      Oh yeah, there are some great prices at Costco. They buy in such bulk that they get just phenomenal prices on their wine.

      I had to go pick some up at Costco for a customer last week and they are selling it to consumers basically at cost.

        That's the joy about wine, Andrea! You don't have to be an 'expert' to know what you like. You can gain a better appreciation for wine by continuously learning and trying new wines, but ultimately - if you like it, then it's good. :-)

          My fav's are mostly local WA wines, but I do like Austrailian wines & Italian reds as well: A few I love:
          Kim Crawford Sav Blanc
          Giesen: Sav Blanc
          Bogle: Pinot Noir
          Artizin: Zinfandel
          14 hands: Cab Sav
          Barnard Griffin: red blend, can't remeber?
          From Italy, a good Chianti Classico or sparkling Prosecco is amazing
          Any Cameraderie red wine from WA if you can find it.

            K, I actually switched to the Barefoot Pinot. I was eating granola and the Sauv. just didn't taste right!

            Who else is with me? Tami...? ;-D

              there was this wine i got in fl only b/c i liked the bottle, it was a white wine, clear bottle, had clouds on it, called "heavenly" or something, it said heavenly right on the bottle.... i loved it and saved the bottle however i left it at joe's uncles :o( hahhahaha my first tattoo was a small symbol that meant "heaven" so it reminded me of that. that tat is now covered up with new one but whatever. im babbling. AND after all this talk, i never went to wine store, i had to run to target and get some chips and whatnot for mts, so joe will grab me wine. i gotta call him pronto and tell him what to get

                I bet it was 7 Heavenly Chards (the sister of 7 Deadly Zins). Sounds just like that bottle! ;-)

                    so i went and purchased 3 bottles of wine that were suggested by the tamster and i have to say im impressed ;o)
                    i bought the pino nior cona sur, le crema and toasted head bottle reserve- which is actually the one i opened!
                    i only finished the one bottle on fri night b/c sat was the beer fest so i had beer that day and night.
                    tonight i will open another and see how i like it.

                    also, jaime we will have to plan another on line wine party soon, and we will do it for reals! lol
