Sigh, summer, pah!

Have I already voted? I will drink red and white in summer and winter (respectively), I also wear black in the summer. So there.

Anyway, I like syrah/shiraz, pinot noir, sangiovese(?), lots of table reds and pinot grigio, sauv blanc, chardonnay...... I like wine. Merlot and red zins on occasion also work.

Bubbly!
I will toast a glass of bubbly to all of you that have put posts on this topic wishing you the best of the holiday season.

Some people just save Champagne and sparkling wine for special occasions. As far as I am concerned every day you open your eyes in the morning is a special occasion. What's your favourite bubbly?

Very Happy

When we got married someone got us a bottle of Dom Perignon. We had that and groom cake for breakfast the next morning. Best champagne I ever tasted.

I like champagne. Wonder why it's only popular with special occassions. Then again, only time I've gone out and bought it just to drink it was to drink with some hizzo I was going to get nekkid with.

Oh, Slappy so that is why that SOB bought that bottle of champagne on my first and only blind date! (It didn't work by the way!)

White. I am a racist wine drinker.

My favorite is Santa Margarhita Pinot Grigio. Fabulous.

You've never heard it, because it's a semi-made up word.

Slang for "ho."

Re: Rieslings and Muscats...try Torrontes

Portal Star...and every one else,

You might want to try a grape native to Argentina called "Torrontes". The best wines from the Torrontes grapes come from the northern part of the Mendoza province. They are not easy to find but are worth the search. It results in a wine that is a little bit Riesling, a little bit Muscat, a little bit Gewurtztraminer and something else. It is so versatile it goes with a lot of different types of foods, especially ones with a bit of spice. I discovered this grape only 5 months ago and think the resulting wines can be amazing. Watch out for Argentina!


I had a big crush in high school on this guy named Torrente, so I'll remember that. Thanks!
