Oh wow, I would have been a very friendly neighbor when you had that collection. I prefer Cabs also along with Reds from Spain and Pinot Grigio…..don’t like sparkling , zins , Chardonnay or anything sweet. Have you tried the non alcoholic wine or is that off limits too? Yeah I would miss wine with dinner and it’s a very social drink.

@imallears I did buy a bottle of non-alcoholic once at the holidays and I just decided it wasn't worth the bother over just drinking water!

I never cared for Pinot Grigio, too much like water, but there are some good zins I think. I also do not like sweet wines, except for some really nice dessert wines like Hungarian Tokaji Aszu. If you haven't tried it you should and make sure you get one with at least 5 Puttonyos. I was introduced to it when I was a manager at the beautiful Inn in my town, The Bedford Village Inn. It has one of the best wine lists in NH. The Spanish reds were my favorite reds. The one I used to purchase was from a winery that had two versions. I would watch the NH state liquor ads and when the better one went on sale I would always grab a few bottles.

I really miss the whole wine culture and going to wine country. Our next trip to Italy was going to include Tuscany but that's not to be.

@artist01 Although I don't care for pinot grigio now, it was really my introduction back to drinking wine. I gave up alcohol when I was pregnant and never resumed until the kids were out of the house. As I used to say, I couldn't afford to be mellow with them around. One white I loved was the little known Italian Arneis. It's a difficult grape to grow though so it can be difficult to find. If you see it on a restaurant menu give it a try.
