      My absolute favorite is Pinot Grigio....doesn't matter if it's a $3 bottle or a $50 bottle, I love it! But I also love a nice glass of red, Pinot Noir! Just recently, I've discovered sparkling wine and I have turned into a big fan. It depends on my mood, but you really can't go wrong with any glass of wine!

        I love red but it gives me a wicked migraine. So I'll drink any white wine, not too picky! I like Peller Estates Private Reserve wines as well as Gray Monk.

          All you white wine lovers should try Rombauer Chardonnay, it is incredible. Unfortunately it's not that easy to find out here in AZ or most places back east. But it is like my instant stress reliever.

            This thread is making me thirsty! I'm a lover of the whites when it turns summertime, but lately, I've been trying Rose's and I've gotta say, yum! Granted, I think most people equate pink wine with box o' wine or older ladies playing bridge, but I'm loving it's light and flavorful taste!

              I've never been a fan of Rose for that reason, because I've only ever had cheap ones. But my uncle started a vineyard a few years ago and they just got around to making Rose and it is delicious! He just came out with sparkling rose, I can't wait to try it, we're thinking about serving that as our one wine for our wedding.

              Check out Croteau Vineyards if you wanna try it, they're made in Long Island, NY

                  Oh Rombauer is all over the place around here. I haven't tried it ... but the brand has a good reputation as far as reasonably priced wines go.

                  I used to think of pink wines as just basically white zinfandel untilI started selling wines. Rose wines are usually drier in style - not sweet like white zin's. One fabulous rose is Montes Cherub. It has a pic of cupid w/ a bow and arrow on the front and is an upscale quality out of Chile for a fraction of the upscale price.

                  I don't know how readily available it is ... but one of the top sellers at a few of the wine bars that I sell to here is Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato. It's from Australia and is a pink bubbly moscato that is just absolutely amazing. All my friends love it too and I buy it by the case to keep at home. Even DH loves it and he's not a wine drinker. Slightly sweet but not syrupy sweet ... and fabulously crisp. I promise if you find it, you will love it!

                    Thanks for the tip on Rose - I will check out Montes Cherub.

                    I think we're doing a Prosecco for our "champagne" toast as I wasn't wild about any of the sparkling wines my hotel offered - and the real champagnes were just ridiculously expensive for 75 people who probably aren't that interested. I'm having trouble finding any info/ratings on the one they offer though: NV Prosecco, Il Follo Villa Luigia Brut Valdobbiadene.

                      Here is a review of it ... Artisan Vineyards - Il Follo Prosecco

                      Just google "il follo" and you will find a few more reviews on the Prosecco. Sometimes when searching for info on a wine, putting in too much info won't get you enough results or accurate results. :-)

                      It sounds yummy!
