-Frey Wine (Cabernet and “Natural Red”) “Whenever people come over and have this [organic] wine, they are in super wine heaven.” — Sheila

Kendall-Jackson (Cab & Malbec) and Coppola (Claret & Zin) “I also take chances on wine at Wine.Woot…amazing bottles delivered at cheap prices” —Eddie

-Reader Katie seems to know her wine!

Bonny Doon Pacific Rim Dry Riesling – “a go to for a night on the couch. Very refreshing. I think around $12 or so.” 

Iron Horse Cuveé – I don’t know the price, but I think it was $68 @ 
the restaurant I was at, and the typical markup is 300%. A 
fantastic bottle, A sauvignon blanc-viongnier blend. Yummy!” 

I love Pinot Noir: Sass vineyards, Wintess TreeRobert Sinsky are great bottles.

Tandem “Peloton” –  ”a blend out of California and is fantastic. It’s a perfect wine.” 

Trimbach Gewürztraminer – “is a good, less expensive, one to try.”

Some others: 
Austin Hope Roussanne (central coast) 
Gruner Vetliner – ”I’ve never come across one I didn’t like” 
L’ecole #41 Semillion (Columbia Valley, WA) 
Macon Lugny “les charmes” (Burgundy) – very good all around solid white. 
J.M. Boillot Montagny 1er cru, Burgundy. I love this wine. Can’t go 
wrong here. 

Ravenswood Zinfandel or 7 Deadly Zins — Amanda

Chateau St Michelle Riesling and Dr Frank Konstantin Dry Reisling – “For cleaner more citrusy flavors” — Amanda

Here are mine!

  • Barefoot anything (obviously)
  • La Crema Chardonnay– it’s the best affordable chardonay I know
  • La Crema Pinot Noir – More medium bodied than most pinots with a good amount of fruit.  Goes amazing with steaming hot chocolate cake (Megan can attest to that)
  • Santa Margherita Pinot Girigio – light and very crisp for a hot summer day
  • Zaca Mesa Chardonnay – one of my favorite steals from Santa Ynez region 
  • Yalumba Viogner – a light wine from Down Under (@Whole Foods)
  • I love trying new pouilly fuisses and pouilly fumes for a change from Chardonnay

I know I’m forgetting a few…
