Never even gave that a thought, I didn't know they were that good.......Thanks

Well, if the wine advice works out as well as the Larks Head loop advice I got for my Genni,.......I bet he will.

Thanks again everyone

But really a nice, full red. Not as good as a good California (Stag, I actually like Silverado Cab a lot now, and several others)... but for 15 bucks, how do you go wrong?

Portugal, are you sure you make wines in your country? I heard they just import them from France. Sailingdog told me that. Cam backed him up and agreed. I was very surpised they would say something like that personally. Err, Hmm.
I mainly drink Oz wines, particularly the whites. Oz does some not bad Chardonnay and Pinot Gris styles. From what I've experienced they are a bit better than the Californian but it's been a few years since I was in the US. I'd always thought that the Spanish reds were good but their whites a bit iffy until last year when we tried some whites from Castille which were bloody good.

I always thought that a screw off cap added to the bouquet and elegance. She would HAVE to see the reasoning of such a device on a moving boat right? Maybe this is why I am still single.

something i can actually talk intelligently about

So, I want to get him and his wife a nice bottle of wine, but being a non drinker, I haven't the slightest clue of whats good and it's gotta be a " Thank You " kind of wine.

Yeah, you read that right, I sail and don't drink
now that everyone is done bashing the french (hey, they've always been there when they needed us)...let's talk grapes.
one of the biggest questions that needs to be asked; what is your budget for said bottle of wine?
you can get a very nice sparkling wine from california (roederer estate,anderson valley for about $20.00 that can stand w/ many french champagnes costing twice the price..or you can buy a very nice roederer cristal for about $250.00 and definitely make an impression.
unless they are oenophiles, chances are a lot of high end wines, would be a waste of money, and go unappreciated.
as this is what i do for a living (chef and purveyor of food and spirits)..i'll toss out some names. this advice, as is much you get here,is worth what you paid for it.
newton, unfiltered chardonnay: california
cakebread cellars, cabernet:california
trevor jones, unfiltered chardonnay :australia
niebaum-coppola rubicon ,cabernet/merlot/cab franc : california
papapietro perry, pinot noir: california
kim crawford , sauvignon blanc 2004:NZ
brunello di montelcino : italy
bollinger, champagne : france
santa margherita, pinot grigio: italy

this list gives you a range from about $20.00 to about $90.00.
if you can find the papapietro perry..it is extraordinary, and quite possibly my favorite from this list.
for something completely different, van gogh makes a double espresso vodka, that is outstanding..best amped up buzz out there, and smooth as silk.
hope this helps
