I love wine and I buy a lot but I find that I buy the same ones everytime, I would love to have other idea's or recommendations. What's your favorite wine?
Just about any decent red wine! Cork please (no screw top )
There is one that I can get regularly that I enjoy and is pretty cheap from a region of france, Corbières
I am with you on that, I want the cork now screw tops...France, huh? Everything is good in France Thanks for commenting.
Screw tops or Stelvin closure as it is called keeps wine just as fresh as a cork does. It is actually much easier to open a screw top than uncork a bottle.
For a great tasting wine that will not break the bank try Candor Merlot
a ripe, full-bodied Merlot. The wine is loaded with ripe plum, blackberry and currant fruit, sweet, nicely integrated tannins, and hints of spice.
Candor Zinfandel is fleshy and fruity with that certain tongue- slapping spice that Zins are known for; chocolate and prune weave a sweetness into a clove-y, gobby-yet creamy finish.
I love them both.
I would suggest trying some local wines. There are usually tons of options. Around here, there are many tasting events at different wine boutiques and I always find something I like. Great way to find new favorites.
chateau ste michelle cabernet 2006 is a really nice red wine.
it comes from columbia valley in washington which produces a nice affordable wine that tastes more expensive.
OMG!!! That is like my favorite wine, truly, the one I always buy, we have great taste Thank you
My favorite wine ( when I can find it ) is Amon-Ra, an Australian Shiraz that consistently rates at 96 or 100 points...if you like a heavy, multi-layered red wine that paints your glass with thick legs, this is your wine...A less expensive wine that has similar body and texture is Jordan, a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is absolutely delicious..Both of these wines should be savored slowly either with a meal or enjoyed without...A much overlooked inexpensive red wine ( under $15 ) is a central coast ( Paso Robles ) Cabernet Sauvignon by J. Lohr that has black cherries, chocolate, and burnt sienna flavors that linger on the tongue and palate...Enjoy...Larry
AWWW, Larry, you are the best, I have tried the J Lohr and I do love it very much. I am going to buy the others you mention because our tastes are very similiar and I am sure I will like them. I appreciate you commenting! Can't wait to try these wines...if it wasn't Sunday I would go buy them now!
my favorite? hmm. that's a toughy.
Petit Syrah (esp. David Bruce) but i enjoy most wines, less Merlot.
Wines from Chile are becoming popular as well. We live were the Corporate Headquarters of Constellation Brands are so I have an opportunity to mingle with many wine snobs and that is their latest advice to me.

I like shiraz if I am at the grocery store. My fav is homemade raspberry.
I'm partial to Pinot Noir for a nice red that doesn't hit me over the head with tannins.
For white, I'll drink anything that has some substance. I've gotten away from reds over the years, but the pattern is cyclical...
There is just so much good stuff out there right now.
The Pinot's and white wine's from New Zealand offer outstanding acidity which is so different than what the rest of the world is producing.
Spain/Portugal are completely under-rated and something at $20 from these countries can be truly outstanding wine. Especially the red wines.
California still offers the most diverse group of growing conditions and winemaking styles out there. Prices can be high if you don't know what to look for. Paso Robles looks like it's the next worldwide wine capital.
Mmmmmmmmmmmm Red wine or Kırmızı sarap as it is known here.
Unfortunately, its really hard to get a decent red wine here in Turkey :-(
When I lived in the UK though my favourite was the Rosemount Shiraz (Australian). Heavy on the tanin, hints of rasberry and vanila and velvety on the tongue (withdrawal symptoms here).
Close second was anything with a Wolfblass label.
A Domaine Drouhin, Oregon Pinot Noir is one of the best I've every tried. Oregon is making some wonderful Pinot's these days and would encourage everyone to try some varietals from there.
Also, like CMHyno says, Cloudy Bay Sauv Blanc's are excellent. I've been to the winery in NZ and it's a superb wine. If you like Sauv Blanc's, would recommend a winery called Kim Crawford from NZ. You can find it in Costco for around $13 bucks a bottle. It's excellent, lot of depth with lot of fruit.
Lastly, if you every go to Napy Valley CA, try Chateau Montelana. They crank out a phenomenal Cabernet to die for. They aren't cheap but you will not be disappointed, trust me.
Depends on the occasion or the food the wine is to accompany.
I generally prefer dry wines.
Either a good Barolo or Carta Roja, which is a lovely rioja.
Inniskillin ice wine (see hub of same name if interested)
It is a yummy sweet Canadian dessert wine
Syrah & Chianti are my favorites. Light & delicious red wines. =]
I enjoyed Oregon Grog this past Christmas season. It's a fruity, sweet wine made especially for the holidays. It's only available in Oregon and sold from November to January.
Any Banrock Station, but the best must be Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz; it’s a sparkling red wine, very nice, although I am having trouble finding it these days.
Italian and French wines.
I am Italian, so the best wines are:
Barolo, Bolgheri, Chianti classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Sagrantino di Montefalco.
Choosing wine glasses is almost as important as choosing the wine itself. Some cheeses go better with white wine, some with red; yet almost all pair well with dry rosé, which has the acidity of white wine and the fruit character of red. So, for me Dry Rosé is the best-.

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 ...

Does the stem of a wine glass have a purpose or is it just for looks?
