    This thread is for all you that LOVE wine.

    Wine is my drink of choice. Actually, I'm a complete wineo!!
    Do you prefer red or white? Anything Specific? Dr. ZenZen Riesling is one of my favorites! It's on the sweeter side, but that's how I like it! For a red I like the Pelee Island Merlot (Ontario vineyard)...

    I love wine! I used to be all about Reds but then the sulfates were giving me really bad headaches just after a couple sips. Now I stick to the whites I love a nice Chardonnay on a nice hot summer's day.

    Have you heard they now have this organic wine which is sulfate free?! I need to try that stuff out and see what it's about.

    I love wine too!

    I have to stay away from the reds... terrible headaches! The only time I'll drink reds is in sangria. i love it so much it's worth it!

    My favorite is Pinot Grigio!

    We've always been trying a few local wineries lately.. and some favorites are the Harvest Moon (white table wine) from Warwick Valley Winery and The Riesling from Brotherhood Winery (its on the menu at the white house!!).

      I heart wine! Worked in San Fran for about 2 years and got totally spoiled with all of the great wine there. My favorites come from the Russian River and Alexander Valley vineyards. Now we live in Phoenix and the FIL are in town this weekend. We are going on a tour of some of the Northern Arizona/Sedona wineries tomorrow. So excited!!!

        Red - Henry of Pelham - Baco Noir
        Whit - Naked Grape - Pinot Grigio

          I love wine! I like Pinot Grigio, White Zinfindel, and Merlot,but have recently become obsessed with a red wine called Genesse (I think that's how it's spelled.) It's sweet and delicious and I always make sure FI has a bottle for me at his place. Oh and I adore Sangria!

            FH and I are red wine lovers.
            Our faves and they're reasonably priced, Secco-Bertani Valopolicella - Italy and Casillero del Diablo Carmenere - Chile.

            Oh and to finish the evening... a delicious aged Tawny Porto :) yum
            We'll be bringing a bottle with us to enjoy on our honeymoon.

              Mmm, wine. I live right by Brotherhood Winery. Their reisling is yummy, but my favorite is Columbia Reisling from Washington.

                I love La Crema chardonnay. It is so good with cheese and crackers. I can't drink red wine because it makes me soooo sleepy!

                  I love wine !!! Riesling is my absolute favorite, but I'm not opposed to any kind of white sweet wine. The only time i drink red is in sangria or this cherry desert wine that is absolutely divine with cheese cake.

                  I'm so excited next weekend I'm going to be in Seattle for my sister's 21st and we're doing a wine tasting. If any of you ladies are from Seattle or know of somewhere good in the Seattle area for wine let me know.
