Wine. Yes, It Is Good.

I like wine. I drink a lot of it. Andrew told me that if I quit my day job and did design full time that I might have to cut back on my wine consumption. I told him that I'd figure it out and that I would still enjoy my wine, thank you very much. Either way, I thought it'd be fun to share with you all what I've been drinking lately.

I'm definitely no wine expert. Ask me about aroma, tannins, legs, or all that other crap and I'll probably look at you like you're crazy. I honestly have not a clue. However, I do know that these bottles of wine are pretty damn good and will end up in my cart every time I stock up again. The Bonterra is on the pricier end for me at $15. I try to go for anything between $8 and $12. That being said, I've had a lot of bad wines at that price, but I've also had a lot of good ones and these have definitely stood the test for tasty. 

The La Posta is the one I will always have on hand. When we stock up, I usually snag a few bottles in case we're headed to a friend's house and we need to bring a bottle of wine. The Stump Jump has become a new favorite that is reasonably priced-- not bad and nothing super extraordinary, but you can't really go wrong. It's a no-brainer. 

Do you enjoy drinking wine? I like to grab a glass to drink while I'm cooking and then enjoy a little more with my meal. Hope you're able to find these at one of your local wine sellers. And if you do, let me know what you think!


  1. I loooooove wine, especially German ones. My favorite kind is either Relax reisling, or Schlink Haus spatlese. Sauvignon blancs are good, too, and I tend to get those when I'm eating a meal. I'm not usually picky about what kind, haha.

  2. The Malbec is my ALL TIME FAVORITE! In Oregon we have a pretty expansive wine country & TONS of local vineyards to visit & taste wines :) It's pretty much the best thing to do in the summer (or any time of year actually) :)

  3. I LOOOVE LOVE WINE. I'm a wino. I also have a bottle around the house. I prefer reds over whites but I'll drink white if thats all I have. I really have no palette for wine and I get annoyed with people who are uppity about that. I know that I prefer dryer wines over sweet ones.

  4. LOVE wine! I gravitate toward Barefoot Pinot Noir but have been craving a good white with the weather starting to change. I am not that picky either. If I am in the mood to try something new I usually go by what bottle is the prettiest. While I have had some crappy wine playing that game, I have also found some good ones. Barefoot is always a safe bet though (especially if I am in a hurry).

  5. I love wine a little too much. But then again, I grew up in Sonoma, wine country so I think that makes it legit, right?

  6. Forget the wine snobs- if you like it, it's good. If we all liked the same wine, there'd be none of it left! I'm a fan of Trader Joe's for my inexpensive-wines-I've-never-heard-of-and-will-love fix. Lately, I'm enamored of 14 Hands, Layered Cake, and Liberte.
