Welcome americanwine. Your site looks like it has some great selections.
Big wine lover here. I live about 30-45 minutes from most of Oregon`s wineries and my sister lives 20 minutes from Napa so visits are a necessity. Best wine/winery visitation experience I`ve ever had was at Clos Du Val
near Napa. Frequent trips to Italy always involve a lot of great wine as well.
I actually prefer wines from France, Italy, Chile, Spain, Argentina and Australia to most U.S. offerings. Not a Pinot fan at all - in fact, the vast majority of aged red wines make me VERY ill due to the combination of tannins and sulfites. Don`t like California or Oregon chardonnays at all - but love those from foreign countries. I do enjoy most white wines - especially viogniers, pinot gris/grigio and white bordeaux.
However, in Italy, give me a "tommie tippee" cup of red wine at any time of the day and I`m perfectly content with no ill effects. I do remember asking if 10:30 a.m. was too early to open a bottle while sitting by the pool at the villa we`d rented for a month.
We usually have a good 8-10 cases of wine in our house at any given time - but with all our "wine slut" (a term of endearment) friends we go through it on a very regular basis. It`s almost embarrassing when it comes to setting our bottles out to be recycled out on the curb each week!
