Sherry is too sweet for me, I like Port much more.

Sherry is made in England and was created because the Portuguese Government made "Port" a copyrighted product and unless the product is made in Portugal it is not real Port.

In retaliation, the English govt. provided monetary incentives to anyone that could approximate Port, but the closest they could come was Sherry. It didn't matter though because the English palate seemed more attuned to the sugary sweetness of Sherry and so it became a success - (sorry about the next, no offense intended) - among older English ladies and young girls because of it's sweetness.

A wine is ''good'' if it is one that you enjoy.

If you don't drink sherry, why did you insult the poster?

How can one drink a rose? I thought a rose was a flower? Are you an idiot?

What is a vening? Are you just learning English?
