Is your favorite wine FOREIGN or DOMESTIC? What is it?

Bignuf Bignuf
What is your favorite WINE? Do you buy foreign or domestic wine?

We toured the California wine country, and although we don't drink much, we enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. We also discovered a wine we thought was pretty amazing....

A sweet red, desert wine called Moscato D'Amable.

However, having said that to a friend, who was going to Spain and Italy, he brought us back a bottle of the same wine from Italy...and WOW...it was really (sorry California), no contest. MUCH smoother, much more refined.

It was called Amable Dose Italo (Mascato D'Asnti Sumante). If you like a sweet wine, this stuff is awesome. Served it with cake, cheese and fruit to friends on Halloween night and everyone loved it.

So...is YOUR favorite wine FOREIGN or DOMESTIC and what is it? Please share!!!

Personally I am a fan of both. I enjoy the differences each region (foreign or domestic) has to offer. I have even enjoyed some of the local wines as they have a very unique taste. If you haven't opened yourself up to your local winery's, I highly recommend it. A great way to spend a Saturday and although they are not a "Napa" or "Bordeaux", you would be surprised what you find.

I could never tell the difference, but as long as it tastes good then I don't care where It came from.

Yellowtail makes a chardonnay that is so buttery it feels like your tongue is going to slide out of your mouth and onto the floor and I really like that. It's Australian.

I really like the local wines made from fruit here. South Dakota wild plum wine is amazing! It smells like bazooka bubble gum.

I'd like to say that I'm fancy enough to know the difference, but I'm just not. But I only drink red, and preferably with no added sulfates.

I'm not a wine snob, but I generally tend to get domestic wine- local, even. I live in Oregon and while I'm not a localvore, when I can choose between something made a stone's throw from me and three thousand miles, I go for the stone's throw.

I have never tried it. I will now.

THANK YOU!!!

We are actually "into" gourmet Hot Chocolate...but still trying to taste a few wines, since so many of our friends ARE into wine and this way, when we host parties, we can make them all happy and not feel like we have NO clue!!!

I've never really enjoyed wine. I can't stand the taste of the ones I have tried so I gave up on it.
