I am a former CA transplant to Louisville, KY where wine is an enigma to most. Selection here is terrible because there is very little allocated to this area, and some wineries boycott KY because of archaic distribution laws recently enacted. I fully support the boycott, I wish ALL wineries would boycott KY, then we would see some changes in the law.

Fortunately, I have the ability to travel to Napa/Sonoma/Temecula regularly and can legally ship wine to myself from the wineries. I have about 35 cases laid down right now and would like to build that up to about 80-100 in the next five years. I probable have about 15-20 bottles of whites in the cellar, mostly oak-aged chardonnays, the rest are reds and a couple of cases of champagne.

My everyday reds are usually V. Sattui Red Table wine, Merlot, Zinfandel or Cabernet. My favorite varietal is the Petite Sirah, but V. Sattui does not grow those.

I mostly drink whites with fruity character with fruit/cheese appetizers, and Chardonnay with poultry. I prefer light reds or champagne with seafood, heavier reds with beef, rich pasta dishes, and mexican food. One or two glasses of red per day has reduced my cholesterol from 215 to about 180. I can not attribute it to any other cause, as I have made no other changes to my diet or lifestyle that would account for it, and I am older now, cholesterol should be going up, not down. Correction, I have become much closer to Christ in the last 7 years, it could be the power of prayer too.
