@contentandwell, What you wrote is so true! While my s-i-l swears they didn't buy their new home because of the actual temp controlled wine cellar and I'm well satisfied with the Beringer White Zinfandel they keep on hand just for my visits, I know the feeling of "missing out" by gifting your 76 wines to others when you had to abstain.

It was somewhat the same for me when I discovered that I was highly allergic to wood smoke. It didn't take long to share my still-waiting-in-the wings cord of firewood after posting on my neighbor page that I had some free for the taking. I still yearn for the smell of the wood fires and yearn for the smells of pinon pine particularly.

From that experience I learned to not delay when finding a special plant because tomorrow it might not be available. Now I don't wait or save things for special occasions. Heck! At my age, I might not be around later so why not enjoy those wonderful finds right now???

@fiesty76 I have definitely learned to not put off the enjoyment of special things. I try to remind myself of that frequently. I had a sister-in-law who used her beautiful Waterford glasses daily for that reason – what's the point of having them if you can't enjoy them.

@imallears Perhaps it's just the taste of Pinot Grigio/Gris, it just does not do it for me and I have had some that are on the higher end of the price range. When my son was first dating his wife that was her favorite and I did buy her a few very good ones.
I agree, many pinot noirs are not good at all but when we were at a winery in CA, I think it was in Carneros, they had a small production Pinot Noir that we ended up scribing to for a case each year and it was very good. It was only available that way.

If you enjoy a sweet dessert wine, in my opinion, Takaji is the best, followed by one made by J winery that is only available at the tasting room in Sonoma.

This is making me miss wine a lot since I enjoyed the whole process and learning about wines almost as much as drinking it.
