    Dry riesling

    Does anyone have recommendations for "dry" riesling? Generally it is not a style of wine I would enjoy as a drink, but the style seems to match some food dishes extremely well.

    Help me :) A different request from an AFF wine lover......

    Hi all, was pondering in which thread to post this, but decided it didn't really fit, and may be nonsensical, so easiest to create another thread, even if just to outweigh the pandemic of Corona things.... This is complicated - let me explain: I drink a lot of wine. Really, lots. (This is...

    What to do with cheap wine?

    What do you do with 60 bottles of cheap wine? I have a few dozen of various cheap wines (eg maverick) that were good on purchase, that I bought a few years ago.

    Dan Murphys "Decoded" - allowing us commoners :) to make easier choices!!

    Hi all, not sure if this thread/post will be of much interest here, as it seems the prolific AFF posters in the wine sub-forum are well above average in their general wine knowledge, but I wanted to share it as I think it is a really sensible idea by Dans. Confession - I spend way more time in...

    Afternoon all ! Anyone have any tips/info on current Costco wine deals? I'm primarily interested in any quality imports they have at the moment. Last time I went through their range was about twelve months ago and the selection - at the Moorabbin Vic store - was mundane and a number of their...

    Just received an email promoting the "Velocity Wine Store". Another Laithwaites reskin site offering the same 2ppd earn rate as the existing Laithwaites Virgin Wines site... The main point of difference I can see is that it's possible to redeem points for wine. But why they couldn't have just...

    Hey all, Don't post a lot but read this forum often.... I recently travelled through France drinking excellent vin natural - or wine which is unfined, unfiltered and with no additives.
