Wine Country

Never been to Tuscany
But when it comes to wine,
Napa and Sonoma
As a substitute are fine.

Even on a rainy day,
The rows of endless vines,
Combined with endless hills
Create magnificent designs.

At every winery, you sip
And sample, sniff and taste.
What you don't like, you simply toss - 
A necessary waste.

I wonder what they do with all
Those rejects in that bucket.
Of course, they say - end of the day
They take that wine and chuck it.

But maybe when the tourists leave,
They bottle what was tossed
And sell it as a "special blend"
At some expensive cost.

So think of that when next you sip
And when those thoughts appear,
Just follow my example - say,
"I think I'll have a beer!"
