    I'm far from a wine connoisseur as I have a taste for the sweet wines vs. the dry stuff most seasoned wine drinkers like.

    But I've found one that tastes like the real muscadine stuff I grew up trying to ferment from homemade grape juice.

    It's called Hatteras Red and it's made by Dublin. It's right up there with Boone's Farm I tell ya. ;)
    If you like sweet, really grape tasting wines, try it.

    You should try that stuff the Jews drink at passover. Manneshevitz or something like that. Tastes just like welch's.

    I went to a barmitzavah once, one of the jews handed me a glass of the manneschevitz and said "this is why Jews don't become alcholics" and he was RIGHT.
    I'm not a conniossure either but I do know wine shouldn't taste like grape juice.
    I didn't care for the movie "Sideways" but it made me want to run to some wine place and drink glasses of different kinds of wine.

    try the Thunderbird Select on sale for 2.19 this week only at Wilco. "Boochie" down by the corner says its the best (um, he also wants to know if you've got a dollar).

    plu,
    there are a lot of good sweet and semi-sweet wines (red, white, blush) made at the wineries along the Finger Lakes. Inexpensive but good tasting. A real wine lover probably wouldn't care much for it. Some of it's sold down you're way. Or, you could get your ass up here and tour the wineries yourself.

    I was surprised the first time I tasted wine from NY that it was so good.
    I'm from CA so I was a SNOB and thought only Napa could produce good wines.

    I have heard of this area, the Yadkin Valley, compared to the Watkins Glen area. I'm guessing it's just the locals thumping their chests, but I've had wine from a couple places down here and it is pretty good...
