Wine has been around since at least 4500 BC, and has played a major role in many civilizations, from the ancient Greeks who poured wine as libation to the gods, to Christianity, where the drink is used to represent the blood of Christ. Of course, wine is an alcoholic drink, so it's off limits to the under-aged and should be consumed in moderation, but as far as alcohol goes it's one your classier options.

Take this 7-question Quick Poll from Cellar360 and let us know what you think about wine -- if you drink it at all, on what occasions, how much you're willing to pay, etc. We'd love to hear from you!

    If I give wine as a gift I know it puts the onus on the host to open a bottle or two.

    What's with all the wine questions lately? Why is this Conservative Circle Jerk of a Website talking about drinking and wine of all things? I thought Tea was your thing.

    Nope. Not any more. Bought my late mother a bottle of red wine, for which the step-bastard said, "Oh. We only drink white wine."

    Most of you probably don't need much imagination to guess what I wanted to do with that bottle.

    I bring wine to a party to share it, but I don't gift it. I don't like gifting things that don't last.

    while I would offer a bottle of wine it's true that sharing a bottle with good friend is a nice experience :)

    Trust me, when I give wine as a gift, it's not going to be served at a party.

    Whenever I'm invited to a dinner party, I usually bring along a nice bottle of wine as a gift for the hostess. Such a gesture is generally welcome, because the wine can be served along with the food. However, this can prove to be rather tricky when dining with people who are only casual acquaintances. I once brought a moderately expensive bottle of an excellent Merlot with me to give to the folks who were having a dinner party, a couple whom I didn't know all that well. It turned out that both of them were recovering alcoholics, so supplying ANY kind of alcohol was rather ill-advised. Oh well, I apologized to them and made the best of it. I took the Merlot home with me, and I polished off the entire bottle all by myself! Hey, when life gives you lemons, and all that rot... [haha]

    What if the person is allergic to wine or alcohol?
  • Tigger Too Terry B... 2012/11/18 23:40:19

    Well, if I brought a bottle of wine as a gift for the host and/or hostess of a dinner party, alcoholics and those who are allergic to wine or alcohol don't HAVE to drink it. I mean, I try not to make a habit of bringing along my .38 Smith & Wesson and putting to the guests' heads and forcing them to imbibe. If someone is present who has a drinking problem or allergies, then they can JUST SAY NO when the wine is being poured. I shouldn't be expected to be clairvoyant or some sort of adult caregiver.
