Red or White?

I'm curious - which do you prefer to drink at parties or just relaxing at home?

I generally prefer reds, but I like a variety of wines so my sipping wine can change as often as the clock does.

I love reds......just can't drink them unless I want a headache (and that's excluding my husband.......jest kiddin').......I prefer a good dry Chardonnay that's really chilled......puts a fog on the outside of the glass

I'm an equal opportunity wine drinker. I drink both red and white wines and if I'm really mellow I will choose a 'pink'.

I am also an "equal opportunity wine drinker", although I will say that I probably drink more dry whites than reds year-round. I enjoy reds more in the winter when, I guess, I'm cooking more with them since they're more often an ingredient in heavier more robust dishes.

My favorite whites are chablis & pinot grigio, with an occasional white burgundy. Also, in the "sparkling" category, Spanish cavas.

Favorite reds: burgundy, merlot, & chianti - really anything dry.

The only sweet wine I enjoy occasionally would be ruby port.
