I only like unoaked Chardonnay really, but even then I'd rather have a sauvignon blanc or dry pinot grigio. I find I have to spend more money to get a Pinot Grigio I like, but then I like it a lot better than any other white if I do bite the bullet and spend the funds.

I love wine too, and a trip to Napa Valley this weekend sealed the deal for me. Like many people, I tend to drink whites in the summer and reds the rest of the time. For reds I tend to favor cabernet but may be switching to zinfandels after my trip!! I also really love pinot noirs, malbecs, riojas, and tempranillos.

For white it is usually pinot grigio. Dont' care for too many chardonnays. I ordered a great rose on my trip though and can't wait to have some on a hot summer day

Really? I'm a fan of the undrinkable wines myself.

Not a wine drinker. I will if the occasion is right or to be polite if offered but would much rather have a nice cold beer.

I prefer the reds as well. Malbec's are my favorite. Smooth and Sweet. White wines tend to give me a bad headache the next day.

I do think one's tastes change over the years too. There are wines I really enjoyed in my 20's that I can't drink now. White Zin was "the thing" to drink back in the day..I have a difficult time swallowing it just to be polite now...I probably like more reds than whites (when I was younger I couldn't imagine what anyone saw in red wine - too heavy, too dry, too whatever). I'm the same way with food - there are foods I enjoy now that I really didn't like when I was younger. Not sure if our tastes change or if we've just gotten better at trying/preparing certain foods.....
