Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Wines to Pick as Your (Affordable) House Wines

 

Since the start of the Lockdown I have taken some solace with drinking good wine with dinner. In these chaotic economic conditions it’s good to have excellent wine available at good prices.

Below is a list of high quality but affordable wines that I am sharing on Ricochet. Maybe it will be useful for some and maybe come comments will include other favorite wines. I limited it nine wines so people can nominate a wine for the #10 spot.

It’s finally Friday of a very busy week! Jim and Greg have plenty to say about a member of the House Democratic leadership admitting to CNN that the Democrats may never send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate unless Mitch McConnell agrees to the demands of Democrats for how the trial of President Trump ought to be structured. They also hammer Joe Biden, who admitted that he’s willing to kill thousands – possibly hundreds of thousands of jobs in the energy sector – because he’s supremely confident the green economy will offer just as many opportunities for great jobs. And they are the glad the holidays are right around the corner as Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate descends into discussions of wine caves and selfies.

Starting Monday, Jim and Greg will begin their six-episode Three Martini Lunch Awards for 2019. They each hand out 18 awards in categories ranging from overrated and underrated political figures to rising and fading political figures to the best and worst political ideas of the year, eventually working up to their choices for person of the year. Enjoy these special episodes and let us know what you think of our choices and share who you would choose!

My lovely wife and I have decided (well, she suggested, I just nodded my head yes because I am happy to be with her where ever she wants to go) to drive up the western shore of Lake Michigan, on Wisconsin’s east coast, travel across the UP, cross the bridge and come back through Michigan, […]

Class, today’s quotes are on the topic of wine. I’m not a very good drinker myself, I mean I get drunk after a few sips of any kind of alcohol. Okay I’m a cheap date. But I’ve always liked the idea of wine. It seems so elegant. I worked at Air France for 11 years […]

French President Hollande took a firm stand for French culture:  The meeting [with Iranian President Rouhani] was supposed to take place over lunch – normally served with an array of French dishes and a top-grade wine vintage as well as cheese. France is hugely proud of its culinary credentials, with its gastronomic meal recently pronounced […]

First off, this post does not require counting or drinking for each time you hear Let me be clear*, but feel free to do so, if you need strength and courage. Now, let me be clear*, this info is probably already somewhere on Ricochet, but you know how it is when things are lost, and you can’t find […]

Dear WSJ Wine, I do love many WSJ offerings, including most especially Wall Street Journal in the Morning. However, I must make my concerns regarding your wine offerings known. Tonight, my husband and I opened FOUR bottles from the most recent shipment and found, quite literally, one of them drinkable, and that was about the […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Why I Never Drink Alone

 

400px-Napa_Valley_Photo_D_Ramey_Logan_What makes St. Helena in Napa County different?

When the rain is pelting down (yes, we actually have some today); when the fire is blazing; when the book is riveting; it’s only a few small steps into the coveted wine cellar where one finds not a booze closet, but a liquid scrapbook — corked and bottled. Whitman said, “never am I less alone than, than when alone.” And one is never truly alone when Napa Cab is near.

So, when the day is done, and one sits — fire roaring, book in lap (maybe at a younger age, with something else in lap) — is there anything more apropos than a bottle from one’s own cellar?
