It’s that time again--back to school season. While some moms are excited for their kids to go back to school and having some “me-time” during the day, others are already feeling overwhelmed and stressed that comes with crazy back-to-school schedules, especially with the addition of COVID. As a winemaker and mom, I know that a good laugh is helpful when I’m feeling all these feelings. And as such, some of my favorite jokes are wine jokes! So, here are 10 wine jokes that will give you a riesling to be happy amid everything.

  1. Wine improves with age. I improve with wine.
  2. Don’t ask me why I love wine. I have my rieslings.
  3. I can’t wait for the day I can drink wine with my kids instead of because of them.
  4. Adulting or “momming” makes me wine.
  5. It doesn’t matter if the glass is half-empty or half-full. There’s obviously room for more wine.
  6. I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
  7. The first thing on my bucket list is to fill the bucket with wine.
  8. What did the grape say when it was crushed? Nothing, it just let out a little wine.
  9. I’m a wine enthusiast. The more wine I drink, the more enthusiastic I get.
  10. I heard from the grapevine that doctors have invented a new grape variety that acts as an anti-diuretic to help with incontinence. It’s called pinot more.

After a long day and the kids are to bed, wine has an amazing way of sealing a day shut. I’m sure we’ve all had one of those nights when your favorite glass of wine feels like a warm hug. I hope these jokes provide a small pour of comedic relief as you head into a busy season.
