One year ago I was in the last-minute throes of studying for the unit 3 exam for the diploma. The test included two hours of blind tasting in the morning and three hours of essay questions on the “Light Wines of the World,” the title of unit 3. That’s all the wine in the world that’s not fortified or sparking (I’d already taken those tests).
Needless to say I worked myself into quite a state. A friend was staying at my house and at one time she counted 60 open bottles of wine on my kitchen counter, where I had been standing for hours on end sipping and spitting into the sink. It kinda smelled.
