You are attending a wine tasting and suddenly running out of conversation. All the adjectives about the wine have been explored. Here is a fun comparison between fine wine and fine cashmere that will show you are knowledgeable about both and give you something to share that no one else has talked about.

THE BEST WINE COMES FROM VINES THAT HAVE BEEN STRESSED:  The best wines come from low yield vines that are slightly stressed. Stress is induced by a combination of poor often rocky soil and reduced water. The stressed vines have less foliage and produce smaller grapes that have more concentrated flavor, sugar, color and tannin. These grapes produce better wines.

THE BEST CASHMERE COMES FROM GOATS THAT HAVE BEEN STRESSED:  The finest cashmere goats are of the Capra Hircus variety. They produce long white fiber due to genetics and to their environment. The goats feed on the vast grasslands of Inner Mongolia by pulling the grass out by the root. This habitat takes time to recover and produce more grass. So the combination of the cold environment and lack of food cause the goats to produce superior hair to keep themselves warm.

THE COMMONALITY OF LOW YIELD LEADS TO HIGHER PRICES:  The low yield of stressed vines and cashmere goats contributes to higher prices for both wine and cashmere and hence they are luxury products.

HOW TO BUY FINE WINE AND FINE CASHMERE SWEATERS: Inevitably you will spill your wine on your cashmere sweater, or just run out of wine. You should shop around and compare when you replenish these items. In most cases, you get what you pay for. But try searching for boutique wine labels and independent cashmere companies to find the best wine deals and most unusual cashmere sweaters. I can recommend Diamond Springs Vineyard Bordeaux-styled Cabernet Sauvignon wine and [Link Removed]sweaters.
