The Baptist Wine Club was born out of rebellion.

Well, sorta.

Our parents are teetotalers (hi Mom!). We didn’t see the inside of a liquor store till we were 25. Our first wine was a White Zinfandel.

Eventually, we learned a little more and tried Merlot. And behold, it was good!

And then, one day, we took a California vacation, including a trip trough The Wine Country. *insert chorus of angels here*

And we’ve never been the same since.

At least, I’ve never been the same since.

But one thing remains – the Baptist in us. (And me. Hi Mom!)

That conservative streak that refuses to pay more than $12 a bottle. Who still looks around to see if anyone we know from church is in the wine aisle at the grocery store. Who occasionally feels a little guilty stocking up on our favorite when it goes on sale. And who still enjoys a little frisson when we remember we’re good, little Baptists who aren’t supposed to drink wine.

But drink wine we do! And we enjoy it, too!

Join us as we continue our journey of wine- (and self-) discovery.

Thanks for being part of the club,

    That’s hysterical, Jennifer! As a former Baptist, now Anglican, I can totally relate to your dilemmas in the store isles! Best wishes and cheers

    I just found this website. I don’t dare to hope, but you sound like a possible Baylor alumna. Either way, I appreciate your style. It’s worth mentioning, I think, that my Baptist parents never drank much before my brother and I reintroduced them to the finer things in life. Sic ’em Bears, or go UMHB, or whatever tickles your fancy. Slaínte, and cheers.

      Un petit rappel de géographie en espérant que vous vous relirez ensuite.Superficie de Gaza : 360 km2Population : 1 710 257 habDensité : 4 751 hab./km2Superficie de la commune (ville seule) de Marseille : 240,62 km2Population de la commune de Marseille : 850 602 habDensité : 3 535 hab./km2Conclusion : Pourquoi les enfants sont proches des méchants &lna&o;&absp;hamqsunbsp;» ? Parce qu’il n’y a pas assez d’espaces pour faire un champ de bataille d’un côté et une zone de refuge civile de l’autre.CQFDMaintenant vous pouvez demander à ce qu’on agrandisse la bande de Gaza.
