I am brewing both beer and wine. Currently I can get a decent kit of wine for about $75, make 6 gallons, pull 1 gal. off and make about 8 pints of port and the wine still makes about 24 bottles. I currently have a Chateauneuf du pape in secondary and ready to bottle.

I do love beer, don't get me wrong, and I really enjoy picking it apart just as I do a good wine, they just give me two very different kind of buzzes That and I can either drink 2 bottles of wine and call it a decent evening, or I put back over a 6-pack and pee all night lol. (I don't do this too commonly but enough to know I can do it without problems).

I think I will just settle with I love alcohol.

An Oregon Pinot Noir is my favorite...

I'm also a sucker for Chianti.

Ha, I was going to say the same thing.

Really though I don't drink much wine and when I do I can only drink about a glass. I haven't figured out what I like best but it seems I like the dry white wines.

I like Malbec, Cabernet Savignon, Pinot Grigio, and Savignon Blanc in most cases.

if i had to pick one, its probably pinot grigio.

of course, I did spend the better part of one day, once, at a winery drinking cabernet franc, merlot, and blends and enjoyed each and every sip. just me the girlfriend and the master wine chief extraordinaire
