    We almost always find at least 1 wine we're willing to buy at the small Mom&Pop wineries we love to visit. And when we open one with dinner or around a campfire... "Remember when we went..." But it's VERY unusual for us to buy THAT much. One of the wineries suckered us in with a 35% off a full case Easter weekend special after letting us taste 17 different wines! We tasted a LOT of very nice wines, and I don't think we bought more than 2 bottles of any of them. We were VERY impressed by the Lake michigan wines. I also HIGHLY recommend Lake Erie wines from Ohio - and that's NOT just prejudice because we live in Ohio. Then again, considering the rivalry between Ohio State & Michigan, I should probably recommend AGAINST their wines. But I just can't make myself do it. They're just too good.
    The only truly stupid question is the one you SHOULD have asked - but DIDN'T.

    We have many wineries where I live, some within 5-6 miles(we even have
    the oldest winery in the United States in the next town), but
    most of the wine I've tried has not been good enough for me
    to buy a case. We buy a bottle to be nice. Wine tasting is fun though.

    Same here. If we don't particularly like any of their wines, we'll at least buy something sweet or semi-sweet to give to friends who DO like sweet wines. Or once in a while we'll open a bottle of a sweet wine as dessert. That's Ice Wine's usual fate at our house.
    The only time we've ever bought a full case of any wine was a case of Saint-Hillaire Brut for $10 per bottle. The $150 bottle of Dom Perignon I bought for our anniversary one year was NOT worth $140 more than the Saint-Hillaire!

    P.S. The only other time we've spent $150 for a bottle of wine was a 5 liter bottle of Markko Vineyard 1991 Reserve Chardonnay. It lasted almost 2 hours at our family Christmas gathering. My wife has 7 siblings, and they were all there with spouses.
