    Coppela makes a great inexpensive wine - not cheap, but not expensive.

    Coppela is good! I like Seven Oaks a LOT, it's about $14 and of course our standby Menage au Trois for like about $8. One I had a convo with a pilot about that wine that made everyone go dead silent.... I said IT'S WINE, you guys!!!!! HAHAHAHA Um what else, oh I know, LAYER CAKE!!! Yummo!!!!!

    $4?!?! Hole shit. I guess our booze is pretty highly taxed here.

    I love cavit pinot grigio and barefoot wines, cavit is pricey for me $10+ barefoot is $6. Barefoot also makes great champagne

    Ermagerd Barefoot is like $12 here. I like their Pinot Grigio too, but my heart belongs to Gabbiano.

    I like Barefoot Sweet Red $11 for the big bottle or $7 for the small one. Or Sweet Bitch which I believe is about the same price.

    I don't like dry wines and neither of those are too dry.

    Hmm for a sparkling I like lambrusco, there's a company called I'll who makes a good one. Also a big fan of Cupcake Red Velvet and Apothic Red, both are mixed reds not too dry. Actually having some red velvet tonight ;)

    Well I drank the whole bottle tonight, Its only about 2 1/2 cups so I'm not a drunk I swear. I love Barefoot and I'm ashamed to say I haven't tried the others. Looks like its time to get my drink on, I am not changing my name.

    What's a good beginner wine? I am ashamed to say I don't like wine, maybe haven't met the right bottle yet...
    I like beer and whiskey, but am open to expanding my drinking horizons.

    I tend to like dessert wines. The sweeter the better. Over the holidays my sister in law turned me on to chocolate wine. I had seen it in the state stores and it struck me as weird. I ended up eating my words. I like it. I just had the brand cupcake...red velvet. Not as sweet as I like. But, its not bad.

    We have a winery up my way that makes jalapeno wine. Chillin in the fridge haven't tried it yet.

    Believe it or not, Aldi's has decent wine-about $4/bottle. I've had the moscato and the merlot, but they have a few others, too.

    @beachy at first I was not a wine drinker!! Give me a mixed drink and I was good to go, my MIL always tried to get me to drink this red wine crap and it tasted like kerosene I thought I was weird but then the new winery around here opened and I tasted a few and I found I like the unconventional ones like the black and blue is blackberry and grape, is there a winery close to you?

    I'd say start with Barefoot if you're a beginner. Something sweet, also there's a winerie here that I went to last year OMG you havent had real wine until you check one out. So good!

    I think that about all alcohol, @MarySunshine. Well, except for the stuff that tastes like roofing tar.

    I drank a lot in my early 20's,, but I am not a fan of wines at all. I actually don't drink much at all anymore. I was a boones farm peach wine girl till they quit making it. I did buy a friend a bottle of chocolate wine I found in Branson for Christmas and she said it was the best.she ever tasted.

    @fatchickonabike so just out of curiosity, when did you ever try roofing tar???  :-))

    @KrabbyKay, I can taste the stuff in the air every time I walk past one of those roofing trucks with the tar-melter trailer thingy. Yuck! (Good thing I didn't say it tasted like goat piss or something)!

    99I love the Barefoot wines. Funny enough I found that wine through the blogger Barefoot Foodie. 

    I like the Cupcake wine, too.


    We mostly do local wines. This is wine country here - The Finger Lakes - and man is it good stuff. 

    A local apple farm has a GREAT wine line. My favorite is the SomerSet original. They also have a Red and a Rose. And it's only $9.99 a bottle.

    @Love
    My Olive Garden wine!!!!
    I drank the entire bottle at the restaurant last night. (Of course they charge you $27)
    It's impossible to find around here. But, the waiter did tell me that he knows of one store occasionally has it.

    my cheap wine go to is Boordy- only the whites or flavored wines, never the reds from them (local vineyard- MD red grapes suck)

    my "expensive" wine go to is Conundrum at $25. It is awesome.

    We also make our own wine that runs around $4 cost per bottle and a batch makes around 30 bottles (except for the last batch that is vinegar...le sigh)

    I think whiskey tastes like stinky feet, bourbon like ass and beer like piss water
