Wine Drinkers Out There?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Do any of you fabulous kitty parents enjoy a fine glass of wine while visiting TCS? I find more and more that I enjoy a nice glass of wine whilst perusing my favorite forums (or just unwinding from a crazy cat meowmy day like today!)

If you do, how about sharing some of the favorite kinds?

My standby, which I recommend: Clos du Val, Cabernet, Napa Valley. Its a reasonably afforable bottle between $20-$26

I also enjoy Ruffino, Chianti, Italy - as seen on The Sopranos. It costs between $12-$17 around here.

oh yes, I drink Spanish Rioja of course - a glass a day is good for the heart they say
Its great value here can get a decent bottle from about 5 euros which is $6.5 up to a very good one for 12 euros which is nearly $16

A glass a day indeed! Cheers!!

I love this spanish wine called, "Clio" ever heard of it?
Its about $40 US dollars here but not sure if it would be cheaper your way.

I usually don't drink at home, only if I go out, but I love Riesling, and had a delightful one on Friday from Chateau Ste Michelle I don't like red wines, at least I haven't found one so far that I've liked

Yep, I'm a wine drinker here.

There are plenty of vineyards in northern Michigan. I have only been to 1 but its nice to have a decent quality wine for about $10 less then one from another country.

Although I am partial to Beajouis. Otherwise Leelanau Cellers Wines make a nice bottle called "Autumn Harvest" (Red) for about $5. A nice white wine is called "Winter White".

Otherwise I'll dive into the Argentinian or Chilean wines. There is also a good South African wine called Inubu? I can't remember, its been a few years since I've had that one. It runs for about $25 -30.

Oh yes, I love wine. My favorites are German whites, usually the sweeter ones like Auslese and Spatelese. I love a good Moscato. There's a very small California winery, The Robert Pecota Winery, which has an absolutely awesome Muscat d' Andrea ($12/split.) The Robert Mondavi Winery of Napa Valley has a wonderful Moscato d' Oro ($22) that I try to stock up on whenever I find it. There's a couple of other Moscato wines that I have in my celler that slip my mind right now. When I go out and have wine in restaurants or bars, I've never found one that carries a Moscato and rarely one that carries an Auselese or Spatelese, so I usually settle for a glass of Piesporter. The German white wines that I prefer are usually from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine region. I also enjoy wines from the Nahe and the Ahr wine regions.

We have strange liquor laws in PA which prohibit the free ordering of wines for us straight from the vineyards. If the local store doesn't have it, I have a hard time finding it. But I'm writing down everyone's recommendations!!

The other good thing about a glass of wine is some good cheese with it too!

Blue cheese is great with red wine

I am not a huge fan of wine, although I am acquiring a taste for it. I still prefer blush wine..white and red are both too bitter I find.

I have tried many kinds too, I took a wine tasting course in college
post #15 of 25
My favorite is a White Zinfandel which is actually a blush so I don't understand the name. I'm not really knowledgeable about wine but I like any wine that is neither too dry or too sweet.

I love to unwind at the end of the day with a nice glass of chardonnay. My favourite is Sawmill Creek, which is a Niagara wine, although Peller Estates makes a lovely chardonnay as well.

I have a T-shirt I got from a vineyard in VA that says "Old Wino"!! Its wine dyed too!!
My favs have been NZ Sauvignon Blancs and Vino Verda (from Portugal) but I will drink most anything!!
post #18 of 25
Dh and I like a glass of wine with our evening meal, but very rarely buy it in the UK. We nip over to france two or three times a year and stock up.

I soo need that magnet! Hubby and I are on our second bottle now. whoopsie!

For those of you who enjoy a light, sweet, white wine: I recommend Bonny Doon Riesling from California. It has a screw top, but don't let that fool
you.

Oh YES!!! Bonny Doon Vineyard has some great wines! I've had their Circo Moscato d' Asti and Muscat Vin de Glacier, as well as their Framboise....all very good!

HeeHeee....if I ever find another magnet like that, I'll get it for you!

Ah yes, just about time for my glass of Merlot. Good for the heart, you know. I like the wines from various California wineries. Currently I'm drinking Morrow Bay. Other good ones are Kenwood, Beaulieu, Clos du Bois, Kendall Jackson and Beringer. I've also had some good Australian wines although I can't remember which wineries now.

Oooo!

I just remembered one more! Actually the name of it I shouldn't say here. The name of the wine another name for a female dog. It comes with a pink label, and is red.

Quite good too! Although it was slightly difficult to open (reassuring its name). Great to have for a girls night in!
