Re: S/O Guilty Pleasures - Wine Addition

  • 1. Red but seeing how it's getting warmer, I find myself gravitating towards white or a blush if it's a nice blend.

    2. Red - Pinot Noir

        White - Sauvignon Blanc

    3. DH found this great new brand called "Once Upon a Vine". I also recently tried Flip Flop wine. Pretty good and it comes in the big bottles!

    4. Before I became preggo I was pretty steady at about 5 glasses a week, but now that I'm a mom my wine consumption has actually increased. :P Once I stopped nursing I feel like I've been making up for lost time - that and I'm not back at work yet, so.....

    I'm probably at 7-8 per week. Eek! I do have to cut back - it takes up so much of my Weight Watcher points!

  • Yay! lol

    1. Either, but predominantly red.

    2. I'm a Cabernet Sauvignon girl.

    3. Trader Joe's makes a brand called Charles Shaw that everyone calls "Two Buck Chuck." It's 2 dollars and change and delicious! Wal-Mart puts out a brand called Oak Leaf that is just shy of three bucks and I really like the Pinot Grigio.

    4. Um, how serious is the no judgement thing going to be lol? Every day. One or two glasses a night after DS is in bed.

    No judgment at all from me sister!! I almost busted out a bottle at noon today when Rory was being a super fuss face and not settling down for a nap.

    I have to try this "Two Buck Chuck"!! Sounds AWESOME!

  • Yay!
    1 white, but I do love a good ros on a hot summer night.
    2 Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir.
    3 I love the Big House brands. They have a white table wine that's just 5 or 6 dollars a bottle and on special at the market down the street from me all the time.
    4 probably 34 times a week. It usually correlates to how many times I was spit up on that day.

    Girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! Wink On the weekends when DH is home I'm a little more liberal and have been known to pop a cork in the early afternoon. DH always shakes his head and says, "You must start getting heart palpitations at 11:59 a.m., huh?" God, writing that out it makes me look terrible lol.

    No judgment.  Americans are so uptight about wine! ;)  There is a big ifference between a glass or two a night and hittin the sauce at the school bus stop

  • 1. Red

    2. Cabernet is my favorite. I usually like Shiraz too.

    3. Sadly, no. I used to like Yellow Tail but I find it hard to drink now. I hate when my tastes become more expensive.

    4. Almost every night. Before kids, I used to drink primarily on weekends. Now I need to wind down after the kids go to bed. For a while I had a nightly ritual where I would have a glass of wine while DD took a bath. Now that I have two I *usually* wait for them to go to bed, unless it's a really bad day.

    1. White or red? Or blush? Red

    2. Favorite varietal? Pinot noir is my favorite, but those are usually pretty expensive so I'll go for Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon.

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? AU I've only found at grocery outlet for about 3 or 4. That was surprisingly tasty. And Fox Run vineyards ? I think it's called goes for 2ish.

    4. How often do you indulge? I go back and forth between beer and wine so I'll have maybe two glasses of wine one night and then go back to beer for the next few nights.

  • Fun, fun! I'm kind of new to wine. I was always a cocktial or beer drinker. So, I'm learning. 

    1. White or red? (Or blush?) so far, white

    2. Favorite varietal? Like I said, I'm new so I lean towards sweeter. Pinot Grigio has been my favorite.

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? No, but I'm writing everyone's down! 

    4. How often do you indulge? I have at least 1 beer or glass of wine at night. We BF so sometimes I have a second after DS goes to sleep.

    1. White or red? Mostly red... but I like sweet whites too!

    2. Favorite varietal? Merlot, Malbec, Niagara, Diamond (so many!)

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? I'm a sucker for Red Cat, but also like Blackstone Merlot, and Barefoot wines are a good value!

    4. How often do you indulge? Almost nightly... I make up for the nights I skip on the nights that I open a bottle Big Smile  I'm so glad that DD goes to bed at 7pm!  Speaking of which... I'm SO ready to go get some!  Thanks for the idea!

  • 1. White or red? (Or blush?) Mostly white, although I just had Red Cat tonight (rough day). Red gives me a headache most of the time.

    2. Favorite varietal? Moscato ... LOVE

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? Barefoot Moscato and Red Cat, a sweet red wine

    4. How often do you indulge? I'll have a glass here and there during the week. But only one glass. I'm a light weight anymore.

    Edited: spelling...see? one glass is all I can handle Stick out tongue

  • 1. White or red? Or blush? Red, but I will drink a white from time to time.

    2. Favorite varietal? Pinot Noir

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? I haven't had a bad Cupcake Winery

    4. How often do you indulge? Not as often as I use to... But now that you mention it... Baby boy is in bed, I just pumped and I have a book to read. I think I will indulge now :

  • image Drea926:

    1. White or red? (Or blush?) Red or white equally, I don't do blush.

    2. Favorite varietal? White would be a sauvignon blanc. Red is too hard to choose - I like mostly Italian blends. If I had to choose,it would probably be a barbera.

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? I don't. We rarely repeat.

    4. How often do you indulge? Right now Smile. DH and I probably down 3-4 bottles a week. And yea, I still BF. I'm just getting her used to her Irish roots.

  • I love red wine or dessert wines.  My favorite is a good Argentine malbec.  I just started getting into port too.  I'm lucky because I'm right by Virginia wine country so I'll go vineyard hopping twice a year and buy a bunch.

    DH doesn't drink at all though and I hate wasting a bottle so I usually only open one if I have friends over.

    I buy the tiny individual serving wine bottles. DH doesn't drink wine and I don't drink it every night, so this is my lame solution. You can't get really good stuff, but some good cheapie brands have these.

  • 1. Red--I am really drawn to the French reds, though. 

    2. Cabernet Sauvignon

    3. I like Root 1

    4. A few glasses a week. It really depends.

    1. White or red? (Or blush?) I am a seasonal drinker here. White in the Summer and red in the winter. I actually get a gout reaction to red non-organic wines so if my feet are cold in winter the red is perfect. 

    2. Favorite varietal? Pinot Grigio and Cab Savs 

    3. Have a good cheapie brand to recommend? Dang! I don't remember the brand. All I know is it is exclusive to one wine store (on my way home from work) and I know where to pull it off the shelf. My mom usually buys Copper Moon in the box. 

    By the way, the Americans on this board are super lucky! Your cheaply bottles of wine that are ten dollars are usually closer to twenty here in Canada.  

    4. How often do you indulge? Not as often as I should. Maybe once a week or so.
