I Like Red Wine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,410 People

    Teenagers don't often drink wine,

    we often start with beer or somethin. But wine was the first alcoholic beverage I drank, and I still prefer a good glass of red wine with some grapes, biscuits, and cheese, rather than a glass of beer. I'm a little more cultured than expected...

    I Live In South Australia...wine Country,

    It's hard to describe how good it feels to taste that perfect drop of red wine. Not exactly orgasmic, but close. I am going to start a catalogue of my favourites, For starters, I highly recommend Grant Burge Cab Sav Merlot 2007.

    Why I Like Red Wine

    I like red wine because it tells a story.  About the grapes, the sun and the rain, the soil.  About the winemaker, and what they think a wine should be, and who they think will drink it, what they will drink it with. When I have a glass of red wine with my meal at...

    I could drink a nice glass of merlot every day.

    I also hate when people who don't know wine put it in the fridge.

    I was sitting at my desk,

    reached out for my nice full glass of red wine, over-reached and knocked it flying. Red wine went flying all over the desk and the computer. Though the carpet remained unscathed, I managed to get it all down the wall. Now I need to repaint. Such a tragic waste.

    Recommended Reds

    I agree with Pinot Noirs being good. My favorite Italian reds are Montepulciano (Marche and Puglia regions) and Rosso Conero (Marche region). My favorite French red is St Emilion and I recomend going the extra expense of a "Gran Cru". I have been enjoying reds for...

    I love red wine, but my tastebuds are

    apparently entirely unsophisticated. I've never had a bottle that cost more than $20 that I could finish. Barefoot Sweet Red I could drink by the gallon, though. LOL

    The Corbieres And The Minervois.

    These wines made here in the Languedoc are among my absolute favourites. I enjoy wines from the Carbardes too. I also favour Fitou wines.

    I Enjoy It But I'm Not A Wine Snob

    The best way to enjoy a bottle of red wine is toopen it and allow it to breathe, if it does not look like it's breathing give itmouth to mouth resuscitation.

    There Are Wines Especial To Me.

    I like a light red wine as an every day kind of wine, leaving fuller-bodied wines for more special occasions. Obviously, coming from the south of France I do like the quintessential reds from Provence and the Languedoc, and Roussillon. Gigondas is a favourite, from the Rhone...

    Big Reds

    I love big red wines.  Not the soft blends that are popular but heavy a cabernet or merlot.Molly Dooker is one of my favorites along with a less expensive Cupcake Cabernet.  I love a good Port as well.  All of Cockburn's ports are excellent.

    Would Like To Try It Properly

    I've never really tasted wine... I would love to go to somewhere like a wine region with great fresh food, old winery buildings that can be explored with someone who enjoys a nice day out and could teach me :-)

    Shiraz

    For a while there I only drank shiraz (like a couple of years). Now I have branched out, but it's still my favourite. Now I think I just drink too much!

    I like red wine. It doesn't need to be

    refrigerated. I can keep it on the counter and drink it as room temperature.
