    Wine

    Are there any wine drinkers here?

    To be honest, I hate wine. White wine I can barely stand - but that's because whenever I drink it, it's one of the cheapest ones.

    However, I'd like to try red wine. You know, get a bottle, drink a glass every now and then. I don't think I have tried red wine yet, so what do you recommend? I dislike the strong taste of alcohol, so something that covers that up is what I'd like to try. Are there different types of red wine? If so, which one is the best tasting?

    Feel free to also answer any questions I haven't asked.

    I like red wine, but don't drink it that much. More of a beer guy myself. Have to buy a bottle of wine again, thanks for the reminder.

    Beer guy as well. But want to try different stuff.

    Actually checked out some local wineries online. There's a lot of them since this area has been known for its grapes and wine for centuries, and is a part of one of Serbia's Wine Routes. Damn this shit can get expensive, especially for a college student. The cheapest, non-commercial ones go for around 10 €. That's like my week's spendings. Some local, non-commercial ones even go as far as 100 €. And I fear the commercial, cheaper ones are just disgusting. But I'll have to try with that, to see if I like it in the first place.

    I'll probably go for Merlot or Pinot Noir at first. Read that they are a bit on the lighter side of the spectrum, so I just might like that.

    I hate beer, I hate wine, I hate liquor, I hate everything that contains alcohol. But out of these three wine must be the must disgusting thing.

    Give me a well-prepared juice.

    Ok, some long drinks are okey, in right company and right setting, but apart from that I find most alcohol bevarages pretty gross in general. It just doesnt taste good/natural for me.

    Oh, thought there were some moral reasons.

    Yeah, most of them are, UNLESS you drink them for some time, after which they can taste very good. When you taste beer for the first time, it's disgusting if you have no history of drinking something alcoholic. Same goes for hard drinks such as vodka, gin, whiskey and whatever else.

    At my aunt and uncle's place, I had half a glass of some red wine. It was of a Montenegrin sort, called Vranac, which is a specific sort of grape that grows only there, if I'm correct.

    So, the name of the wine itself is Vranac "Pro Corde" (For the Heart - supposedly it being healthy). I believe it was my first glass of red wine, ever. It took a bit to get used to the taste, but after that, I liked it. I had a sip after a decent beef stew, and then with dessert. Having it with desert I found not to be really nice, since it can taste a bit sour after eating a chocolate and/or fruit cakes.

    As for the price, it's around 5 € per bottle (0,75 l), which is ok. It's not the cheapest one, and it's not the most expensive one either. So I believe I might pick up a bottle of that sometime soon. Or Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. Not sure, I'll see.

    Bought my first bottle, it's a Montenegrin Cabernet (so it's a red wine). It's not really expensive. It's basically Cabernet with a minimal amount of Vranac, a sort of grapes that grows in Montenegro. From the same brand, I drank the Pro Corde and it was much better as far as I can remember (see last post).

    This one tastes a bit too light and has perhaps more tannin than I'd prefer. Still trying to wrap my head around this, how to actually know what I'm tasting but I think I'm on the right track. The judgment remains, I am not quite fond of this specific wine and its taste, so my next bottle will be a different one.

    Just googled it and the first result was: "Why is Amarone wine so expensive?"
