    Hey after our little wine talk last night I thought it would be cool if everyone named their favorite wine. I'm always looking to try new stuff!!

    We enjoy Bogle wines.
    Priced between $11-$17
    Their Merlot is awesome w/ a steak!!!:thumbup:

    I don't have a favorite brand, mostly because I make my own a lot of the time but I love a red zinfandel :)

    My favorite wine is definitely whatever it is that my wife is drinking that night.

    Also pairs nicely with a steak...

    I agree. What's better than a steak, wine and a scented candle? You just made yourself a dinner :)

    Missed the wine talk...some of us have actual WORK to do... :lol:

    My favorite is probably a white Zinfandel, don't care much what brand.

    I just have to laugh at the "brand" thing...

    Wines do not come by brands to choose from. First there are grape types, then there are regions they grow in, ...


    I fooking hate wine. Wine lovers make a religion out of it and I fooking hate it. Then you have the other kind of wine lovers, the ones that drink it because it is in, and they bug me even more.

    I hate wine.

    The only wine I drink is champagne and I could write you a book about it because I love the darn thing. But I won't. There are enough of them as it is.

    Rodney Strong Cabernet

    La Crema Chardonnay, and when I'm feeling rich

    Chateauneuf Du Pape, Domaine Du Pegau (2004) - about $240 per bottle, if you can find it.

    You won't find a better red wine to go with steak than that 2004 Chateauneuf Du Pape.

    So far....

    Vinaria Bostavan Black Doktor (from Moldova)
    ~$8-10/bottle
    It is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Saperavi grapes and has just a very light sweetness and dryness to it. For me it is the happy medium between wet/dry and sweet/bitter.

    Upstate NY Fulkerson Winery's Red Zeppelin-not to be confused with the Red Zeppelin Winery in CA.
    Western NY Noble Winery Bear Bramble Blush
    Western NY Johnson Estate Liebstropfchen (Love Drops), Grapeagranat,
    Ontario Canada-Hernder Vineyards ICE WINE!!! Black Currant, Iced Strawberry, Vidal
    NY Hudson Valley-Happy B1tch winery Happy B1tch Rose

    Most of which are pretty cheap and NONE of which are expensive. Well, Ice Wine will run you about $50 a glass-those bottles are LITTLE!!! LOL!

    I'm not sure if you can get many BC wines where you are but a couple I enjoy from Cali that are in the price range in Canada are:

    Ravenswood - Zinfandel (this is the Red that got my wife to finally start enjoying reds)

    Apothic Red - Winemaker's Blend

    If you see any Road 13 from Oliver, BC, the Honest John's Red is a great value as is the Rockpile (about $24 here)
