Gibbisisgod- If she doesn't like straight champagne, you may want to try a sparkling rose. Tattinger makes a nice one that you can pick up for about $60 a bottle. I believe Wine Spectator gave it a 90 (out of 100), which is very good.

If you don't want to go the sparkling route, try a nice desert wine. A good bottle of Sauternes (french desert wine- delicious!!) would go really well with those chocolate covered strawberries you mentioned. You could always try an ice wine as well.

Go to any decent wine store and someone there will be able to help you with any of the three I mentioned. Just my . Good luck and congrats!!

Nothing like a bottle of Country Kwencher or Strawberry Hill while sitting on the beach. The problem is most people do not know how to drink the stuff. First you need to wrap the bag around the bottle unscrew the top and drink it right from the bottle. If you want to step it up a notch add a couple shots of vodka.

You can find this wine at any 7/11 and to show her how special she is sign her up to the Boone's Farm Fan Club. Read some of the testimonials.

Bad memories coming back... drank way too much Mad Dog 20/20 and Boone's back in college. I remember we got snowed in one day and classes were canceled, we treked out to the store and bought their entire stock of Boone's and had a Boone's Farm party. What a hangover the next day, wow.

Re: Any wine drinkers here?

dang, i was drinking boones strawberry hill when i was a lil kid.

there is another "type of champagne" called something like bavo or baco. champagne is stored in dark dark cellars, i think this stuff is very similar to champagne but is not as dry and is stored in a cave in italy or spain. it is available in the US.

Are you thinking of a Cava? Also, champagne is exclusively from the Champagne region in France. Otherwise it's just a sparkling white. Just a little tid-bit there.

Re: Any wine drinkers here?

maybe cava. i know champagne only comes from a region in france. what i was talking about is like champagne and only comes from a cave in italy or spain or somewhere.

the difference is that it matures quicker (2 years) and isnt supposed to be so dry? i dont know, im out of my element talking wine but this seemed to be the next closest thing to champagne that ive heard of.

back in HS we'd always get md 20/20 and there was always at least one person who couldn't stand it after we convinced them to get it

so that meant I always got a free bottle.. and hangover

btw the champange you recomended for new years the veuve cliquot p was pretty damn good, good call

as far as sweet wines go count me out, i'm all in on the dry stuff, chianti is my go to these days and no one can beat trader joes, 12 bottles for under $60 doesn't get any better

Oh nice! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Veuve Cliquot is so delicious. I don't normally like sparkling wines of any kind for the most part, but I love me some Veuve.

Some friends of mine created a version of a sake bomb called an Irish Knife Fight. Instead of chopsticks, they used plastic knives, and used Wild Irish Rose instead of sake.
