Wine Suggestions?

    I need some advice, recommendations.

    I am wondering if people on these boards can suggest to me favourite types of wine or what wine they would recommend.

    I have to give some as presents and also have a wine and cheese party taking place at my place in the next month for family and a couple of really close friends coming from overseas.

    Thanks for the suggestions in advance.

    Seriously, though, I tried this kind at a wine tasting and really liked it. I personally don't like white wine at all, but I do like red wine as long as it doesn't have too harsh of a kick at the end.

    Here is a short summary about this wine, actually the label:

    Very good wine.

    It's kinda an open ended question.

    I'd suggest you go to your local liquor store, find someone who knows something about wine, tell them what kind of cheeses you're serving and get some recommendations.

    You'll want a selection of white, red and maybe a rose

    Seriously, I don't drink much wine but my wife like Rieslings.

    A very good, inexpensive wine in my opinion is the Black Swan merlot/shiraz mix (the purple label). Very good stuff, and usually only $10-11 for a 1.5 liter.

    Asolutely love it, shock!

    For a little less money, I'm also a big fan of the Franncis Ford Coppola pinot grigio.

    Laugh all you want, but Trader Joe's "three buck chuck" has always gone down real easy. It's their Charles Shaw line of wines. The cabernet was only ok, but the chardonnay is delightful. And it's only around three bucks a bottle.

    Am drinking a Bogle Merlot now and it's OK... Usually drink Beaujolais Villages by Louis Jadot or any of the red wines from Penfolds.

    I stay away from Reisling only because I find it too sweet.

    Went to Costco today and stocked up with several bottles of wine.

    Since I really started getting into wine, I figured I'd eschew an actual wine journal (though I have one) and just made a new site on Blogger.

    I focus mainly on whites, since I've yet to have a red I like and the reds give migraines to my wife.

    At any rate, my top five of an admittedly limited selection:

    Joseph Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Chardonnay ($15 a bottle and probably the best wine I've ever had)
    Picket Fence Chardonnay
    Big Fire Pinot Gris
    Washington Hills Riesling (just had that tonight)
    Trinity Pinot Gris

    And, as a bonus: A To Z Pinot Grigio.
