Question of the week: What are you drinking?

      Question of the week: What are you drinking these days? Now that so much of your paycheck goes into groceries and filling your SUV, are you trading down in wine?

     A new Nielsen study says wine sales are still rising in 2008, but much more slowly than last year. And the biggest drop in growth is in the $15-a-bottle-and-up category.

     Are you finding some gems for less than $15? If so, share the wealth. Tell us what you’re drinking. Tell us the price, and how they taste.

So funny you should ask, because our wine class tomorrow is focusing exactly on that topic. How to pick a wine for dinner, without breaking the bank. All of our wines are under $15 except for the French Rose which clocked in at $15.25. We are exploring alternative wine varietals to the more expensive types.

Love the new blog, Fred! Looking forward to picking up lots of good info here too.

I purchased a Washington State cabernet for under $20 about three weeks ago and found it undrinkable in this weather. It was the first time I'd so disliked a wine in quite awhile.

Maybe I have to stick to pinot noir for the summer!
