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?
