    Default Favorite wines?

    Horses and wine seem to go hand in hand.

    What's your favorite wine?

    Mine is Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling, and Winehaven's Honey Wine (Minnesota Winery)

    Pouilly-Fumé. I haven't found one I disliked thus far.

    My favorite is Shelburne Vineyards. They are a local vineyard in VT but oh man...some of the best tasting wines I've ever had!

    A big bottle of La Veille Ferme white. $14.98 and tastes terrific.

    I like many different chardonnay's but some don't like me and give me a headache pretty darn quickly. But one that we buy by the case is Charles Shaw or is also known as 'Three Buck Chuck'! Love it and it's very affordable!!!

    Quinto de Crasto if you can find it. They are a port house that also uses some of their grapes to make a wine. It is delicious. Their port also is scrumdidilyumptios!

    More moderately priced, Volver also is delicious. It is a $40 wine in a $15 bottle.

    For whites, Eroica is one of my favoirites, ands down. It is a reisling, but not at all typical of reislings (meaning that although it is sweet, it isn't sicklingly so.)

    I have incredibly cheap taste in wine, and dearly love any label Moscato. It is the kool-aid of wines!

    14 hands Merlot is a favorite as well as their Cab

    Also, Coppola - any of their reds are delicious.

    Coppola whites are also very nice.

    I really like the 14 Hands reds as well.

    My DH accused me of buying it because it has a horse on it, which was true -- but it is a nice wine for $7.98 at Sam's and I have bought it several times. I also like Malbecs for reasonably-priced reds, Don Gascon is a good one.

    Most of the NZ sauv blancs in the $10-20 range are pretty good, crisp and fruity but not too sweet, and I love Viognier in summer -- served it at my wedding. I like to mix it up as I get tired of the same wines over and over, regardless of how much I like them at first.

    I love Rieslings and some Muscatos. I like sweet wine, though. Although I like most anything white...

    For reds, Rosemont Shiraz is about the only one I like so far. I keep trying others, though, to see if I find others I like..

    I do like wine. A lot.

    I recently tried the Simply Naked wines and they are really good. The Chardonay is my favorite. I dont like wines that are really oaky and this one is great. They are relatively inexpensive as well.

    I had an excellent Grenache called B***H (Trying not to swear hear, but that's what it is called!).

    For reds, I do like Malbec and Pinot Noir.

    For whites, I prefer something dry - like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. There is a nice Ontario Reisling called "FLOURISH" that I came across this summer - not too sweet and able to pair with a variety of foods.

    I enjoy browsing the wine aisles and trying new wines... sometimes it's a name that grabs you (like FAT BA****D) or it can be a lable design...

    Oooo I love WINE!!!! I love all the varietals lately. Apothic Red is fabulous as well as the Menage a Trois red and white blends. Seven Daughters is another favorite.

    Otherwise any good Pinot grigio or Shiraz is fair game!

    I also like some of the Tuscan reds. Don't care at all for white or rose which is odd because I used to not like red wine at all.

    Fairview Weissar Reisling. <3. Sweet & fruity, but also refreshing & doesn't leave a bad aftertaste. And reminds me of heavenly days in South Africa.

    I also like Constantia Whites, can't remember the specific label but whichever the cheaper one is lol.

    All of the Simi wines are good. Their Pinot Noir is my favorite!
