What is a "go to winery"?






A "go to winery" is a winery that almost never, if ever, fails to deliver satisfaction with its wines across the whole spectrum of its production.
Why talk about this subject?
The other day I was listening to a wine-spokesperson list a bunch of wine companies she would recommend, and if or when you buy any of their wine products, you'll be happy or satisfied that you did so; I couldn't, based on my own experience of some of those wines, disagree with her more.
My comments are not about whacking any particular wine company, but there are not many across-the-board wines from a winery (found in the tiny state of NH) that I'd say "buy" without a thought to the Quality/Price/ Ratio value of the wine(s) you're buying; don't have the time, don't care too much about the cost, and just want to get a bottle or two of wine and run; I'd definitely would go with any of these wineries.
So, rather than criticize her choices, here I offer-up my own "go to wineries" of the USA.
This is a work in progress.

  1. You have chosen some fabulous wineries, but the Groth 2010 Reserve has to be my very favourite in this little batch. Good choices!

  2. VG: Are you saying that Groth Winery is your choice as an across-the board go-to winery for assured quality and confidence that the wine(s) you might purchase there will be worth the money you plonk down? Just asking! ;-)
