What about the sex appeal of owning a few shares in a winery. You know,leave the annual report and a photocopy of a share certificate on the coffee table,when friends come over they are duly impressed and you can open a bottle of 'your" wine for them.Don't use the hard-earned money to invest in the wine stocks but the "easy" money you got from somewhere ie;gambling, wife's inheritance etc.If most guys wanted to die in a whore house, a winery with some good blends all around and open would be my second choice.Think I'll get a few shares of RVWD,possibly MOND,BERW and maybe even VCO--I said a few shares like from BUYandHOLD. BUT I will do some HEAVY research on their wines before I take the plunge.Fool On and Sip wisely,SaglekTrying Robert Mondavi Woodbridge 1999 Sauvignon Blanc with some kind of Chicken cous cous "stuff" the ol' lady is fixing Right NOW--I just heard the cork pop.and the "triangle" ringing.
>>What about the sex appeal of owning a few shares in a winery.<< You want "sex" appeal? Check this site out for Maryln Merlot! (Yes, it's a real wine that comes out with a new label every year. It appears that they have more than one pressing, too, with a wine by another name.)http://www.marilynmerlot.comCheers,TMFStar
Let's say I want to get really, really fired up. Would you recommend merlot, zinfandel, or sangiovese?
Someone from France inquiring about wine? interesting. Anyway, Merlot may be the best, butZin has the most zest, and Sangiovese beats the rest for lust. Cheers! And in France you would say???
<<And in France you would say???>>Curse life and die!
It is my understanding that these Monroe Merlots have some collector interest. Thhey seem to be worth more as an oddity than as a beverage. I saw them when they first came out and scoffed! Dumb wine snob. I could have swapped them off now for some real wine.Ha! Cheers!
In reality I am not French.I have a serious comment for the denizens of this board: what is your perception, and your experience with the perception of others, of the 'wine beverage' products; the Wild Vines, Arbor Mist, etc. I suspect it's not overwhelmingly positive, but what about your less knowledgeable friends?
Oui! I agree. Good response. The French do have a gusto for life, while at the same time maintain a distain for all that it is. They do provide some wonderful fulfillments of our general vices however.Enjoy!
