    Can't give you any particular names but I'm a fan of South African Reds.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    Siglo Saco - Its a rioja, the one that comes in a scak. They're currently doing 3 for 2 at Threshers and this is the only place I can find it.

    Faustino No. 1 - Again a red, can only find it in some Asda's, bout £11 a bottle.....

    Faustino Rioja (and Rioja's generally) certainly goes down well in terms of reds.

    Other reds im a big fan of - La Chasse Du Pape, Chateauneuf du Pape, Fitou and Pinotage.

    Not so much a fan of whites, but would recommend Pinot Grigio, Chablis or Chardonnay if you fancy something easy going. Vouvray is nice if you have a sweettooth!

    Asda's own rose....
    Its called Californian White Zifandel, wine of the year 2007.
    Its normally about 4 quid a bottle and last week it was on offer for less than 3 notes. It took me a while to find this as imo its the same stuff that is sold in 'Ask' restaurant for 17 quid a bottle.

    Henschke Vinyards 'Hill of Grace'. About £300-400 a bottle depending on the year and when you buy it.


    It is a shiraz in case you were wondering.
    I prefer them to the Penfolds Grange in terms of taste and they are usually cheaper, although hard to get hold of over here.
    My dad sends me a couple each year from Oz.

    My favourite, whether red or white is Rawnsley Estate. I never used to drink white but tried this and was hooked.

    For red I love their Shiraz Viognier and for white, their Semillon Chardonnay

    It's about a tenner a bottle at tesco but they often do them both at half price, which is when I stock up.

    Do you actually want a wine that tastes like wine or something terribly flavoured that it nothing more than flavour grape juice which they sell in most supermarkets?

    Best bet is to find a decent local wine merchant, tell them your budget (it doesnt have to be expensive), what your likely to be eating and let them do the work.

    Mate look no further than Tesco!  They do a 'Finest' chilena white which me and the missus think is definately one of the best we've had.

    Tesco Finest Tapiwey Vineyard is the label and they do a sauvignon and a chardonnay.  The sauvignon is the best in my opinion.

    They are usually £9.99 a bottle but we only bought them as they've been on sale for £3.99 in the recent past.

    Give it a try - You won't regret it.  While your there, pick me up a bottle!!

    :)

    I think you'll find large waitrose stores have an excellent range of well selected wines

    perhaps asda etc is not that great, but visit the better supermarkets and you can find some good quaility tipple

    I'm enjoying a bottle of Chateau Lamothe Bergeron 1999 at the moment, one of the nicest wines I've had in a long time.
