    Red and White. The GF likes sparkling Reds nowadays.

    There is a time and place for any colour of wine.

    Saying that, I don't drink white, as it sets my teeth on edge.

    Fave for me is a Malbec, perfect with a juicy steak...

    This.

    I'll drink white on occasion, but not sparkling.

    Rose is wine for people who don't like wine.

    None.
    I don't really drink, including rose, and on teh few occasions I do it's usually Windhoek, mead or hefty spirits.

    That said, I do have a few bottles of vintage wine and port that are collecting dust nicely in the racks. Wines are all red and ports are mostly tawney.

    Re: Red or White....or Rose?

    Red all the way. Full bodied Rioja seems to be what tickles me currently.

    Although I did have some white the other week, had a hankering for some, but rarely have it in the house. Sparkly is almost always bought in the pink variety.

    Re: Red or White....or Rose?

    While I say red and white, depending on food and whatnot, I very rarely drink nowadays. Maybe 2 or 3 times a year and when I do I like my WeiƟbier more than my wine.

    It's not like that these days Has to be an ambulance and you stay hooked up to a blood pressure monitor all the time instead.

    Re: Red or White....or Rose?

    Sadly I can no longer enjoy my beloved reds Makes me too poorly.

    Carmenere was my favourite. S American ruch red, deeper than a Cabernet.

    However, I *can* still handle fizz, so Cava, Prosecco, or if I can afford it, proper champers.

    When I popped over to see some friends in Aus I had some Durif grape - probably the first Aus red wine I've really lovef.

    Re: Red or White....or Rose?

    Depends on the mood/food really.

    If its a fairly nice day (like today seems to be around my area) Im quite partial to a glass of white, generally though I would prefer a deep flavoured, full bodied, red...

    Prosecco has to be the FINEST piece of Country Orientated Marketing since New Zealand Lamb or Danish pork....clever in terms of drawing clients in...

    but I'm a Spanish cava boy.
