  • Is there a Trader Joes near you? That is the place for bargain wines. I am a big fan of Rioja (Spanish red); I have no idea what your taste is. If you would like to learn about wines, without spending money on a class, start going to wine tastings in your area.

  • Uh first of all if you have to buy anything to relax, something is wrong. What you need to do is to take a long hot bubble bath, go to bed early and that would be relaxing.. not drinking alcohol. If you need alcohol to relax, that is the first sign of a problem. Get a book, get some bubble and go take a nice long bath.. just because you're 21 does not mean you have to drink.

  • I Like Berringer White Ziffindale. Its not too expensive. And I LOVE the taste and it gets me relaxed.

  • If you like red, a pinot noir is very mild and delicious...all price ranges. Let's just all ignore anon =) Ridiculous comment...Enjoy your birthday!

  • Fetzer Cabernet or Merlot is usually a really good inexpensive wine. I also agree w/ gramsmom about the Pinot Noir's being a good mild choice for a red wine. I'm not a white wine lover so I can't help you there ;) Happy Birthday!

  • yellow tail wines are pretty good, and pretty cheap. Carlo Rossi is super cheap (10$ for a bum jug) and it's not horrible

  • Just cause you're 21 doesn't mean you need to drink. It's just dumb to start something you don't need. Curl up with good book or rent a chick flick. Being able to drink doesn't make you grown up, but being able to just say no to any of it is MATURE.
