There were A LOT of bottles in there, maybe thousands. Anyway, the caption read something like..." I intend on drinking every one of these bottles of wine."
So my questions are:
1. How many bottles do you have?
2. If you have a lot of bottles when can you possibly drink them all if you continue to buy and cellar more wine?

It will be 26 years of wedded bliss for us this December as well. How nice that so many of you have enjoyed long marriages. You won't find those kind of stats on just any forum; we are members of a very exclusive "club" anymore! Hmm...perhaps those couples that enjoy wine together, stay together? :cool:

I'm thinking that the idea of the label machine may be the best thing I ever got from this forum. Unfortunately, hubby is starting to figure out that I'm unlikely to drink much pinot/Burgundy that's less than $20.

We're into the mad scientist thing, where there are always a half-dozen bottles open, all in various stages of oxidation. That's how I figured out that Olivier LeFlaive's 2002 Cuvee Margot needed three hours uncorked--not two, and not four.
