O for ABC Wednesday

Oenopoetic: of, like or pertaining to wine-making (The 'poetic' ending is interesting to me.)


I don't know much about wine except that it looks like summer in a glass. Two sips make my nose numb and stop my brain.

A daughter and her hubby make wine and watching the process creates a craving for a taste of their newest blend.

Maybe with the next batch, I'll learn a little oinomancy or divination using wine.

Are you an oenophile?

Summer in a glass. That's beautiful.
Wine does the same thing to me too.
Love your picture of the huckleberries. Very artsy.

Great words, but I'm not a wine drinker - more beerpoetic ;-)

I had to look up oenophile, though I would have guessed correctly I wasn't absolutely sure. The answer: I enjoy wine, but I am not a connoisseur. :)

I like the white wines, especially somewhat dry, but I would not call myself an oenophile.

A word I've never heard, maybe I've never even seen it! Good choice for O.

Neat shot. It makes me thing this is what ambrosia looked like on Olympus...

sandy said...

Nope, but I do love the way it looks in a glass.

Friko said...

I most certainly am, I love a glass or two with my dinner and will have a glass for whatever reason and none. No spirits though and beer only occasionally.

Kate said...

I do not make the wine but I sure do enjoy drinking the wine, nectar of the gods.

Rajesh said...

Very interesting word.

An unusual choice and very clever, - love your description - summer in a glass. Some wines are like that, and then there are the rich ones that warm us in winter.

Oh so beautiful!

A Splash of Orange made my ABC this week, come and see. Thank you!

Paula Scott said...

Most certainly, I am a certified oenophile!

Reader Wil said...

I drink a glass of wine every evening before supper. I never heard of this word. You teach us the new words . I hope I can remember this one. My Dutch daughter and her friend like beer. I don't.
Have a nice week!

Rinkly Rimes said...

I'm the opposite! Wine does nothing for me. I always end up asleep or with a headache. So I suppose I a oenophobe.

Carver said...

Great words for O and what fun to watch wine being made.

kat said...

oh I only drink red wine after meal but not too often.

The summer glass is cute.

Happy ABC Wed. Mine is @ Mom's Place

I am getting addicted with this blogging hobby, I get to see beautiful places and learn interesting things. Very nice O you have here..

Mind lOOking at my O entry?, have a nice day!

Joy said...

Yes I can get very poetic after a few glasses. I love fruit berries just as much as wine, so I would be spoilt for choice which glass to go for.

Beverley Baird said...

What a lovely way to describe it - summer in a glass! One glass of red wine at dinner is enough for me. Great new word!

Reflections said...

Beautiful images... summer in a glass sounds wonderful. Not really a wine person either... but the idea of the richness of flavors does make it seem intriguing.

Thanks for your feedback over at my place.

I love the phrase "summer in a glass." I do enjoy wine and am lucky to have a husband who knows how to find good stuff that's reasonably priced. I also love poking fun at people who fancy themselves wine experts, but who aren't. I had a good time with this very topic in Vintage Wisdom.
