I have an uncle with a vineyard in Paw Paw, MI ...so as I was growning up we made our own. So during the fall as a kid the family would go pick asparagus and press grapes on a weekend...

He's stopped now, he's over 100. But every once in a while we find a gallon in some relatives basement...

yeah, he's one of those 'indestructible people'... the main story is that he was ran over by a wagon being pulled by a team of horses he was driving that got spooked by a truck (I think he was 17 or 18). The doctor wanted him to go to chicago for treatment but his mom wouldn't let it happen... so apparently he had his stomach replaced with a goat stomach and he spent a year laying on, and strapped to, a door to keep his back straight.

This event precipitated my grandmother getting her drivers license at the age of 13.

It's got to be RED - Pessac Léognan for me (from the south bordeaux area) White - Unoaked Semillon Blanc from Chile!! and then of course Pedro Ximenez from Spain

I like red the best... mostly Shiraz or Cabernet. I guess my all time favorite is Divino's Pinot Noir. Divino is a small vineyard in British Columbia. The area is called the Okanagan and it is quickly gaining ground as some of the best wines in the world. Imagine that, a Canadian wine that ranks as world case. If you are able to get some I urge you to try them. I'm sure you will be impressed.

... of course I still prefer a good micro brewed beer.

i'm an 'equal opportunity drinker' and love all things alcohol (for the most part)....with wine, it depends on the situation.....if i'm eating steak, yeah a good shiraz or merlot is called on for the task, or when anything spicey is beein' eaten....but if i'm "drinkin' to get drunk' i find the hearty reds, a bit too much for my belly....whites and zen's are much easier to drink higher qualities of....i can put down two bottles of riesling or any white zen, but to do the same with a heavy merlot is a daunting task.....it depends on what i'm eating at the time....

but riesling is my 'bud light' of wines....i can consume large quantities of it without it being a problem....heavy reds are like Guiness to me...i'm good for 2 or 3 but anything past that becomes 'work'.....ok i lied, i have drank a few bottles of red a few times.

something we have down here is called "white merlot"

this wine i LOVE!!!! although it only comes in the 'cheap' variety...it's a translucent red (darker than zen, but still more red).....

this is my "go-to" wine when drinking to get drunk....it's almost TOO versatile whith food.....not too complex, and a quick finish, but i have yet to see a "top shelf white merlot"...which leads me to think that it's just a bunch of BS as far as "good" wines go....

i love the stuff and i keep it cold, i donno if i'm supposed to or not, but cold white merlot (wow i think those three words broke every rule in the wine book!) is my personal overall favorite.

Bleak, which one Thunderbird or MD20/20?

Either one will rip your innards out if you drink too much of it.

As for real wines, I suggest anything from here. www.childressvineyards.com/home.asp

Good ole boys can make some damn tasty wines. I like a few of his higher end wines. Not tried any of the standards yet though.

You can consider yourself lucky then. No teenage sloppy drunks running around and throwing up on your steps.
