This is something I'd like to learn because I'm still behind on many of the world's wine regions and definitely lacking knowledge about particular wineries/vineyards/regions within countries.

So, based on your personal experience, can anyone help with the "If I like ABC region/winery/grape, then you should also try XYZ region/winery/grape"??? For example, I learned from a helpful sommelier that if I liked the style of California Zins, I should also try wines from the Priorat region of Spain.

Other helpful suggestions?

Interesting question, AES. If you mentioned some of your favorite wines or the styles you prefer, it might help focus the discussion.

My own faves follow a similar vein; they're all high in acidity and tend to be light- to medium-bodied. Some of them are: Riesling (especially Germany, Alsace and Austria), Gruner Veltliner (Austria), Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand and the Loire), Chablis and Champagne, Pinot Noir (from anywhere--I've been hooked since 1987--though I've been drinking a lot from New Zealand lately), and Syrah (especially from the Northern Rhone). And this list will change a little in winter -- it's been a hot summer day here and we're about to open a pair of Austrian Rieslings to go with some fresh-caught striped bass.
i would find it easyer from the other side.

if you don't like burgundy because of it's taste
you could skip all other pinot noir. if you don't like burgundy because it's to acid or light in collor, you could try others, like usa
but not switzerland's blauburgunder Wink

if you don't like montrachet, you can forget all chardonays arround the world Wink

if you don't like petrus/lafleur you can forget the rest Wink Big Grin made with merlot

if you don't like chateauneuf, you can forget all the other grenache Wink

if you don't like vintage port, why try the other ports like that (exclude all tawny)

if you don't like nieeport colheita, why try all other tawnys

and so on Big Grin

Eek i all ready fear the answers Eek
