How do you determine a good Wine?
If you are not a Wine Connoisseur
There are some guides to fine wines but for me it is the wine I like.
If someone has to give me a lengthily explanation about why a wine is good or fine I've found there is only about a 40% chance that I will like the taste. If they just say "Hey taste this wine." and leave it up to me that chance goes way up.
In short I drink what I like. I don't care about anything else. Back when I used to party with friends who were "Wineys" I always brought a wine I enjoyed. Something they often looed down on as "commercial" like a Blue Nun.
What I always found was that this was the wine that disappeared first.
These days I usually go for something like a white zinfandel.
Red wines or campaign both give me a headache or a hangover, even in small quantities.
I have to say that I'm more of a hard liquor drinker either straight or mixed.
I find that Wine is a thing that is very personal as well as class oriented. What maybe good to you maybe trash compared to the tastes of others you dine with at a different socio-economic class. Thanks for your feedback.
I know a good wine not only by tasting it but also when I don't have any aches the next day after a few glasses. Usually one would feel tired after a first glass that kind of wine is a NO. South Africa has some of the world's best wines and my favorite is dry red.

What's your favorite red wine?There are many red wines to choose from these days. The traditional Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon remain favorites for many. But there are also others, like Pinot Noir and Malbec, both favorites as of late. Many vintners are creating hybrids as well. Your thoughts ...

Do you talk to a wine retailer, do you read Wine/Food magazines, visit wine websites or do you just randomly pick wines of the shelf ??
