I adore Red Wine but i can honestly say that I have no favourite. I forever change the types I buy as I hate sticking with one grape or producer. My favourite wine producing country at the moment however is tied. it is between Sicily and Chile. They are both making extraordinary reds currently.

Anyone else appreciate good wine?


Yes, I do.

What are your two favorite wines or the two BEST bottles you have ever had?


It's really hard to say. I have a friend who has a winery Rhineland Paltinate, and he gave the most excellent bottle of Beerenauslese (selected past-prime harvest). It was a 2003 bottle, and it was a Riesling, and was divine - tasted like brandied raisins.

Another one I won't forget is the Sommerachter Katzenkopf dry late harvest - Scheurebe grapes - from Franconia, which is just "over the hill". It won a gold prize for 2012 for best Franconian aromatic white wine.

Well in honor of all the gorgeous Australian women I went "Aussie" the other night. A huge tasty Aussie Rib Eye roast, rare, paired with a 98' and 02' "Dead Arm" Shiraz. Hard to say which bottle was better. The nose is so lush and rich with lots of black currant and eucalyptus. Both amazing wines and I have to respect D'Arenberg for not raising the price even though they keep getting outstanding ratings from Parker. Hard to find a better wine for US$50 if you ask me.

I appreciate wine and it appreciates me. We have a mutual agreement.

I don't. I have yet to find a bottle of wine that I'd rather drink than a coca-cola, or similar beverage. Maybe I just don't appreciate the flavors, but I've tried dozens, and have yet to find one I can enjoy.

I don't know shit about wine but every time I drink it with a lady friend I always seem to have an enjoyable night and I sure do appreciate it! Give me Grey Goose, though I am rather fond of Cristal.

Merlot, but hardly ever. Then again, I'm a vodka girl.

I am not going to go out and say that I really know a ton of wine, but I do know that I like my wine white and dry.

Yes I do appreciate quality wines and enjoy reds mostly. I recently had Chianti Classico which was really wonderful :)



I like the way you make me feel even when I'm nowhere near...

I do, either a good, cold glass of a buttery Chardonnay for sipping, or a hearty red (A Cab if I'm feeling lucky I won't get a headache from the tannin, otherwise a Merlot or Shiraz, maybe a Pinot Noir) with a good medium-rare steak. Nothing sets off a good steak like a fine red wine - and vice-versa.

I had the good fortune to tour the Sonoma wine country for a few days some years ago with my brother, who was the GM of a large Caribbean resort at the time, and influential in maintaining one of the largest and best-known wine cellars in the region. The wineries really went all out to impress, with private tours and tastings of some of their top wines, usually alongside the winery owner. We also came away with more gifted bottles than we could carry home on planes. I was merely a tag-along, but it was fascinating, educational, and very enjoyable, including the chance for the two of us to get to know each other again as semi-responsible adults.

Great memory to enjoy again, thanks for the question. 3601

Red, occasionally. Champagne on NYE. Other than that, it is water and the table wine of the south, Sweet Iced Tea.

I appreciate it enough so that drinking really cheap wine is unpleasant. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

But I don't appreciate it enough to warrant spending 300 dollars a bottle in lieu of a 50 dollar bottle.

If I drink something expensive it's usually with a meal. After 2-3 glasses I'll switch to something cheaper.

As with most things, the more you learn about it, the more you'll enjoy it.

I live in a wine region, so I find it enjoyable to go wine tasting and sit on a patio overlooking the lake.

I like drinking wine but I know nothing about it.

If I'm ever asked which wine I want I always say I will take whatever my friend's husband says... he's the one who knows. Maybe after some time I'll learn from him.

Red wine, for the most part. White is okay, but there are fewer grapes and methods of treating them that I enjoy. If you make white wine out of a grape traditionally used for red wine (like a cabernet or pinot noir), I usually enjoy it more than a run of the mill white. The drier the better, and no oak. Basically that means a virgin chardonnay where I'm at, but an oaked (standard) chardonnay is fucking vile.

Huh... I have more opinions about this than I thought.
