From the ''I wonder what they'll come up with next'' department, here is something to further enhance (or complicate) your wine drinking experience: Wine Sticks.
Wine Sticks are distributed by Pairwell Foods LLC, and are available in three flavors, Pesto, Parmigiano Reggiano and Sea Salt, and are supposed to pair well with certain wines, but apparently not so well with others.
There are pairing recommendation on each box; the Pesto variety, for example, pairs well with a Cabernet Sauvignon, but not with a Merlot. They must have someone with a super-palate on board who can make such detailed recommendations.
''Honey, put the Wine Sticks away; we're having a Malbec tonight.''
The Winedabbler's life just got a bit more complicated.
