Do you prefer RED or WHITE wines?

It depends on what food I am pairing with the wine. Also the season, the weather, my mood, the company, my surroundings, etc.

What is currently your favorite wine?

Bit specialized, but I really like Banyuls from Langue d'Oc. Really goes well with Soufflé au Chocolat or other chocolates for that matter. Also starting to appreciate a good Barolo DOCG. I especially like Mario Gagliasso's Roche dell'Annunziata.

How much on average do you spend on a bottle of everyday wine?

Depends on what kind of meal the wine is to be paired and how extravagant I feel that day

Where do you like to shop for wine?

Wine House, Trader Joe's, Vendome, (Have yet to do to the Liquor Store in Silver Lake for their wine tastings....supposed to be fun.) Nose Wine Bar in Pasadena (RIP)


Hi, we met at Wm. O'Neill's when he hosted the dinner for the B&B's last March. We talked about wine.... Congratulations on creating a group with so many members. I'm sure your charisma had something to do with it.

What Gary I. is saying about this Meetup Group

Gay Winos: Great group of guys who are cordial, down-to-earth, and have aged like some fine Chateau Lafite Rothschild/Romanee Conti.
