    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
    * 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

      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 actually love the Whole Foods brand 365 and it's extremely affordable - under 6.00 per bottle.

          I also like Charles Shaw - Shiraz and Merlot.

            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! :)

                  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!
