I joined, but I am not what I'd consider an aficionado!

I do however strongly recommend this movie on the subject:
John Cleese's Wine for the Confused
2004NR92 minutes
Wine snobs, beware: Monty Python's witty John Cleese aims to educate the masses with this enlightening, snoot-free wine guide.

His vintner's tour includes lessons in wine vocabulary and identifying subtle flavors. Not a fan of snobbery in the least, Cleese also reveals how to cork up condescending sommeliers.

I'm no afico-whats-ma call-it, but I like what I like, Penfolds Koonunga hill (shiraz), Hardy's Butchers gold (shiraz sangiovese) and Peter Lehmann Barossa (semillon). Plus a whole lot of others!

An easy to drink white wine that we like is from Sutter Home and is called Moscato. We bought some Chilean wine to try and will report on it once we've given it a try.
