can't stand wine [smilie=icon_redface.gif] Can't see what all the fuss is about. It seems to me it's drunk by people who can't drink pints [smilie=icon_wink.gif]

I'm not a wine fan either.

Don't think I'm quite civilised enough to drink that stuff!

I love a glass of red but I'm not enough of a connoisseur to make recommendations. I'm indifferent to white wine.

chateau neuf du pap is generally a decent red. Can be a bit expensive but decent.

Hint of apricot and apple fermented in stainless steel casks to provide a clean fresh elegant taste. [smilie=icon_mrhappy.gif]

try a nice Sancerre - white or red.
White rioja is great if you get a good one & for something a bit different try a Viognier - fantastic fragrant nose but sharp & zesty on the palate - a good one will amost fizz in the mouth even though it's not a sparkling.... [smilie=icon_wink.gif]

I've just finished the last of this years Beaujolais.......very tasty.

Red wine is the way to go.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape or a good Pinot Noir everytime please 8)

I used to be a strictly red only man Scouser, but thats mainly because I hadnt discovered the right whites yet.
White is the new red in wine terms....trust me [smilie=icon_wink.gif]
Try a nicely chilled viognier mate - you'll not regret it :grin:

( having said that, if I had to pick a single wine for Desert Island Drinks it'd probably be a good Chateauneuf-du-Pape - they take some beating )

I've drunk wine on and off for years, but never really found one that didn't make me feel like I'd just had a swig of battery acid.
Most cheap white (under a fiver) seems to be dry, and I prefer something sweeter.

I've just started drinking again, and have decided white wine is the way to go. But wines in pubs are usually cheap and nasty ( although they charge a lot for a glass )and I've had a few shockers recently.
I have discovered one or two bottles from New Zealand for around a tenner that have gone down a treat at home.

Me and Mrs Chillout are going to buy a bottle per week and experiment with a few different labels. I'll let you know the results soon.
