    This is sure to start something, but if any of you drink wine, what is it? Personally, in addition to Bud light , I like a homegrown Texas wine, my favorites are St. Genivieve Red and Fall Creek vineyards Merlot. I also like Jameson's Irish Whiskey and good old Jack Daniels(Black). I make my own beer and mead from time to time.

    As a homebrewer, Sierra Nevada, is always a good choice! Nice flavor, good hops aroma! Good choice!

    Wild Irish Rose anyone?

    Just kidding. If I have to (2x's per year) I will never turn down the Caymus Conundrum. It is getting harder to find, but it goes with everything and the flavour (..vour) is awesome. Not very cheap, tho. :D

    Edna Valley Vinyards (San Louis Obisbo, Ca.) & Clos Du Bois (Sonoma, Ca.)

    These are the ones I consume for now. The Merlots for cooking and table, sometimes a Pineot Noir with smoked meats and the Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and White Zifandel's with most any meal.

    Drink beer also but not as much as I used to. But this is a "Wine Thread"

    If theres a "Beer Thread" started I'll go further into this there.

    Why not start a 'beer thread' on your own and lay it out there? I'm sure there are many beer lovers here, and not just those that buy the common stuff for daily consumption. Home brewers here, too.

    For the money, Clos Du Bois produces great wines. Although a large production winery their Briarcrest Cabernet Savignon, Marlstone (Bordeaux Style Cabernet) and reserve series wines are excellent!! Story winery is a small family winrey in Plymouth, Ca. has some outstanding Zinfandels as does Madrona winery in Camino, Ca.. The Madrona 2005 Zinfandel was spectacular!

    Where is the Beer thread? Found it http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f12/what-beer-do-you-drink-12609/

    I love sampling wines, but I don't have a brand I endorse, yet. However Fat Bastard appears to be my label.

    I have been drinking wine for years now, and have even won a few blind tastings with some selections I have brought to wine tastings. My favorite is ménage à trois,,,, I know it is a funny name for a wine,,,,,but it is very good. It is something when a $8 bottle of wine tastes better than a $28 bottle.
    Just my .02

    I like full bodied red wines, but my girlfriend has been turning me to white wine and I have to admit that there are some interesting ones. Luckily wine is affordable in Argentina, and we have a pretty good local industry (I used to own vineyards in Mendoza, ended up selling them). For $10 you can get some really good wines, and $30 will get you a top of the line bottle. Decent wines cost around $5!
