I'm at home with a sniffly, teething baby today, and while she's sleeping I thought I'd jump on here and throw a question out for you to chew on.One question I get asked quite often is "What's your favourite wine?" My reply is usually pretty wishy-washy: I don't have a favourite, I like them all, it depends on the price/my mood/the temperature/what I'm eating, etc. These are all pretty much true, but my answer usually ends up being a bit of a conversation killer.I'm thinking about doing a column on my least
favourite grape varietal. In June I was at a wine dinner in Calgary with a bunch of wine critics, and the question came up. We went around the table, and when I mentioned my least favourite wine grape, a lot of these critics frowned. I'll leave it at that for now, except to say it's a white wine grape and it's fairly popular right now.How about you - do you have a favourite wine? A favourite grape? Least favourite?Gotta go - I'm being beckoned...
