I spend around 15$
but sometimes I spend a little more, hoping to get lucky,
I don't know a lot about wine.
I never buy expensive wine.

I usually spend $10-20 on "drinking" wine. A few of my favorites are in the sub $15 range.
I have been known to plunk down over $100 on the occasional bottle of champagne or "special" wine. Shit, why not. Scotch and absinthe aren't cheap either.
for some people, there's money in absinthe. And for some, there's only absinthe in absinthe.

For under $7, I like these cherry wines from Chateau Grand Traverse Winery.

Sadly, I have to have folks bring it to me from Michigan. I can't buy it here. :ohsnap:

I'd usually plunk down $30-$80 for a bottle of good wine which probably explains why I haven't gone near the stuff in years, except for an occasional glass of house blecch in restaurants.

I was under the assumption that this was a question of how much we spend on retail wine... not at a restaurant.

I rarely drink wine at bars. The selection is either too shitty, or when adequate, usually too expensive.
I'm also a glassware snob. If I see shitty wine glasses I'm not ordering wine (no matter how nice or moderately priced it is). Conversely, if I see great glassware I'm more likely to indulge in sub par wine... or a higher priced bottle.

Last night I picked up a bottle of Chappellet Napa Cab. Sauv, ($45),Sebastiani Cab. Sauv ($18), and a bottle of Mossy Oak Wild Game blend ($4.99- the one with the deer on it).

The Sebastiani fell victim to my thirst as soon as I walked in the door. By the end of that I was too intoxicated for the Chappellet, and not nearly intoxicated enough for the Mossy Oak. I'll save that one for the bimbos.

A bottle of wine, on an empty stomach, is enough to put me far enough into a buzz that I wouldn't want to waste a really "good" bottle of wine on getting more drunkerer.

Instead, I had a few beers and then Kubler 53%.

I rarely buy wine any more since the wife quit drinking (meds) and I don't particularly enjoy more than one glass. About the only wine I drink is Oleroso and I get it from the cask in the back room. I refill it with cheap Taylor dry Sherry for $8.95 a 1.75L bottle. What comes out is unrecognizable as Taylor sherry.

The one on the left is Taylor before going in the cask. The one on the right came out of the cask.

I used to buy $10-$20 range wines at the local shop wehre they would let me know if a better Austrailan or California wine was on sale. Mostly any more I drink beer.

SNAKE VODKA 25CL

Edible’s snake vodka contains a farm raised wolf snake, which has been specially bred for us in China. We infuse the vodka with the snake for three months, which then imparts a unusual flavour into the vodka, which is quite an acquired taste.

Alcohol infused with a snake is said to be an aphrodisiac, particularly for men and it is also supposed to contain many health properties.

Our snake vodka is best served straight from the freezer, neat, but it is also pleasant with a simple mixer.

* whilst the snake is perfectly fine to eat, we do not recommend it, due to the fact it contains many tiny bones *

This is one of my more special crates. 6 bottle crate and I would estimate the value to be around $1500-2k. It contains 1 1991 Heitz Martha's Vineyard, 2 1994 Far Niente Cabs, and 1 each of 1993, 1994, and 1995 Far Niente Merlots. Many wine geeks are unaware that Far Niente merlot even exist as it was so limited and so allocated. It was supposed to be on-premise only.

This is a Riedel The Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru. It retails for about $100. I only use it when drinking a Bordeaux that out-prices it. It is really big and will actually hold an entire 75o ml bottle.

That's a waste if you're only using that glass for wine that outprices it, Sucks.
The fun of those glasses is that they can make a $5 bottle taste like a $30 bottle.

Unless you're a complete klutz, break it out more often.

I also hope you've never actually emptied an entire bottle into the glass.
Kinda defeats the purpose.
There's just too much time to kill between all my mistakes.

I went to a sit down wine tasting, and one of the frogs from Chateau Beaucastle was there with a vertical tasting of thier Chateauneuf du Pape. '96 to '04. I'll say this. That was some damn good wine.

Tastings are usually the only chance I get to indulge fine (ie $$) wines, and sit downs are always spectacular.

He started giving me the hairy eyeball around my 4th round of the '96.

Hey Dink, a friend of mine found some wine in the basement of an old house and he asked me if they are worth anything.
He has 2 bottles of Chateau Lynch, 1970 Bags, Grand Cru Classe , Pauillac Medoc.
And 2 bottles of Chateau Couronne Cru Exceptional 1970 Pauillac Red Bordeaux.
And 1 bottle of Grand Cru D Chateau Latour 1970 red wine.
He opened the other bottle of this and said it tasted great.
Does anyone know anything about them, are they worth anything?

Chateau Latour 1970 1ere Grand Cru Classe Paulliac
Ref: 2412 From the very good 1970 vintage and scoring 98/100 Parker points, this red wine from one of the world's greatest vineyards is "One of the top two or three wines of the vintage (Petrus and Trotanoy are noteworthy rivals), this young, magnificent Latour is still 5-10 years away from full maturity. The opaque garnet color is followed by a huge, emerging nose of black fruits, truffles, walnuts, and subtle tobacco/Graves-like scents. Full-bodied, fabulously concentrated and intense, with a sweet inner-core of fruit (a rarity in most 1970 Medocs), and high but well-integrated tannin, this enormously endowed, massive Latour should hit its prime by the end of the century and last for 2-3 decades thereafter. This is will be the longest-lived and potentially most classic wine of the vintage. Cream always comes to the top." Drink now - 2030. A stunning gift.

This vintage wine is shipped in a deluxe silk lined hinged presentation box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine stopper) [worth £14.99] at no extra cost.

Price: £349.99

Thanks G, I'm sure he'll be glad to know he drank the best one and gave the other away. Is the Chateau Couronne Bordeaux any good?

I sometimes have an issue with spending money on wine because I get it for free from work. If I were going to go buy my own I probably wouldn't spend more than $25 simply because I have car payments that are more important.

Quite nice with delicate tannins. Personally, from that region I would recommend Chateau Latour premier grand cru 1986, if quite a cheap investment is Bordeaux Baron de Lestac AOC 2000.
