1908 Madera drinking 2 glasses in the restaurant kitchen while working in between tables.

Which wine do you love at the moment?

I love to hear and learn about different regions and varietals. I want to hear about others experiences too. I believe wine quality is important, but what is even more important to me is the winery experience!
