Now I have a question for you experts: What in the world is Mogen David wine./ it is truly the most deplorable thing I have ever tasted. No, I take that back. Ouzo was the most terrible, but that is not wine. GI's used to buy it in the ...

My favorite wine is anything made by Dr. Konstantin Frank, from the Finger L:akes region of new York and my neighborhood to the south of me. I onl became a wine drinker when I matured ( got old) and i still prefer Rhein and Mosel whites, but last ...

I enjoy sharing information and learning about wine. I also make my own fruit and berry wines at home. I always dreamed of growing my own wine grapes but that is just not possible up here in Alaska so I am fortunate that berries do very well here - ...

Thought I would join this group since I am a lover of wine and we have a plethora of wineries around this region. I am looking for a really good sweet wine. Just curious what you like for sweet wines out there.

Well, tonight I'm sitting at home, alone, drinking a very affordable Zin from a local vintner (but I bet all US-based group members can find it in your areas) called 7 Deadly Zins and watching my favorite "wine movie," Bottle Shock. I'm in ...

One of my greatest pleasures is winemaking with friends. Been doing it since 2001, a few hundred bottles a year. But despite all that slow (yet drunken, plus occasionally baked) learning, you have to love the process to like our wine, which can run ...

I am not a big wine drinker, but I like Gerwurtztraminer, the less sweet varieties. It pairs well with pork, bacon, shrimp, crab and asian and spicy dishes. Hot wings? Yeah, beer, but if you have an non-beer drinker that likes wine, it is a good ...

Last night we had a bottle of Clos Des Lunes Lune D'argent, with some cheese and crackers. Ideally, I'd like to describe it in real wine snob terms (notes of shoe leather and ennui; clean finish; drink now through 2021) but lacking the talent I'll ...

Great wine alert! This year's Louis Roederer Estates NV Brut champagne is a really good value at around $25/bottle. It's worth the extra 10 bucks if you're used to spending more like 10-15. It's got a wonderful, light apple taste on the finish. I got...

What I know about wine wouldn't fill a thimble so I'm here to learn. I like white zin and always have. I've tried it in a pretty wide range of prices and I always come back to Turning Leaf.
