    I like Trader Joe's for cheap wines. They get some good ferrin wines in for a very reasonable price.

    Looking to design my new wine label today if I have time. Used to just use JWS Wines and a picture of whatever fruit, or a generic grape picture. Thinking I may change name and find some type of dance logo.

    That is so much fun to do...

    I have a picture of my last wine label earlier in his thread, etp...:)

    Yeah, it's a ton of fun, but I haven't done it for sevearl years. Opened a couple bottles I had made long ago whiel I was visitin gparents, helped get me interested again, so going to restart when I make it back.

    Had to go back several pages, but love the label. :) I'm just happy if I get mine on straight, not creative enough to get a pun like that. ;)

    Wow people who make wine and their own labels here? Hopefully I'll meet you all someday, and you'll rescue me from my beer :)

    He didn't say it was good beer. ;)

    If there is such a thing, even.

    Seems like an oxymoron to me...

    Heh, not a big beer drinker myself, but friends and some family members like it, and I'll drink it on occasion, though I prefer wine.

    And sure thing lc, as soon as I have a house and get production started again, we can have a DF party there. :)

    As an Aussie I have to ask, what australian wines do you get in the land of overseas? I'm not going to pretend to know anything about wine, but the Eaglehawk cabernet sauvignon is a favourite with my partner and I. Do you know it?

    I would love to make my own wine. I've tried my hand at spiced cider, which turned out tasting like apple pie :p and I'm going to try making mead, once the cider's gone.

    Thistle, we get both good and bad Aussie and Enzie wine up here, least by my taste. :) I haven't seen Eaglehawk myself, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. My regular liquor store lists 300+ australian wines though (not labels, just wines), everything from $6 Yellow tail to $550 Henshke Shiraz HIll of Grace. My buying tends to be on the cheaper end, of course. :)

    300+ ... that might possibly be more than what mine does... :tongue:

    Wine pioneer, Robert Mondavi, passed away today, age 94.

    I'm bummed about not having had the opportunity to meet him. :(

    It might have been neat to chat with him and learn something from his experiences.

    Australian Wines are suppose to be well renowed...I live close to the Wine Primo Region the Barrossa Valley. If youever get a chance to try a Pepperjack that is a good one, Peter Lehman is also good as it Jacobs Creek (Premium Range). Limestone coast wines are starting to become popular, we dont pay anymore than $20.00 per bottle and normally it will be a good drop.
