We have lots of favorites! Depends on the day and mood!

If your not sure what you like your going to have to attend the Finger Lake Wine Festival in Watkins Glen. I knew nothing and didn't like wine until i attended that 6 yrs ago and now we are hooked and go yearly. Buy a day pass and drink every kind as many times as you want. Hundred of wineries attend and are apart of it and the best part is you camp there onsite so you don't have to drive! AWESOME!! Every 2nd weekend in July. Guarantee you'll find something you like.

Good luck with the new camper and adventures to come!

We also like the Apothic wines but you need to try Apothic Inferno. It is aged in used whisky barrels. It does say for a limited time. We found it at Total Wine.

Probably not appropriate for your special toast, but I have found that the better boxed wines are great for camping. Unbreakable and the oblong shapes work well in camper cubbyholes. Also, no need to refrigerate the reds after opening because the interior bladder keeps the air out until it's empty. Some of the boxes hold the equivalent of 4 or 5 bottles yet take up a fraction of the space. There are wine snobs who wouldn't touch this stuff, but I especially like the Black Box varieties. But I do enjoy bottles for special occasions like yours.

I have disliked wine all my life. My wife is in the same boat. We have been to a couple wine-tasting parties with friend and I always thought that they all tasted like vinegar.


The wife goes to one of those "wine and painting" parties and my daughter-in-law gave her some Muscato. She created a monster as MamaBear really likes that stuff. Flash forward to last weekend were 4 of us went to a winery at our lake property. We were just wanting to "run up for a minute" and see what it's all about. We wound up staying about 4 hours. 3 of us had 4 bottles of Muscato (I like the stuff, the other hubby stuck with beer).

It was actually an enjoyable time. I could see doing it more often, but I'll never let the wine replace my beloved Rum. We have been through too much together to break it off now.

Gotta go with this one for first time red try. It's a very good blend and less than 8 bucks in my grocer. It's not necessary and probably down right sinful but I chill slightly. Yumm

We are big fans of Rodney Strong wines, but once and a while I break out of battle of Jordan winery Cabernet.

The DW and I and DS and BIL did a week end trip to check out some local wineries in TN. We found this website that listed wineries in our area and had a great weekend trying several good wines. The west TN trail has some really good wines. Some of them got their juice imported but some of them grew their own grapes muscadine and blackberries. Made it back home with a case of wine from the trip.

I keep it in the fridge for a taste from time to time. Not dry, not sour, not too sweet. For me rare in a wine.
