    Let's have a wine party, Jac!!!

    Tami - that was me that said I like Australian wines. I dont know any names, but they are whites and usually just almost clear in color. I bought a wine journal last Christmas, I should totally start using it!

        Matt's going hunting the weekend after Thanksgiving, so if you want to come up sometime then, cooooo! If not, I hvan't been to your house ever, so... Damn, just looked at the calendar, and this weekend is booked, next is Thanksigving, the next is my birthday, and the next is my birthday celebration with Matt's family! That brings us all the way to Dec 20th! Unless you can hang out on Friday night. Then it would have to be just me, since Matt works late on Friday and early on Saturdays. If it's a Friday, then 11/28 works for me, 12/12. or 12/19.

        Whoops, 12/19 is JOhnny's surprise 30th, can't do that day. Damn I wish that we had more then 2 day weekends. Let me know what works for you!

            I usually just drink Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. The lighter in color they are, the more I like them usually. And Matt also found that I tend to like Australian wine. He pays attention to that crap, I had never noticed!
            Tami is the best! She sent me some wine last year for Xmas and it was superb :)

            Carly - You like exactly what I like!!! Australian/New Zealand Wines are my fav - ESPECIALLY Pinot Grigio & Sauv. Blanc.

            You must try Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc - I looove that. Also, Kim Crawford (Tami introduced me to that! Thanks Tami!) is delish' and goes so well with sweet teriyaki stir fry! YUM! We also like Starborough Marlborough (did I spell that right??). We actually found it way discounted at a tasting yesterday so we bought 2 bottles. If you're going for cheap wine - Barefoot has a decent Pinot Grigio.

            I also like Santa Ema Merlot for a red. Not sure where that's from though...Chile, actually i think... Oh and
            Peter Lehmann's Clancys is an awesome red wine - I know that one is from Australia.

            We are always sampling new Australian/New Zealand wines!

            Tonight our bottle is Starborough Marlborough! Excited about THAT!!
