Drinking alcohol has never been my thing either, but I love cooking with many different varieties.

Not really. Not much for any alcohol in general. If I have any wine, it’s always red. Prosecco is okay also. And I don’t think I’ve ever finished a full glass of anything. Meh. 🤷🏻‍♀️

the only time I have wine is when it go out. Have it with ice and a glass of ice on the side. That’s it for me. PS sometimes I ask for another glass of ice.

I like mostly white, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.  There are a few wineries near me (southeastern PA) and one in particular is very good.

 

I was fortunate to be able to go on a few wine tours in Italy & France. It was beautiful and so much fun!

 

When my nephew got married two summers ago it was at a winery in Sonoma and of course over the 5 days we were there with extended family we did some wine tours....  I love going on wine tours!

Yes, I do like white wine, red wine gives me a headache. We have many nice wineries in the state and I love the Door County wines.

I don't like wine just to drink but use it in my cooking. I would never drink wine to drink it---not understanding the whole wine thing anyway. would rather have an ice cold beer.

I too, love Cabernet and Pinot Noir wines.  In my research on wines, they are the best for your heart, so my husband and I enjoy one almost every night.  We buy the box, it lasts a lot longer and just as good.  I went to a wine tasting event and was told box wines are just as good.  Much cheaper too.
