I adore Red Wine but i can honestly say that I have no favourite. I forever change the types I buy as I hate sticking with one grape or producer. My favourite wine producing country at the moment however is tied. it is between Sicily and Chile. They are both making extraordinary reds currently.

Anyone else appreciate good wine?


Yes, I do.

What are your two favorite wines or the two BEST bottles you have ever had?


It's really hard to say. I have a friend who has a winery Rhineland Paltinate, and he gave the most excellent bottle of Beerenauslese (selected past-prime harvest). It was a 2003 bottle, and it was a Riesling, and was divine - tasted like brandied raisins.

Another one I won't forget is the Sommerachter Katzenkopf dry late harvest - Scheurebe grapes - from Franconia, which is just "over the hill". It won a gold prize for 2012 for best Franconian aromatic white wine.

Well in honor of all the gorgeous Australian women I went "Aussie" the other night. A huge tasty Aussie Rib Eye roast, rare, paired with a 98' and 02' "Dead Arm" Shiraz. Hard to say which bottle was better. The nose is so lush and rich with lots of black currant and eucalyptus. Both amazing wines and I have to respect D'Arenberg for not raising the price even though they keep getting outstanding ratings from Parker. Hard to find a better wine for US$50 if you ask me.

I appreciate wine and it appreciates me. We have a mutual agreement.

I don't. I have yet to find a bottle of wine that I'd rather drink than a coca-cola, or similar beverage. Maybe I just don't appreciate the flavors, but I've tried dozens, and have yet to find one I can enjoy.

When there is no Beer or Liquor around, I really appreciate wine!

I don't know shit about wine but every time I drink it with a lady friend I always seem to have an enjoyable night and I sure do appreciate it! Give me Grey Goose, though I am rather fond of Cristal.

Merlot, but hardly ever. Then again, I'm a vodka girl.

I miss wine and I'm certain that Spec's misses me.

I miss Cognac more...

I am not going to go out and say that I really know a ton of wine, but I do know that I like my wine white and dry.
