Dependable Vineyards

Fact: the quality of wine varies from year to year, even if it’s from the same vineyard. So many factor, human and natural, go into the quality of a bottle of wine, that it can’t completely be controlled. Which wine makers are the most dependable?

OP, your poll doesn't match your question.

by Anonymousreply 1Last Friday at 7:55 AM

It doesn’t have to, it’s a fun poll that accompanies the primary question.

Just in case you guys don’t get it, I took some creative license with spelling. Again, for fun.

What's the fizzy sweet one from Italy? Like zinfandel and champagne mixed.

I wish I knew, I look for it frequently.

I just go w/ whatever's vegan (no blood used to clarify, fish bladder, etc.).

R4 here - I meant riesling and champagne mixed.

I think it's sparkling (spumante) asti

Stupid poll. You left off a bunch of the most popular types of wine.

OP is obviously drunk on Franzia.

by Anonymousreply 9Last Friday at 8:55 AM

Pinot noir is polling the highest, but it's the worst answer. Pinot is notoriously finicky and has wide variation from year to year even in the same vineyard.

OK, I guess I have to explain some things, because no one is reading. Some possible answers could be Mondavi, Franzia, Charles Shaw, or whatever you people drink. The poll asks what TYPE of wine you prefer...separate question.

We read. You should've made two separate posts.

You’re right, I’m dealing with people who can’t handle anything that’s even slightly complex.

by Anonymousreply 13Last Friday at 11:57 AM

And we're dealing with someone who can't even make up his mind what his question is, so I'd say it's a wash.

R14 These are people who would rather talk about mothers cookware and brunch in the 80s in New York so..

[R14], be nice. Or you might wind up choking on a turkey bone while your socially distanced dinner companions simply look on and berate you for interrupting a fascinating conversation. And that would *never* do.

No Sauvignon Blanc? That’s my favorite. Crisp, acidic fresh fruit nose and mineral after taste.

R10 Pinot noir is notoriously difficult to get right. But when they do it’s heavenly.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Friday at 1:17 PM

Albariño, Chablis, Verdejo, Spätburgunder, Ribera del Duero, Nero d’Avola

by Anonymousreply 19Last Friday at 2:04 PM

OP, you are an imbecile. The names you listed in R11 aren't "vineyards," they are vintners. An example of a dependable vineyard owned by Mondavi would be To Kalon.

I just spoke with a friend who works for an exclusive wine label, and he said that it’s perfectly acceptable for me to describe it that way, considering the audience. Enjoy your Charles Shaw, [R20]

What a bunch of fucking snobs you are.!

by Anonymousreply 22Last Friday at 2:58 PM

Argyle in Oregon makes decent wine. Sokol Blosser as well well (Oregon.)

Thank you [R23] finally someone with a brain!!!

No Italians, Twaticino?

OP, I'm not familiar with Charles Shaw, but I assume it was an attempt at an insult. What a charmer! Tonight I had a 2009 Smith Haut Lafitte blanc. The other wine I drank this week was a 2010 Clos des Papes CDP.
