    I like dry reds, and semi-dry whites.


    Don't know where you're located in NJ, but check out Paradox Vineyard in Landnberg, PA. Their table red wine is great, and sold in 1 gallon returnable paint cans.

    For dinners I usually pick a red wine, I love the heavy darkly tasting stuff but I prefer it to be sweet. A chardonnay is very good.
    For enjoyment during weekends and hot summer's evenings I drink Mead... I have one that is called Dragenglut, it's similar to a very sweet red wine and I love the one with apple and cinnamon.
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

    Calories? Aren't that those little creatures that live in my closet and shrink my clothes at night?
    AN EARTH WARRIOR!!!!

    Thanks for the tip.
    I'm in central Jersey.
    People don't really associate Jersey with vinyards, but there's many here. (close to 40, believe it or not).
    These days I limit my wine drinking to holidays and the occasional weekend.
    Too much of anything isn't good, you know?

    So...is this thread being impacted by Mark's "no alcohol" stance??

    not for me, that was one of the original attractions of Mark's plan is there is individual choice. For instance he recommends chocolate as a treat, but chocolate makes me sick in minutes. I wouldn't scrap the whole thing because chocolate makes me sick and Mark recommends it.

    I didn't come close to remembering all the wine from this weekend but I took a few pictures. At our pig roast Sunday there were roughly 20 bottles opened. Last night we had a 2010 Kistler Pinot Noir, 2005 Ridge Monte Bello and 2003 Lafaurie-Peyraguey

    Wolfstrap, I think is the one you're referring to.

    Robertson Winery has a similar blend that is quite good as well. There are quite a few good value South African wines out there these days.

    Alamos Malbac is one of my new go-to's, especially on a warm day with a nice thick steak off the grill.
