Many moons ago when I was hitting the bar scene, I loved a cold glass of Chablis. Since, Chablis seems to have given way to Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and some other whites that I don't particularly like. Right now, I drink Cabernet Sauvignon almost exclusively.

Definitely red. :D
And I am not ashamed to say that I will grab a bottle of 2 Buck Chuck at Trader Joe's any day.
Anyone else like that stuff? :)

Definitely white because I'm allergic to red wine. If I drink more than one glass of red, I get an asthma attack.

Hey Mouse (or anyone else),
would you know of any good sweet reds or whites that Trader Joe's sells?

I like both - but prefer reds.

I stick mostly to French and Aussie wines - but also like some Spanish, Italian and Portugese wines, as well as new world wines from South American countries like Chile and Argentina. I don't drink much Californian wines.

i'm red all the way. i buy mostly californian and aussie. i like an occasional white zin once in a while, but for some reason while red wine hits me like a ton o' bricks, i can drink white zin like water. lower alcohol content maybe?

most definately red. it was like that with most of the people in my wine-tasting class. even the prof. openly showed his disdain for most of the white wines.
i love Valpolicella. it's dry, not too tannic, and doesn't cost too much.

Unfortunately, a lot of people mistakenly interperate white wine drinkers as "lightweights". Most white wine is very underrated in terms of drinkability as a food wine, because the misconception is that "bigger is better" so you see a lot of people immediately reaching for that big California Caberbet or Merlot. If they do choose a white wine, it's almost always a Chardonnay which is probably the worst choice, unless you're eating a plate full of strong-flavored cheeses. If I absolutely had to choose, then I would choose red only because I could not live without Pinot Noir, Bordeaux, Super Tuscans, or Syrah. But I would flinch everytime I see someone ordering an Alsace, Pinot Gri(s)gio, or Riesling which I know would perfectly compliment an abundance of the seafood and vegetable dishes and flavors that I like.
