    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.
