Wine Tasting Wednesdays Are Awesome! – Something To Do In Casper

Rodeo Rick Drinks Wine – Rock 96.7

I’ve been spending the last few months making different kinds of wine. Not being one who likes to do anything halfway, I’ve been immersing myself into the wino lifestyle. As I build my palate, I am noticing flavors and complexities in different wines that I’ve never experienced before. I can also tell where the grapes came from, how much sulfides are in a given wine, and if they aged it long enough before selling it.

Honestly, wine is starting to replace beer as a go-to drink for me, and it’s kind of scary…

As I try to broaden my horizons, I’ve been hitting different tastings and events. While I was extremely disappointed with the Harmony, Hopps, And Hope event a couple weeks ago – some people just shouldn’t make beer – I was pleased with my first local experience tasting wine.

After asking the guys at the office if they knew where I could go to taste some, Rodeo Rick from My Country 95.5 told me about an event he hits every Wednesday at 2nd Street Liquors. They start the tasting at 4:30, and wrap it up around 6 or so. Yesterday, we tried 6 different wines, including two whites, a Pinot Noir, and others. While I didn’t enjoy every bottle I tried, I did find it interesting talking to the other winos treating their tongues.

The Wednesday night wine tastings are free, in the store, and fun. My buddy left with 6 bottles of vino, while I bought a new flavor I’ve never tried. I’ll definitely be heading back next week…and, hopefully, I’ll see you there!
