    There’s no one answer to this question. Too many variables-time of year, temperature, time of day, what am I am planning to eat etc etc etc

    Riesling is my favorite, I love it super sweet. Living in California’s wine country I find myself definitely in the minority as red wine is big around here.

    I really only like sweet white wines such as Riesling or Gewurztraminer. I can sip on some Chardonnay, but mostly use it for cooking.

    I prefer white (or the occasional rose).  Most red wines I find too dry (although there are a few that I’ve found that I enjoy).

    I love most reds, except Merlot. My favorites are Malbec and Shiraz…and now to the kitchen!

    Champers is my fave so white.  And I love Sauv blancs.  But you can give me a full bodied red any time.  Love it!

    As a lot of people don’t particularly like red wine (at least those people that don’t regulary drink wine),so for our wedding we are having a bottle of white and a rose on each table, instead of white and red.  We will just have red wine available at the bar. I think it will work better this way for our friends and family 🙂

    @Treejewel19: Ooh thanks for the recommendation. Even though I’m in CA, when I get nostalgic for home I buy the Chateau Ste. Michelle wines (WA). They have a really good Riesling. It runs under their premium line called Eroica.

    @aleeshabobeesha: Know it well, it is everywhere around here! That and Jekyll Reisling (from Monterey) also very good.

    @aprose: Oh I’m a believer now for sure…and the Fiance and I are planning a trip soon. Just don’t tell any of my neighbors I’m leaving my own wine country back yard for Oregon alternatives.

    Cool
