Poll: What age did you start drinking wine seriously?
  • 0.9% - As a child. My religion took it very seriously. 63
  • 1% - As a teenager. I always preferred to sneak some wine instead of beer. 69
  • 2.1% - As a college kid. It seemed more sophisticated. 141
  • 3.7% - As a young adult. I was too mature for beer then. 249
  • 82.6% - In my thirties. I grew into it, I guess! 5570
  • 2.7% - Older than thirty. Thanks for lumping all these ages together so I could seem young. 182
  • 7% - I never have taken wine seriously. 472

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I think the fourth option was supposed to be two options. Are Woot's writers phoning in these polls lately? Interns running things? What?

If it was separate it wouldn't make as much sense since you wouldn't be marking the "older than thirty..." category anymore, so there'd be no reason to thank them.

The day I graduated college, I was 22.

When do they start beerwoot! so I can feel more a part of the club??

The wife drinks wine, so I just ask her these poll questions. It's just not as fun for me as beer related questions would be.

Wine is fun, why should I take it seriously?

I can't remember the last time I drank wine seriously. Tasting and being thoughtful, yes, but drinking seriously?

Mine is as a young adult, but I am by no means too mature for beer.

Never. I always drink it frivolously.

I started out on Burgundy but soon hit the harder stuff. Bob Dylan, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

How on earth did I get 7 QPs?

I missed the poll, but for me it's option 1. My parents were not big drinkers, but they were very relaxed in their attitude towards alcohol and let us kids have a taste if we were interested. I had my first taste of Pauillac as a young 'un (yum!), and was introduced to German Rieslings and colheita port at 13.
