    Even when I drunk alcohol, I never liked the taste of wine - horrible stuff

    I think I would always take a Merlot (espsh from Chile) But in Spain they have Tempranillo for 2 EURO a bottle, so I like both. Not one for following brands but whenever I see McGuigan wines on an offer I buy these as they a lovely, regardeless of the grape. So actually, I can't really answer this. Will be interesteting to read the comments though and thanks for posting this.

    Joking apart, last year was in Malta several times and found local wine 2-3 Euros a bottle which was perfectly acceptable....

    if it comes in a bucket, is red, either Chilian or South African, Ill drink it
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I am a great connorsewer of wines and I have a rather extensive wine cellar. I have many wines from many regions..I find the Grapes of languedoc to be particularly angelic at this time of year.

    My prize possessions are a bottle of Chateau Lafeet (circa 1787) and a 1949 Richebourg.

    I like a nice Merlot or Shiraz. I cannot really tell the difference between a 4 bottle of wine and a 40 one and am still not sure if that is a good or bad thing (I can make a case either way).

    I never drink white wine and my wife only drinks white wine, when having wine. As such, I tend to think of red wine as being more of a man's drink and white a woman's. Whilst realising that is far too simplistic, would it be true to say that men drink more red and women more white?
    'I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my father. Not screaming and terrified like his passengers.' (Bob Monkhouse).

    Sky? Believe in better.

    I didn't touch the stuff until I started work in the Diplomatic Corps.....that's when the force feeding of the stuff started, and it weren't cheap stuff either. Four years of entente cordiale in Paris did quite a lot to keep my newly found love affair with fine wine on the tracks.

    Nowadays any cheap, Merlot preferred, 11% of the red stuff will do, aided by a nice bag of crisps and salted peanuts [sieved of the salt].

    Thank goodness I'm generally a healthy eater and keep myself fit. xx

    Ice wine from North America, Canadian being my all time favourite, although the Yanks do produce some pretty good stuff as well.
    New Zealand Ice wine ain't bad either.

    No idea. I do like it but only have it at xmas. Its usually white though. There seems to be millions of different wines in supermarkets. How they all sell enough to survive i dont know. Theres too much choice really. I have no clue about what all the different wordings mean, shiraz etc. Or what the differences between italian wine, french wine etc are.

    I used to like a tempranillo but, annoyingly, red wine gives me a headache nowadays.

    Sauvignon Blanc, preferably from NZ, but it's often a cheaper one from Chile.

    We tried a South African one last week - not keen.
