Wine O’Clock

One of the mottos of Write for Wine is “It’s wine o’clock somewhere!” In fact, this blog can also be viewed at and

The phrase “it’s wine o’clock” initially came in 2003 from Peter, a London friend of Margot and Dave; they live in Seattle. Every Friday, at 5:30 p.m. in London, Peter would tell Margot that it’s wine o’clock. In Seattle, it was the beginning of the day.

As a result, Margot added “somewhere” to Peter’s phrase and adopted it as her own. You will now see it in her posts on Write for Wine, Facebook and Twitter. And the phrase “It’s wine o’clock somewhere” never fails to inspire creative responses from other wine enthusiasts.

So thank you, Peter and cheers – it’s wine o’clock somewhere!

    Hi Lori,
    Thanks for the nice comment. We loved the 2004 Quarry Butte, and I intend to write about it and the new release soon. We haven’t opened the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon yet. But the taste was great — we love wine from Alexandria Nicole Cellars.
