    Don't think we had a thread dedicated to vino. So here it is!

    I am a slave to marketing, which is why I buy wine like this:

    Come in my belly! Hue...
    Yes, it tastes really awful.

    I've had fat bastard before!!! Get the cabernet sauvignon next time scrub, way better. If there's any bottle I'm crazy about at the moment it would be painted turtle cab sav.

    Most of the wine I've ever drunk is homemade by a relative. At least there's one pro in being a Romanian.

    Wine isn't really a thing here unless you're a carpetbagger or painfully bourgeoisie.

    I'll stick with my Moonshine and Whiskey.

    'Merica.

    I was surprised the first time I heard wine was made locally, didn't think my home state had the climate for grapes. I was wrong!

    Linganore, wine made Maryland-style. I've always found California wines to be fuggin caustic, better for cleaning submarines than drinking, but this stuff I really like.

    My favorite this summer is Skipjack, a sweet white made from Cayuga. Tastes great with meat.

    Prices run between 10 to 20 per, depending on the type. I'd say they're all worth a try.

    Also, dat triangle logo. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED XDDD!!1!1

    Fuckin yanks taking after the French....I can't tell shit about that wine without the variety on the label...WHAT VARIETY IS IT, VANDRE?!














    P.s if its sweet white it could be anything from Riesling or Muscat to Sémillon or Gewürztraminer.

    I too am a slave to marketing. Maybe I just love you 'straylians so much.






    Also can't actually legally buy liquor so I'll take whatever you've got.

    lololol. Yeah, a lot of the wines here are derivations/experiments of parent varieties. Far as I can tell Skipjack is a sweet Riesling with peach tones. Most of Linganore's sweet whites seem to be Rieslings or Viogniers, but their Traminette's won some awards.

    found this gem of a box, it serves three 5oz glasses and is absolutely spectacular, best amount of wine and wonderful taste. Was shocked when I skeptically tried.

    I like Chianti, namely Gaetano d'Aquino.
