We have quite a few favourite wines. First though if you like sweeter wine try a white zinfendel. Its sweeter and is a rose. Very nice. 

 

We love cab blends merlot or Sauv. Doesn't matter straight merlot but one grape that was thought extinct due to it being ruined in Europe from mold is not grown exclusively in Chili. That is the Carmenere grape. 

 

We like a few from California mostly reds but we went to a few wineries in the Niagara Region of Ontario and actually bought into a wine club at 13th st winery in St Catherines Ontario. They have a really awesome chardonnay that is very dry. We fell in love with it. Their Reds are incredible. We get 6 bottles delivered every 3 months to our home. Nice to have that because you can build up a small collection.

I recently recorded and watched a documentary moderated by the actor and vintner, Sam Neill. It's called Great Innovation..The Rise of Australian Wine.

 

It mentioned that Australia is now the 5th largest exporter of wine on earth.

 

They talked a lot about Penfold's and their Grange Hermitage wine.

 

This fact surprised me, that 98% of Australian wine is screw-capped. Shows what a change in thinking about corked wine..

 

It's on National Geographic if anyone is interested in looking it up...It was quite interesting.

The local wineries in Napa are wondering what affect the smoke from the fires last year and this year will have on the grapes and if it will affect the taste of the wine. I might have to do my own research. 

I think for sure the prices will rise..

Richard, it's funny you mentioned this. We had to return our last 2 bottles of Frey white wine. The first bottle "smoked" as we took out the cork. The seconed "smoked" the second time we took the cork out!!😦
