    What's Not to Love?

    I used to drink beer. Not Coor's or **** like that, but really good craft brews. Even as far back as 1990 when the whole microbrewery concept hadn't taken off yet. But once I moved to the Bay Area, I started drinking more wine. And now I drink almost nothing else. I mean c'mon...

    French And Italian Wines I Love With Food

    French wines that I go crazy for are Burgundy, Bordeaux, Loire, Champagne, northern Rhone. Italian wines that I love with food are Barolo, Barbaresco and Chianti Classico. Having a nice bottle to share with funny friends over a simple home-cooked meal is a perfect event. I try...

    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.

    Red wine is so great! It's my happy drink I drink when I want to put a cheshire cat grin on my face! Oh but the head aches it can cause :( I favor merlots myself in the red wine category. Anyone else?

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    St. Emilion Gran Cru

    Back when I was working and earning good money, I loved for people to tell me that they did not like red wine. I would introduce them to some fine wine instead of the Kool Aid that they were used to.

    Quite enjoy a glass of red wine on occasion,

    like tonight. And not the cheap nasty stuff either. I like to indulge a little bit if I'm going to be drinking it, especially since it's a rarity. There's nothing better than relaxing at the end of the day with a good red. I'm an old soul. :P

    Recommended Reds

    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.

    Early In My Journey With Reds

    I shared a bottle of Beaujolais last night that was wonderful. I love Merlot, Shiraz, and a few other things--some good blends and stuff. I'm always, always looking for something new to try. I'm not a long time drinker of reds, so I'm still wary of real heavy tannins and I like...
