Sorry everyone. I mean, if I'd known.
You should be ashamed of yourself, Thanks.

3 litres? I think I'd have trouble lifting and pouring it. lol

I'm not much of a wine guy, but Huntress, who sometimes posts here, is, so I asked her once what is a good not expensive wine to have around for guests, and she said that pretty much everyone seems to like Menage a Trois. They're blended from three different wines (thus the name), and they have a bunch of different varieties, but I've only tried a couple.

They're not expensive, and everyone so far has liked them, so they're usually what I get if I'm going to have wine drinking people over.

I will look for it! thanks

what were you cooking with wine? I've only ever put a splash of white on chicken or red in a stew.

This time, it was pot roast. I use about 2/3 of a bottle of red wine for an average sized pot roast, and then I freeze the excess liquor to use for soup.

I also use red wine in tomato sauces and other beef or tomato based things. For some reason, I never use white wine in cooking, although I always mean to learn how.

When I have chicken in a baking pan, seasoned with salt, pepper, lemon & sprigs of rosemary - I give it a generous splash of white. It turns out better with the wine as opposed to when I don't use it.

That could also be because I'm drinking the rest of the bottle as I cook.

I have made a nice dish of chicken stewed in Riesling a couple times. My Mom really liked it last time, so I'm sure I'll make it again. Also, most risottos call for white wine. I usually use cider for that, half a cup in the risotto and the rest of the bottle to drink works better for me than opening a bottle of wine for half a cup.

There is a very good recipe for Chicken Risotto in the book "Cooking out of this World" edited by Anne McCaffrey, it is a collection of recipes by science fiction writers. I have made the chicken dish a few times and it turns out good, but it is not a quick and easy dish. Plan on cooking most of the day to make it. It's early in the book on page 12.

I haven't had the chance to do mulled wine in a couple years. Xmas is gone, but it's still cold & damp outside, so what the hell. I use any dark red that I like, and I've got enough of a bottle of Cabernet for me own self left over in the fridge. Which is all I need 'cause the wife can't drink reds. I'd mull some mead (mulled white wine is friggin' pointless, unless you want to do some sweet bullshit like Moscato, which eww) so she could have some, but she'd have a whole half a glass and be done. So I can do what I want. (FUCK YOU! WE DO WHAT WE WANT!)

But not tonight 'cause I now have 2 ales in me and ales are where I shall remain ere I retire. Sometime this week though, since I already have the spice bag.

Not a wine drinker, here. Indeed, until I got my GERD under control, I couldn't even sip a glass of wine without setting off the demons. However, with meds, I've controlled the GERD and, on occasion, take a small glass of wine with dinner, generally just to sample the flavor.

Since I don't know what I'm talking about, I'll just say that most reds I've found to be 'too heavy', or 'too tannic', or just 'meh'. But when my housemate returned from Spain, she raved about the reds...with good cause. Smooth and flavorful without the heavy 'dirtiness' of so many other reds.
