The Wine Rack

Here is where you will find the wines that I like to drink and sometimes cook with, but mostly drink.  Before you read through my list, here are my preferences for wine: 
  • I like red wine, sometimes. 
  • I do not prefer wine that tastes like an oak tree. 
  • I like white and fruit wines. 
  • On the scale of sweetness, I prefer a 1 - 3 (0 being very dry).
I will try to add to this every time I find something new.  I also encourage you to add to my list here if you think there is something I would like to try.  The links provided are for more information on the wines, and may give you an idea of where they can be purchased.  The brands posted are strictly based on my opinions as a wine consumer :) 

  • Funf Riesling - "The fun starts at five" or noon, whatever.  This wine is a little sweeter than most Rieslings, but has fast become one of my favs.  Learn more here.
  • Pelee Islands Gewurztraminer - This is my go-to wine.  Perfect for any occasion.  Learn more here
