Default do you like wine?

I have never been a wine kind of person. I'm thinking it's because i've never found a wine i actually like. But, i've discovered that i like dessert wines. I'm not knowledgeable on what wine is what and what wine goes with what food. I just know if i like the taste of

I tried a pink muscoto champagne tonight... it was pretty good. I think i'd buy it again. I was hoping to find the primo muscoto amor'e, but no luck. I'm thinking of heading to our local winery we have here in north georgia and sampling some different wines.

Do you drink wine, what kinds do you prefer?

I don't mind wine, and I enjoy it at night. I just have a hard time finding a decent wine. Some of them just taste like "getting trashed" wine...not just "for enjoying" wine, if you get what I mean.

Little Penguin Merlot isn't bad, though. Yellowtail Merlot is NUTS. I heavily dilute it with Cran-Grape. Little Penguin Chardonnay is the same way.

Well, I drank a bottle of red last night...

I go for reds or rose wines mostly, though I've found a white here and there that I like as well. I used to hate wine until I went to a winery and did an official "tasting" - learned that the wines I had tried in the past were all quite dry and I am sooo not a dry wine person.

Most beginning wine drinkers don't like dry wine at all. They prefer sweet. If you're just starting on wine, go with the sweet wines or dessert wines.

I love wine. A good, rich glass of merlot or cabernet sauvignon is as good as a meal. Our closet in the library is my wine cellar, LOL. I usually keep at least a dozen bottles on hand. I don't drink wine often, maybe every other week or so, but I prefer it to beer any day. My favorite is dry wine. It's just so crisp, and I love the way it evaporates off the tongue and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed.

Not a fan of sweet wines. I enjoy them on occasion, but to me, they taste too much like wine coolers or juice.

I love wine but I've cut way back due to the excess of calories.

Absolutely. I started out like you, Nancy, not liking anything too dry. Riunite wines were good, even the lambrusco. Then I developed a taste for Spanish, German and Italian wines, which I still like, and white grenache, then white Zinfandel (Beringer!), Alice White's Lexia fit into that and I still like it on occasion, then onto the Chilean wines, especially from Concha y Toro vineyard.

Now I drink primarily reds, Shiraz, Old Vine Zinfandel (the BotaBox is actually decently good!), Cabernet, Pinot Noir, although I like some whites, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Casilero del Diablo's Chardonnay and sometimes a Beringer Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

You'll find your tastes change.
