    I prefer the Pisano jug by Carlo Rossi. I always have some around for cooking,

    some stews require several cups.

    C'mon, Jack is a Bears fan... Everybody knows they like the wine that comes in a box with a spigot... Sheeeesh...

    I hope he isn't drinking wine when he opens your post... Might come out the poor guys nostrils....

    Hobos like the box wine best, after you drink it all you can pull out the plastic bladder, blow it up like a balloon then use it for a pillow.

    Yes, I am a wine nut. My preference is for good quality distressed wines I can buy cheap. Just lik guns. Last night I drank a bottle of "Red Guitar" I paid about $6 a bottle and it had a very nice berry bite. Not at all smooth like a merlot. I am very lucky to have a small bu bustling ethnic liquor store here in St Paul named Morellis. I buy wines by the case and make a trip a month. I'll have to look at my wine cabinet and see what I can recommend. BTW, your personal doctor tells you not to drink, but my doc says a bottle of red wine a day is "no problem"

    Funny stuff Wild Bill.

    Bill,

    Not sure yet, been a very slow winter, but that will change in the spring.

    Hope all is well in God's country.

    Obviously, this is my home wine cabinet. It is in my cold (assed) garage. But the cabinet is heated in the vinter and A/C in the summer. Not particularly efficient but the wine does stay somewhat close to optimum of 55 degrees. Now it is about that, but summer it can be up to 65-70 degrees or so. It is insulated and has one little duct off an interior house duct that flows thru a rubber hose to the cabinet. It has a shut off valve too. But I only have a dozen or so bottles I am concerned about as the rest is just inexpensive stuff I get at Morellis.

    Jack, How do you keep that many in stock?? I seem to have an evaporation issue.

    Jack,

    I am not much of a drinker, but find that if I drink enough wine, beer, or booze my truck will not stay in the right lane and weaves all over the place, what do you think is the matter with the truck ..? Do you think I need to have the front end looked at and checked out ..? Could a tire out of balance do that .,.? WPT ... (YAC) ...
