Welcome to My Red Wine Guys. You will find interesting reviews on a variety of red wines and follow us on our wine adventures. We hope you enjoy our posts!
My red wine guys, Jim and Rich, have been drinking and comparing red wines together for the last 20 years. We drink reds exclusively (except for champagne or Sauvignon Blanc during New Year’s Eve celebrations or special occasions). In our search to find the best red wine for the buck, we are constantly buying and drinking a variety of reds. Frequently, we see many of our favorite reds increase in price. This motivates us to try and compare lesser known reds from a variety of wineries. We are constantly telling our friends where to buy and save on these great reds. One weekend over a bottle of red wine (of course), we decided to share our recommendations with the world via a blog (with the support of our wives who really think this is another way for us to drink more red wine). We are going to be making road trips up the coast and sharing our opinions on some great California Reds. Our love for wine has also led us to become WSET 3 certified. This will allow us to provide you with a more in depth analysis and history of the wines we blog about.
Jim is a retired Navy Senior Chief now working as a Project Manager for the Navy. His world travels have given him the opportunity to taste wines on different continents. He finds himself often comparing them to his favorite regions – Napa Valley’s Oakville/Rutherford/Stags Leap districts that produce some of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon’s. In addition, he has a passion for Italian wines from Tuscany and other Italian wine regions.
Richard is a musician who grew up in Santa Maria with a family rich with red wine tradition. According to the family legends, his grandfather used to make wine out of grapefruit when grapes were not available. He grew up drinking and making wine with his father and other Italian families in the central coast, long before there were grape vines in the area. In fact, the reason his family located to California was to make wine! Richard enjoys fine California wines and Italian wines (his roots!)
Thank you for visiting our site!
We hope you enjoy a glass of exceptional red wine soon!
