    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
            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!

              Thanks for the tip. Now I have an excuse to drink a bottle of wine tonight

                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.
