Exclamation Attention Winos:

I would like to buy a nice bottle of wine for a friend.
Unfortunately, I am winetarted... therefore incapable of making this purchase without guidance.
Help me buy the right wine, one red, one white.
Go!

Do you think this would be an acceptable trade off... volume for quality?

This bottle will be consumed by Dr. Amazing, the internal medicine specialist.
She won Educator of the year. This is a congratulatory bottle of wine.

Screw top or box?

Could always stop at a wine dealer if your budget allows and get their opinion.

I tried this yesterday. The woman working in the store was nearly as clueless as I am.

This may be how it all goes down.
I was hoping to find a few good answers from the 24,200 members here.

Not too likely when most here seem to think cheap beer is high class.

I enjoy a good caber neigh. However, I usually let a wine snob pick it so I can't give any useful advice.

Truth!
But... I remain helplessly hopeful.

"Menage a Tois" is a good blended wine.......either red or white. should run about 10.00/btl and a lot of taste for the buck, especially the red.

should be able to find it at Costco/Meijer, etc.

High life
It's the champagne of beer.
Champagne is better than wine.

Cheaper too. When you're done, the empty is worth a dime.

Wine is my adult beverage of choice so Im a bit familiar with it. These days Ive been sipping on red blends, Menage a trois is my favorite. Dave Matthews is in a joint venture with a vintner, they have a blend called Dreaming Trees "Crush" very good, harder to find than Menage a trois. Third favorite is Apothic Red, good stuff but doesnt finish as smooth as the first two blends I mentioned. All these blends are under 20.00

Just noticed you were interested in a white wine too. Gotta work on my reading skills. Menage a trois makes an ok white blend. A German reisling with citrus and mineral notes would be a good choice as well.
