Vernacular List No. 1

people-crowd-grayscale-andy-warhol-incaseA list of all the suggestions I have been given via fellow bloggers, thus far. Some are from the experts and some are from humans. Take a gander. 

Vernacular: adj.: using a language or native language rather than a literary, cultured, or foreign language.

1. 2 Litre De Bortoli casks (not sure what that is–but the recommendation is to “decant it first”) That just means air it out a bit, people.  (Listerlegs)

2. Domain Boudau, Le Clos 2009 (Cotes du Roussillon, France)

3. Damalisco Crianza 2008 (Toro, Spain)

4. The Culprit, 2010 (Sonoma)

5. Washington State Cabs. Any of them. (the wine serf)

6. Cono Sur wine from Chile

7. Yalumba whites from Australia (kdrizzleuk)

8.  Wines of the San Jaun (New Mexico) (phil795)

9. Moscato (Daniel Bryant)

10. Argiolas, Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino ($13)

11. Feudi di San Gregorio, Falanghina Sannio ($16)

12. Ocone, Falanghina del Taburno “Flora” ($14)

13. Zenato, Lugana San Benedetto ($14)

14. Allegrini, Palazzo della Torre ($17)

15. Castello di Volpaia, Chianti Classico ($20)

16. Valle Reale, Vigne Nuove Montepulciano d’Abruzzo ($12)

17. Hauner, Salina Rosso ($13)

18. Di Majo Norante, Ramitello Rosso IGT ($16) (Stefano–an amazing and magical contribution of bottles 10-19)

20. Boomtown, Dusted Valley (Montainstroh)

21. Montepulciano

22. French Cinsault (K.M Kowalski–says it is perfect with burgers!)

Thank you to all who contributed suggestions.

Bis.,

    Thank you very much, C!
    There is one thing you may want to revise in your post for clarity: the wines at #11 to 18 break up incorrectly – I am pasting the correct list down here (name of producer first, followed by wine appellation and name) so that if you want you can plug it into your post:

    11. Feudi di San Gregorio, Falanghina Sannio ($16)

    12. Ocone, Falanghina del Taburno “Flora” ($14)

    13. Zenato, Lugana San Benedetto ($14)

    14. Allegrini, Palazzo della Torre ($17)

    15. Castello di Volpaia, Chianti Classico ($20)

    16. Valle Reale, Vigne Nuove Montepulciano d’Abruzzo ($12)

    17. Hauner, Salina Rosso ($13)

    Take care and thanks again! :-)

    Fun blog! One of my favorite frugal house wines is Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil) Carmenere from Concha y Toro in Chile. Very solid for something like $9. And who doesn’t want to drink wine that came from the Devil’s Cellar?!? :o) Salud!

    Tasted the number 14 ( Allegrini, Palazzo della Torre) during an italian wine tasting last summer and I loved it!
    By the way thank you for following my blog, I do the same with your’s, guess we’ll help each other!

        Well my favorite wine is the Demure (Cabernet Sauvignon, D’Anbino Vineyards, Paso Robles). I brought back 4 bottles from California, around 18$/bottle this wine is awesome. SO tasty, fruity… I definitely love it!
