With two wine posts in one day I am beginning to think I might not be the only wine drinker in here. So who drinks wine on a regular basis? What is your favorite type and brand? Also, since most of us don't drink only our favorite, what do you drink with a normal meal? My favorite wines are those made with the Spanish Tempranillo grape. My two favorite regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero. My all time favorite bottle was a 1993 Vina Tondonia reserva (reserve) that I drank about two years ago (2003). I drink a little bit of everything depending on the weather, food, the mood I'm in etc. but for about the past 5 yrs I have been drinking mostly Spanish Roijas like Campo Viejo and Montecillo. Recently I have started drinking more wine from Argentina. There native grape is called Malbec, Alamos is a very nice one. I used to try and keep a couple bottles on hand. That never worked, I'd always have most of them drunk before i bought more. Then I found out most stores will give you a discount when buying a case (12 bottles). So I started buying by the case. I would almost always have just over a case at the house. This worked until my wife (like many women) got sick of looking at boxes in the closet. She decided I needed a wine rack and bought me one for Christmas a couple years ago. Then I bought a bigger rack for a basement. Now I usually keep about ten cases at the house. (I've got a little over thirteen right now, though. That is due to the holiday season and soon enough everything will fit in the wine racks again). Once I get my basement cleaned up I'll take some pics of my bar.
