Red, red wine

You make me feel so fine.

It was necessary to get stocked up on some wine as I am anticipating the arrival this weekend some fellow red-wine lovers: my brother and his girlfriend.

I usually try to stay around $10/bottle and about half of the Oklahoma wines were in my price range.

My haul:

$7.99
Feroli Cabernet Sauvignon from Purcell, OK
Not sure where the grapes were grown, but the labels says the wine was “cellared and bottled by Feroli Winery in Purcell, OK”
The label also tells the story of an Italian emigrant who made wine for friends and family in Italy. Once in Boston, he sold fruits and vegetables on street corners and made wine from grapes that didn’t sell. Now, his grandson and great-grandson continue the wine-making tradition.
This wine is a good buy at $8. It took a little bit to get used to the aftertaste, but no big deal.

$10.99
Another cab sauv; this time from Windmill Winery in Roosevelt, OK.
Grapes were grown in Texas and the wine was made in Oklahoma.
Lookin’ forward to it!

$11.99
Classic Red Dry Table Wine from Canadian River Vineyards and Winery
“Vinted and bottled in Slaughterville, OK”
Nice story on the label:
“Canadian River Vineyards and Winery is the fulfillment of a 25-year dream for the owners. It is our goal to grow the best wine grapes and produce the highest quality wine possible for our customers.”
