Cork Poppers

Our Cork Poppers gatherings combine food and wine. We taste, we savor! There is no way any one of us would call ourselves experts! But we've learned a little bit about the mechanics and a LOT about what we like or don't -- and really, that's what it's all about. Doesn't matter if it is pricey or not, if you don't like it -- it's not the right thing!

Below you will find links to the various wine-related posts on The Marmelade Gypsy, listed by category.

In the Cork Poppers links below you will learn about the wines we tasted and our not-so-scientific or stuffy comments about each and the prices paid. Bear in mind that some of the posts go back a number of years and the prices most certainly will have changed.

Also remember that different vintages (say, a 2010 Bordeaux) might be more (or less) expensive than the same Bordeaux from the same vintner in a different year. So these are just approximations.

Wine posts are listed by category when possible. Some Cork Popper gatherings had a "mixed bag," that is, wines from various countries or for various occasions. Some of these are our personal favorites and those posts are worth a look.


French Wines

French Bistro Wines (wines of France)

Wines of the Rhone Valley 

Italian Wine (and Mediterranean)

Mixed Wines (no theme, some are "favorites" posts)

Cork Poppers meet about every two months, so look for new additions to this page after they first appear on The Marmelade Gypsy.

And, if you enjoy wine, try something new! You don't have to break the bank to enjoy a tasty wine!
