RE: Red or white?
Correct....Bud is NOT beer..at least not any more...expensive water!.as are most american national brands. Gallo is grape juice with a kick(no love as an ingredient in the making of that one!)
In answer to the question,I choose according to the meal...I prefer a good Red wine,but will go a white with fish.
I like a Merlot whem just drinking...or with cheese and bread. I usually check with our liquor store for suggestions...quality wines at great prices are out there...Start by asking!!!! And then find one to your taste..and enjoy. That, I think, is perhaps the BEST answer to this question!
