Favorite Wines

Recommended Posts

Martin and have really been getting into wine the past year or so.

 

Here are our favs right now:

 

White

* Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc (2007, New Zealand, $10-15) This is my absolute favorite white! It is light, refreshing and I love the peach in it - it is really easy to drink so be careful wink.gif

* Barefoot Pinot Grigio (California, $5-9, great inexpensive white - we serve this at our art gallery and always get compliments. I was strictly a red wine girl before this!)

* Clos du Bois Pinot Grigio (California, $10-15)

 

Red

* Peter Lehmann's Clancy - 43% Shiraz, 42%Cab, 15% Merlot (2004, Australia, $16-22) This is our FAV red!

* Clos du Bois Merlot (2004, California, $10-15)

* Ravenswood Shiraz (California, $8-12, we also like the Cab & Merlot)

 

As you can tell we love Australian & New Zealand wines, with Californians following close behind.

 

I'd love to see your favs and add to our collection! :)

 

Oh, and if you have any good champagnes you'd like to add I'd love to see those as well. We're spoiled and like Moet on occasion wink.gif

Try Sauvignon Republic ... they are amazing Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand.

 

From Australia, Kim Crawford's line is fabulous, as is the D'Arenburg brand.

 

I could go on and on. lol.

Schramsburg is a good, affordable sparkling.

 

Bollinger is even better.

 

California wines: Matanzas Creek, Murphy Goode, Cardinale, Alexander Valley Vineyards, KJ Taylor Peak, ... let me know more about what you like from CA already and I can recommend some others.

I love my husband's wine! We make wine! We also buy it and try something different each time. I'll have to go check the bottles and tell you what ones. We actually have some grapefruit wine thats being made right now. Though peeling all those grapefruit was a PITA!!!!!

Thanks Tami :)

 

I know we love just about every wine we taste that's from Australia and New Zealand. CA wines are hit and miss for us. I will have to try out the Kim Crawford and Sauvignon Republic! :)

Our friend's brother works for Whitehall Lane (CA) and we love the chard and merlot...not sure of the retail price since we get it at cost...

 

I'm a champagne freak....love Veuve Clicquot, Perrier Jouet, Moet, Piper Heidsieck...the list goes on and on! :)

I get the Piper in a split quite often when we're out and I want some bubbles!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
