That’s a tough question because I buy wine all the time for my cellar or at restaurants or just to drink that night. I bought some Ridge 2008 Chardonnay the other day. I am in Heathrow airport now waiting for my flight to LA so I can’t remember the appellation. I tend to buy Bordeaux, Chablis and Barolo with some California non-Cabernet stuff and South America thrown in. But I am a big Germany and Austria fan too. It’s hard to generalize.
