Favorite Wines

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting post because I was just in the liquor store on Tuesday buying wine (santa margherita pinot grigio) my standard and I'm totally bored with it. So I picked up a Chenin Blanc. I loved it, so light and crisp. I think I found my new fav wine.

 

But this post is great for suggestions. The wine dept at the store can be very intimidating if you have zero knowledge about wine.

If you are bored w/ S Margherita, try San Angelo Pinot Grigio ($12.49 in our local stores). It's an unbelieveable quality wine for a great price.

I love wine! How is your new wine job going by the way??

 

Anyways my fave wine is White Merlot. I can't find it everywhere though - but it is so awesome (I like the sweet ones though) It's not dry at all - I don't like dry either! AND when FI and I first met he bought me a bottle for my birthday - along w/ a new corkscrew and some wine glasses - so now we call it "our" wine! LOL!

red gives me headaches, so i only drink white in bulk wink.gif

like jaime, i like anything australian or new zealand. my favorite cheap wine is monkey bay sauvignon blanc - i think the chardonnay is icky tho. we rarely buy a bottle that's more than $14.99, so keep those cheap choices coming!

So I was just in the bathroom cleaning off labels of our wine that we bought so we could bottle our new wine we just made tonight. So I wrote down the few we liked.

 

Rojo Granrojo Tempranilo 2005 (I have no idea what that means) it was 10 bucks

 

Recanati Merlot (Not sure on price)

 

Premius Bordeaux Merlot Cabernet 2005 and it was under 10 dollars

 

Trinchero Family Merlot 2005 (Not sure on price)

 

Barefoot Chardonnay was under 10 dollars but we used it to cook some fish and it was YUMMY!

 

and we liked the Korbel Champagne!

I'll look for that! My fave inexpensive Pinot Grigio used to be Ecco Domani but I'm tired of that too...I'll check for the San Angelo, thanks Tami!

And if you have any Barolo recommendations I'll take them :P

I love Riesling. My favorite is by Schmitt Sohne. The bottle is blue and it says Relax down the side... perfect after a long day! Also, Chateau St. Michelle (sp?) makes a good one.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
