getting colder as winter arrives, and don't even get me started on turning the clocks back, which makes it feel like you're kissing daylight hours goodbye. A good glass of wine is one of my favorite ways to warm hearts and battle the chill. Tuesdays appear to be your best bet for mixing vintages, scoring some free cheese, and perhaps some digits out of the whole deal. If you're an oenophile, you've probably been to these tastings once or twice. If you just want to date a smartypants who knows what "oaky undertones" are, join in!
