I had good intentions when I started this blog. I was living in my home town, Calabar, at the time and wanted to write about Efik culture, food, natural skincare and just about any exciting event. A few months into it, I left for a post-graduate degree like a “good” Nigerian kid.
I don’t enjoy drinking. I was that party pooper who prefers water or orange juice at a party where everyone else is getting slammed. On the rare occasion where I wanted to fit in with the “cool” kids, I’d settle for a glass of wine.
I knew nothing about wine varieties and their taste profiles. I just ordered a “nice” glass of wine. But now that my wine vocabulary has improved, I can do better than simply ask for a “nice” red or white wine. I can tell you that I like a light, off-dry Semillon or a Riesling. On the top of my list is a fruity Moscato.
