A hot day in San Francisco & I’m running low on white wine! No time to panic or to get something else.
I’m on my way to the Sausalito Ferry which sails from the San Francisco Ferry Building at 5:30.
I’ve got a bottle I picked up at Target out of curiosity, I’ll take that and pack it in a FedEx Padded Envelope with some blue ice! This bottle is Berringer White Zinfandel 2010 . . . Berrigner is a respectable brand by under $5 at Target and Safeway makes me skittish.
I quickly pack this and some cups and off I go.
When I arrive at ferry boat and we’re seated I open the bottle. We pass it around and all remark on the brand . . . I haven’t told them it’s provenance (where I bought it). It’s nicely chilled in the Padded FedEx Envelope (free and fairly good insulation!).
We open and pour. Definitely okay! It’s a little sweet but it does have flavor and goes down easy right after opening! We sit and enjoy the highly unusual warmth as the ferry crosses the San Francisco Bay and the tourists enjoy themselves.
Life is Good!
Bought at Target, also available at Safeway and Ralph’s.
