        I never was crazy about wine, but my friend was sort of tricked into buying a case of $50/bottle wine. It is delicious. And nutritious.

        He lives in arguably the wine capital of the nation, so this winery was about a mile away. The name is Winsome.

        When I was in Florida last week, the bar's displayed wine came from about 5 miles from my friend's house.

        Actually, it's only 16 bucks here. That's a steal IMO.

          Nice!

          I've been drinking Pinot Noir for a while (I had one from New Zealand a while back that was really good). But I think I'm on the cusp of switching to cabs. I am partial to wine from Oregon newzealand/Australia.

            For dry-ish reds, I like a Merlot or Old Vine Zinfandel.

            For semi-sweets and sweets I enjoy Late harvest Rieslings, White Merlot, Ice Wine, Plum Wine, Sangria.

            I'm not a fan of dry whites so have no suggestions there.

              I'm EXTREMELY biased when it comes to wine, having grown up in the Finger Lakes of NY. Especially anything that comes from Seneca Lake.

                For red I mostly drink shiraz (NSW or SA) with the occasional cabernet or cabernet blend. Pinot noir occasionally in Summer (NZ & Tasmania producing the best available here)

                I drink much less white but still prefer an aged Hunter Valley semillon. Nothing else has the rich flavour and smooth palate. OTOH it is hard to go past NZ sauvignon blanc for an every day white

                  Since I live in Santa Barbara wine country, pinot noir is the thing you're supposed to get here. But I actually prefer a nice rich heavy-duty Cabernet sauvignon. Sometimes the pinot noir has a lot of complexity and then I like it, but if it doesn't, I think it's kinda watery.

                    Unfortunately red wines seem to aggravate my allergies otherwise I'd prefer Pinot Noir, for whites I like Sauvignon Blanc.

My favourite white is Muller Thurgau I made 30 bottles about a year ago, and they are all gone so I have another batch on the go. Everyone who has tried it has loved it!! I just finished a batch of Italian Amarone about three months ago which has an extra fermentation step resulting in a high alcohol, and it is great!!!
                      Maybe this needs a new thread, but more details please! Do u use fresh grapes for example?

                          I use kits from a company called winexpert they are a Canadian company, only use high quality grapes from around the world, no dies, added sugars, or other junk. It is pretty easy to make, and costs $2-$5 a bottle

                                Prefer Pinot Noir and Washington state/Oregon are great. Right now am enjoying a blend-Merlot, Barbera, Sangiovese.

                                Emeri De Bortoli sparkling sauvignon blanc is a really nice sort of lighter-Prosecco from Australia.
