    Any wine lovers out there?

    Just a thought after a few glasses tonight, but any other wine lovers out there? Can't say it was something I enjoyed before meeting my now wife, but there's nothing better than a glass or two (or more!) of a really good wine.

    Favourite is perhaps red, grenache shiraz being one that sticks in memory. Never spent more than £10 from a 'shop' bottle, and that (which I forget the grape) was outstanding - generally £5 or so is the best balance of 'nice' vs 'price', though £10 upwards seems to show how good wines are more expensive!

    I do like a nice white from time to time. Don't drink it as often as you might think tho, considering there's an Oddbins next door... literally next door!!

    I worked in the wine business for 6yrs and i got to try some really good stuff but it does mean im very fussy about what i drink, i prefer red but do drink white with appropriate food.

    Dont get me started on champers i love all the expensive stuff £40+ but only really like Veuve or Hiedsiecks out of the regular stuff

    I'm a total sucker for wine, I love to drink any wine with some good food, usually white or rose. But it gives the worst hangovers if consumed excessively!

    We have quite a few bottles of wine here gathering a good dusting, but as Andy says, we dont drink much of it.

    I do like a good white, but Red wine I find to be rather too dry for my pallet (and also gives me a bitch of a hangover)

    I enjoy a nice red but I've got a bottle of white for tonight chilling as we speak.

    I try not to drink it too often as I normally forget the night after a few bottles.
