An individual who derives excessive pleasure from all aspects of wine, often exhibiting symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Usually found in vineyards and tasting rooms throughout the world while on vacation, the wine bar closest to home, his or her wine cellar, and wine stores, the wineaux will also have large decorative books on wines, terroir, viticulture, and wine-making at home, along with a collection of Wine Spectator magazine. Additionally, wineauxs tend to gather in herds at wine tastings - especially free ones.
