Fill 'er Up

All the way to the top, don't be skimpy k?

Over the last two years, I have become more of a wine drinker. I used to be a Vodka gal, and I would have a glass of white wine once in a while. And I'm not talking in a refined restaurant with a well cooked meal. I'm talking red-neck, backwoods, hick town, white trashin it up: box Chardonnay over ice, in a tumbler no less. I'm bringing classy back. Ahem.

Since most of the hood is also in to drinking wine, I thought it was definitely time to broaden my horizons. I have tried red wine, white wine, desert wines and homemade wines.

Here is what I have come to realize: I DO NOT like white wine. Every once in a while it's ok, but for the most part, I want the red.

Now, I like ALL kinds of reds. Merlot, Cabernet, Malbec, Pinot, Shiraz, Sirah. I'm not one of those wine snobs (just a coffee snob) so I don't think it is necessary to spend $100 on a bottle of wine. BUT, I will also say for the most part? You get what you pay for.

Here are some of my new found favorites:

Found this one on accident at the liquor store. I was there to get the Whipped Cream Vodka for ladies night and this was on the clearance rack. Thought I would give it a shot and I love it!

 

This is one that PB picked out and man is it smooth!

Moxie found this one at our local grocery store and it is quickly becoming a staple! Makes me smile every time I buy it!

 


This is also one that PB introduced me to. I buy this one more than any other one, even though all the wine's above are my favorites!

I am always looking for new recommendations for a great bottle of wine. So let me know what you like. Is there a certain kind you drink with your favorite meal? Or a bottle you will buy when you know you have company coming over?


Some days I wish I had this glass............. just sayin.

You should go into detail about what each one taste's like or why you like it... I say this because I want to find a good wine that I can enjoy but so far I've hit a wall with the wines I've had and HATE them...
