    Default Wine drinkers...

    I'm a wine/champagne snob! I'm pretty fussy and over the years know what I like, I get tons of alcohol given to me as presents from clients , I give away the ones I don't like but luckily my staff all know what I like so when a client asks what to buy me they say oh i know she likes Verve or Mumm etc ! But I also only buy clients/friends what I would drink myself!

    Either. So long as the variety is right I'm happy. I prefer pinot and shiraz and don't drink white at all.

    For me, with Wine, you do get what you pay for, but at the same time, it doesn't need to be a $50 bottle of wine to be good.

    I like to support the local wineries around me (there's a vineyard just down the road!), and find that buying from the cellar door is often cheaper than a bottle shop, so I can get a really nice bottle for usually $25 and under

    i love wine and used to work cellar door.
    the only important thing about wine is that whoever drinking it enjoys it - not the cost, year, vineyard.

    i've had $3000 bottles of wine, and $5 bottles of wine. personally i buy $20 bottles - a nice compromise imo!

    and at the end of the day it's the thought that counts. if they open it and don't like it they can always use it to cook with!

    btw i love the idea of saving the labels in a scrapbook!

    I'd be more concerned about the region than the price

    I agree you don't need to buy an expensive bottle of wine for it to be nice. I really enjoy a glass of giesen which from Dan's is about $12-$15 dollars. I also like to try new ones from the regions that I know make good wines. (I am so hanging for xmas/new year to enjoy a glass, think maybe expressing for bubba those days before!)

    As long as it was a GOOD wine, I would be happy. Price is irrelevant. You can get good inexpensive wine and bad expensive wine.

    Either would be appreciated, particularly if it was from somebody who knew a lot about wine, as I would assume it was good quality and carefully selected.
