Default hookah and wine?

I drink alot of wine, 99% reds, cabs, zins, etc. however tonight we had fish, orzo and grilled veggies so i decided on a fume blanc by groth from costco, (only$13, their cab is about $42) It had a peach flavor similar to AF's peach. Anyways it was excellent for pairing with this food. After dinner I continued with AF cardomom. What a great mix. AR, care to chime in on this one....

I love the pinot noir, the cavernet suavignon (I think it spells like that) and the merlot with a nice steak. I haven't done the wine-hookah thing but someday I'll try, what I've done is drink a lot of baileys in the rocks and have some chocomint hookah, also some big glasses of kahlua in the rocks with some irish cream. Great stuff!

I do the wine thing with hookah. I love a good wine I am actually a member of a wine group and I am going to be putting together a night out for "Hookah and Wine" I am going to try to work out a deal with a business to let us bring our own wine and charge us a corkage fee. Should be a fun night!

I went to a wine tasting / art fest last night and ended up talking with these two chicks about hookah and wine ... couple of good looking ladies too, and both were from middle eastern ethnic backgrounds. Was a lot of fun to talk with them ..

I am a fan of wine. I prefer red over white and as far as I am concerned blush does not exist.
I could go into my favorite domestics and imports or the grape types I prefer that give a good nose and flavor as well as mouth feel but I don't think we have time for that.

Above all else my favorite wine is honey wine or mead. I LOVE it and mead pairs very well with hookah.

Each mead is different depending on the time of year that the honey was harvested, what kind of bees they were, the area they gathered in and the types of plants they gathered from. Beyond that there is more variation in flavor based on what the mead is brewed with. Pyment, melolmels, cysers, metheglins....
The list of variations is endless. It ranges from the very simple dry mead all the way to things like Apis Jadwiga which is brewed with raspberry and spices. There are even rhodamels, mead brewed with rose blossoms. It's amazing.

I brew my own so the variations are endless.

The chiantis are great, have you ever tried the wines from the Friuli region!?

I have to do some research cause I tried them the last year in my trip to italy, but I'll go again in a week, I'll stay in Firenze (Florence) for two weeks so I'll ask some of my teachers about good vinyards, to tell you wich one you can put your 2 cents on.

White Zinfandel wine and hookah is a great mixture and very very soothing after coming back from a long days worth of work.

I hear that if you put wine into a different kind of water pipe you get purple smoke

We only discuss one kind of "water pipe" in this forum and that sounds like a load of crap regardless!

Don't tell that to the French.

Rosť passes white wine as France's favourite

Bah. they are drinkable but you can't age them, they have flat flavor...

then again I have not tasted a blush in a long time. Maybe it is time.
