Do you ever blend wines for yourself?

catspercapita | Mar 8, 2011 06:00 PM

I'm asking this question very very sheepishly, but does anyone ever blend their own wines?I've never done it, and I'm sure the thought might offend (disgust?) most wine aficionados, but is there ever a (dignified) way of putting two (or more) wines together? After all, there are drinks like : wine coolers, wine spritzers. sangria, kir royal, may wine, velvet hammer, punch and such that mix alcohol and wine or juice or flavorings and wine. Now , I'm not suggesting a frat house type scenario of throwing anything (and everything) into a bowl and drinking it. I'm talking about a well thought out, almost scientific matching of wines for a desired result. Any takers?
