Taste The Grape (Song #22 of 52)

Most entertainers have their niches and for the past few years one of my favorites has been providing comedy and music at wine tasting events. Along with entertaining, at several of the events I was asked to act as the wine connoisseur and lead the tasting. I stress the word “act.”  I probably deserve an Oscar.  But, what I lack in knowledge I make up for in enthusiasm.

It seems at almost every wine tasting there is someone who is dragged there by a friend or spouse. They’re uncomfortable and skeptical about all the wine terminology. I guess at times, there’s a little skeptic in all of us when we can’t taste what the wine guru is tasting. I remember one frustrated guy complaining, “I can’t even taste the grape.” I figure there was a song there.
