A definite hard sell is the opaque black bottle emblazoned Random Bump. You know you're getting something, and sometimes something really strong, but you haven't a clue if it's red or white, and whatever it was, it never really improved with age.

Although not as common as it used to be, I can still be tempted into a glass of When Do We Port. It's best enjoyed right after When Do We Get Paid.

I wouldn't call myself a whine snob, but When Do We Port and When Do We Get Paid are not only cheap but also apallingly common. Someone is offering it at nearly every party, and it seems to me the host is the only one who enjoys it.

But as long as we're talking sparkling whine, give me a I'm an OM and I'll Ban You instead.

The simplicity of listening to /jcrew for payment info is what makes the I didn't get paid a noteworthy blockade whine.
Served best with the Quartermaster program performing payments, but also compliments the payment ship method.

Lemme Be an Alpha tester a very young vintage, sadly no longer has the growing conditions for it to be properly produced. I blame global warming and open betas. Its questionable flavor and weak strength were made up for by its trendy labeling.

One of the most prolific whineries, Looterati Conspiracy, has produced numerous vintages. One of the more memorable whines that they have produced is This Familiar Contest Is Rigged. It is a dry, full-bodied red that seems mild in the beginning, but hits you with a strong blast of tart fruitiness in the middle and then actually peters out in the end to leave no lingering aftertaste. It is best served during creative forum contests.

Let's not forget the always-fitting What's The Fastest Way To Make Poe? whine, and it's bottom-shelf cousin, It's Too Hard To Make Poez In This Game. The first goes with nearly anything, but in true screwtop style, the second has an unpleasant aftertaste, despite the nearly identical bouquet.

I forgot about this old chest in the attic. The label is hard to read, but I think I have one small bottle of Cnossos Island Sucks. A small taste reveals a barren bouquet, with a rocky finish.

My personal favourite is the dubs r 2 much whine, taken in small quantities, it is simply exquisite.
Although, admittedly this wine is produced by the ringers and it you don't buy it their kids will go hungry.

In almost any store nowadays you can pick up a bottle of any variety of the But we are not dock-pressing label. There is the original Stand on the dock and random job/crew invite, But we are not dock-pressing whine, the newer Go pillaging and after EVERY battle send crew invites to ALL jobbers, But we are not dock-pressing whine, and the ever growing We have 300 Cabin People in our crew (out of 400 crew members) but we are not dock-pressing whine. Each bottle contains whatever could be scraped from the bottom of the barrel, so every one is extremely tarty with a vile after-taste. Popular with Greenie Captains and pirates suffering from Big Crew Envy.

As rare as they are these days, it's difficult to forget a good sip of My brother is a lawyer and he'll sue you unless you unban me.

Now there's a classic vintage. If you have any left, I'll trade you for my last unopened bottle of NO GODMODDING !JEEZ I HATE THIS.

I have gotten used to this whine. But the flavour does impress me, everytime.
Yes, "how do u larf" and "happy robert rofl" are quite good.

Also - "can i borrour grand fig plz1" is better (for me) in small amounts.

I can't believe nobody's mentioned one of my favorite tarty reds: Greeter Society whine. Greeterati Vinyards puts out a good vintage anually, often with lighter tones, nearing pink. This year's batch was so tart it knocked someone's beard right off the forums.

If ye are looking for a decent sort of Vin Ordinaire, the I blame .... whines are hard to beat. They come in a wide variety of styles and flavours and ye can be sure to find one on the shelf to suit any occasion. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish the red whines from the whites and rose tinted ones are almost never made.

This seems to be an especially good season for I miss chatting with Cleaver and Nemo and Petitioning sucks, I want to be able to talk to OMs again. The first is a rather bitter whine enjoyed by only the most experienced whine enthusiasts. However, it's simple to make, and I've actually been known to press a version of it myself (though, I have generally only shared it with my crew) in the past few months. The latter has a bit more ambitious flavor, and will go straight to your head if you take in too much at once.

If that's an acceptable vintage, then I propose to add Everything's about me, which is a rather bitter blend of vanity and arrogance.

I'm not really sure about that, Rome, but I do see that Midnight Whinyards has produced a wonderful new blend of Blockades Are Griefing whine for 2006. I hear it's unique to that particular whinyard.

Well Llama, you generally end up drinking that whine when your buddy drank up all the I blame someone, often by name, for things that are actually due to my personal shortcomings. Next time leave a little for me! I hear it's great with scapegoaty cheese.

I've always enjoyed a glass or two of Lucker after a rousing swordfight or rumble against a Renowned with one tenth of my experience. It's a whine with a bit of a sour kick to it, but it has a sweet, ego-boosting aftertaste.

Ahh, Rome, so sweet of you to bring your own vintage of Messiah Complex to fix all the bitter whines being thrown around today.

Perhaps I can offer you, instead, a nice white Let it go. It's fresh, it's refined, it's brings out everything you've come to expect from a game.

Ah, cheese! I do love me some cheese. 4 instas in a 0-damage brig swordfight, I really like that one. It has a strange smell, kind of like Gunning with severe lag, but slightly less pugnant and the flavour really carries a long way.

As for my favourite whine, there can be no doubt that the finest whine I have ever taste is Mind-reading imps. Not too bitter, not too sweet, a perfect blend of flavours, and a beautiful colour (yes, I consider the colour to be very important for a red whine). It illuminates any party. Also, if I have fish, I like my white whine to be Bnav rankings are booched (a rich, dry variation on the mundane ratings are booched). Finally, the simple and cheap but oh-so wonderful: Misflip. Probably best value-for-money, that one.

May I offer I'm por, plez gif me poez in the cheese department. This, when new, is a fromage of poor taste but when slightly more mature tends to be decidedly sour. It comes wrapped in ragged cloth to prevent mold and will often be piled 3 deep. The connoiseur of truly fine cheese will treat this offering with the amusement and contempt it deserves.
