    I like red blends with big cuts of meat or spiced meat like hot sausage. Just opened a bottle of red blend from the supermarket and it is soooo good with these dry rubbed pork shoulder steaks. Fuckin' GREAT. Gotta love a bottle of red with a huge piece of seasoned meat.

    I don't drink but I love to cook with wine.

    Normally I go:
    White Wine = fish, poultry, Pork
    Red Wine = Beef, Lamb

    I don't. I'm not some half-a-fag. I prefer beer or water.

    I love to drink but I never drink when I'm eating. Water or sweet tea while I eat, booze afterwards...

    That being said I was never a wine drinker until recently. My girl got me on those cheap boxes of wine from wal-mart and I can drink the shit out of them. Love the buzz. Hangover is the worst though.

    The only time I drink wine with dinner is if I'm some place really fancy. The last time I was at this joint called 801 Chophouse and ordered the lamb and got a fancy bottle of red wine.

    I enjoy a nice chilled Thunderbird while dining at the dumpster behind the Taco Hut.

    I sometimes enjoy the company of a lady on my gustatory adventures.

    With chicken, shrimp or fish, I usually drink a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough region. Most Chardonnay and other white wines are about as interesting as goat piss. For steak I like Bordeaux style Cab blends from Napa or Washington State (Columbia Valley). Aussie Shiraz is almost always decent.

    Good boy. As a matter of fact, I only drink wine with food, or with women...usually/hopefully both.

    When I was in Naples we found an out of the way hole in the wall restaurant, all they served was lasagna and homemade lambrusco. Really good, and cheap too.

    None. I don't drink wine.

    I will do some champagne though and love a
    Mimosa with breakfast.

    I don't follow wine etiquette. Doesn't matter if I am eating beef, fish or poultry. I drink whatever wine sounds good to me at the time. But then again I am not a wine snob. I can't tell the difference between a 20.00 bottle of wine and a 200.00 bottle of wine.

    There are plenty of great wines at a good low price. I was recommended to try 2010 Crane Lake Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a very good wine. Not, "Hey, this is 5 dollars and not swill" but just a very good wine. They make a ton of that value, mass produced stuff and I've liked it so far.

    Another company like that is Columbia Crest.

    Columbia Crest has consistently been one of the best values for several years. Their $30 Cabs are better than most $50 Napas. Their "Grand Estates" label is the best combination of low price and quality.

    Philistine. Donkey cum is too acidic. Yak piss would compliment Steakums much, much better. For the Pepto, you'll need something sweeter. I would recommend diabetic Yak piss.

    There is no charge. :cool:

    wine is the only alcohol I drink...beer is shit...unless it's a hearty full beer.

    I mostly buy wine at my BJ's wholesale club...you can't beat the prices. You can get a $10 bottle for $6....and a $30 bottle for $19

    Maso Canali - Pino Grigio very good white http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A3DCFS4/?tag=wackbagcom-20

    Amancaya - Malbec/cabernet sauvignon blend that is a very nice full red...

    anyone every try the Colome Malbec? I think I might give it a try....

    As said earlier there are lots of great Shiraz's...and I like the Argentine Reds as well..

    Cooking -

    For whites I like to use
    Kendall Jackson Vintners Reserve Chardonnay - (It's good in the summer cold too) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AEDHE7A/?tag=wackbagcom-20

    For Red
    Jacob's Creek Shiraz - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009MYI16U/?tag=wackbagcom-20


    and with a twinkie? Probably a Sauterne

    Our family at the get togethers has been drinking a load of lambrusco. That has made a comeback in a big way, those frizzante all-day drinking wines. It is now the table wine for those family get together occasions like baptisms, holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. Moscato is all over, too.

    I like a wine that isn't near as sweet but they do go pretty good with the heartier dishes. People tell you to drink them with fruit, yogurt and ice cream, chocolate and all that bit is just too much sweet stuff going on. Why drink a dessert wine with dessert?

    I think it is best with stuff like hot dish and stroganoffs. Not what people recommend it for but I like it.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Zinfandel. Not white zin for gods sake. A regular old red Zin. It's great with any red meat or just a glass on its own. A reasonably priced ($17) easy to find one if you want to try it is 7 deadly zins.
