I know the Consul can handle drinking wine by the pint, but me … not so much. One summer about five years ago I decided to drink wine instead of beer. My good lady drinks wine, not beer, most of the time, and so I thought I’d join her. Well the results were disastrous – I got very drunk! I’m not really a sipper and so was drinking wine like I drink beer, and found my glass empty most of the time. I also woke up with these pounding headaches. I do like a nice glass of wine and particularly champagne (since it is so close to cider), but I do not drink it on a regular basis.
