I rarely drink wine… Actually I don’t think I have ever… Can you bees recommend some? Can you list your:
“It’s kind of pricey but totally worth it”
“It’s under $20 but still good”
“Go to under $15”
or just your recommendations. 🙂

Commenting mostly to follow, because I’ve been wanting to start drinking wine. Reisling is my favorite thus far and I generally go for Flip Flop or Fish Eye. Where I’m at I can get either for less than $10, and I think they’re delicious. (But, like I said, I have very limited experence with wine)

If you can find ice wines, they are realllly good. A little more expensive than regular wine but very worth it. I think they are also palatable to non-wine drinkers because they are a little sweeter.

SilverWire: WestCoastV: Thank you thank you. 🙂 Hopefully my area carries the recommendations. I’m making a grocery list and will include some of these to taste. 😀

I like cabernet sauvignon, malbec, and merlot (all reds). If you’re buying your own wine for the wedding, I would actually recommend BotaBox. YES, it is boxed wine, but check it out- it has gotten rave reviews and I personally think it’s quite good (and if you have a bar setup then guests won’t see where it’s coming from. I do food writing professionally, so while I’m not a sommelier, I do have a good palate.
For variety sake I would get a malbec or merlot for red, and a shiraz and a reisling for white.

Washington Hills, Firestead & Chateau St Michelle are my favorite Rieslings.
Had a really good red moscato last night. I think it was Rex Goliath.
I’ve tried several of the Coppola’s brand and they never disappoint.
One that I will absolutely NEVER try again is Gnarley Head. I can’t remember if it was a merlot or Pinot, but it was terrible! Had to poor rest down sink.

Susana888: All of the wines I listed are under 30. But I know some mind-blowingly good red in the 30-50 price range that are sooooo worth it, if you also want to know.

Susana888: no brand suggestions but chianti is divine. I hate Pinot noir, Pinot Grigio etc.
I only go in for cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and chianti. It sucks though because my friends drink my least favorites and I can’t drink a whole bottle. I know they have the baby bottles but i never think that far ahead.

Wente Chardonnay or Kim Crawford sauvinion blanc ! Pricey and delish.

I only drink moscato, and mostly the lower alcohol content ones (5-7%) which are sweet and basically taste like delicious grape juice.
My number one favorite is the Cupcake brand moscato d’asti, followed by saracco moscato and the moscato by 93cellars.

Any kind of moscato, they are all under $15 and they are very sweet.
