Wine Down Wednesday

Wine Down Wednesday

I'm no wine expert but I do know if I like what I am tasting. I do enjoy drinking wine regularly and have my favorites. 

There are so many great wines out there. Pricey and those that are really affordable and great tasting. My favorite regions are California, Chile, and Australia/New Zealand. But I have found delicious tasting wines from other world regions. 

I will be the first to tell you what I like to as to the best every day drinking wines. I do love to splurge with a special bottle on occasion. 

I'm always asked by friends what I recommend or they ask me what wine should I buy. It shouldn't be rocket science. And it isn't . So I decided to designate some of my Wednesday posts to wines and beers. I love to share new finds with my family and friends. 

You can find great wines at great prices at your local wine store or grocery. I have discovered Amazon is a goldmine for good wines shipped straight to your door.

I always say - try it all. Like it? Drink it!
