White or Red - what's your favorite?

Hi new CK Wine Lover friends,

What's your grape of choice? I'm a white wine drinker, avoiding red due to migraine concerns. My favorites are chardonnays, though I've been drinking pinot griegio lately since its lighter it seems more summery.

How about you?

I love the red. yum. :-) just have to save enough calories in the day to have a glass or two.

If you like Pinot Grigo, you might like to try Gewurztraminer. I think that it is more complex than Sauvignon Blanc. The really good ones come from France and Germany but California is starting to put some out on the market. The 2008 Fetzer is very affordable and while not a classic, it is drinkable....a good little back porch wine.

I'm new to CK social networking and am trying this out for the first time. I am assuming that a thread is a "new" comment and if you click on a "thread" you can respond to that specific topic.

Well, end of week one with CK. I am on a two year program as I am trying to get in shape for life but the deadline is for a trip to Portugal to explore Port Houses along the Douro.

I love both. My favorite white is Sauvignon Blanc. My favorite red is either Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. :tongue10: :drunk:
