The 25 year wine was from Napa and Tepper was given crap about it not being from around here but it tasted REALLY GOOD and it shut people up lol.

Most NC wine is terrible. Childress gets away with some decent pinot grigio but generally speaking the climate and clay soil isn't good for making the traditional varietals.

$75???

That wine better taste God-Tier.

You do realize that $75 is not remotely near the top end of pricing for wine right? Before I got out of the service industry I poured 2k bottles of wine, and in my last gig was routinely pouring 200 dollar bottles of cabernet savignon to higher end regulars. Just fyi.

$75 for a "Red Blend?" There's no indication what percentage of which varietals, or which grapes even came from Napa. I'd take a hard pass.

Conversely, $45 for a Napa Chard is a damn good deal. Chalky means the grapes were grown in limestone rich soil, which is a Napa staple. So it will be drier and less buttery, but still a quality bottle. That'd be my choice.

And you couldn't pay me to drink a California sparkling.

Before prohibition NC produced more wine than any other state in the nation. Sweet dessert wines were more popular then, I guess. I've never had a scuppernong I could stomach.

We need to get real and admit wine and cheese is delicious, find some other way to tease the fans. 
 

It’s kind of funny I was sitting next to a heart surgeon last week who looked very “well to do” but on defense he would whistle loud as poo and his wife was pretty animated.

Well to be fair a bottle that costs $200 at a restaurant is usually only like 50-75 retail.
