I love beer, but I like wine even more. I am a sucker for a good bottle of wine. Here's my absolute favorite wine. It tastes absolutely great and at only $10.00 a bottle, you simply can't beat it.

Interesting label. I have seen it at Publix but have never tried it.

Publix has all kinds of wines from Australia and other countries. I am pretty sure I have seen it there. I do recognize the label, unless I am confusing it with another brand.

Right now, I just opened a bottle of Casillero Del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc. Not a big fan of white wine but I wanted to try it.

Can't remember when the last time I drank wine :s
The only alcoholic drink that I enjoy that's made of grape, is champagne.

Not sure I have a favorite.

I like most any sweet-tasting red wine.

Sweet Wine: Port Wine, just amazing.

Table Wine: Home made wine in my mother's region (Pombal, Portugal), from old casts. Really warm a nice wine, especially with a nice cheese...damnnn...

I'm much more of a beer guy aswell, but the mrs and I like to check out wineries when we travel. When we were in the Seattle area a couple years ago, we checked out Chateau Ste Michelle, which is a really beautiful winery.

Their Ethos Reserve line is insanely good, especially the Late Harvest Chenin Blanc:

Also for people that like sweet wines, try an Ice Wine from a winery located in a climate with cold winters. It's like nothing you've ever tasted before. They run about $50 for the half-bottle, but trust me, it's worth it. :)
