You 3d-scan it, 3d-print it, pulverize it, add water, and drink. Simple, isn't it? Of course, you need to buy the right "ink" for your 3d-printer.

Yesterday was a amazing wine day. I tried:

1989 dessert Chenin Blanc from the Loire - appellation escapes me.
1983 Santa Cruz Mts Vineyard Pinot Noir
1980 Santa Cruz Mts Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
2007 Alesia Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Falstaff Vineyard
2008 Littorai Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard

In the last couple of months have had several bottles of 2010 La Vieille Ferme (Perrin & Fils) Côtes du Ventoux. This is that $8 Rhone. It really is a great daily.

My father has favoured those in the past.

Haven't had one in a while, but I've been a fan of the Penfolds Koonunga Hill cab-shiraz, like $16 a bottle here which is about what I like to pay for table wine.

Should also add that we had a bottle of Bodegas Lan Rioja Crianza last night. Really good, though it was about $30.

I have had a few, I think I have paid a bit more though, like $11...

Hmmm.. maybe I need to go in search of cheap French vino... in my preferred regions I find very little under $15-20 that I find palatable let alone enjoy. Exceptions being some Spanish and some rose.

I've been very happy with cheapo Spanish wines. Some great Syrah.

Have you ever had a good Cote Rotie, or Hermitage?

I've had a few failures too. However, that one delivers for a weekday meal. Also, cru Beaujolais is nice at $13-15.

What I've come to realize is that really drinkable Left Coast wine is nearly impossible to find under $25. The best under $20 bottle I can get is off the Stefania's mailing list, Haut Taube.

What cru beau can you get for under $20? I always see them at $20 and up.

In what market? I pay about 12-15 for Lan Crianza

British Columbian, absurd sin taxes. They don't change whether or not we have far right or far left in parliament.

Pio - have you had Lioco chardonnay (not SVD) or their red Indica? Both can be found at 15-18 and are great weekday drinking bottles.
