Welcome Ponce,

(Isn't that sort of a derogatory term?  I remember Ben Kingsley's character in Sexy Beast calling the main character that, it wasn't nice).

What wines are you enjoying currently?

Ponce is a very derogatory term so I am surprised to see it used as a name on here

Who knew?  Interesting insights from two of our non-U.S. participants.

Well, WP, let me add my welcome.  We would be happy to help you learn. The flip side of that is that we will also learn from you.  Reprising DV's request, please tell us about the wines that you enjoy, or, if it is easier, tell us about the wines that you do not enjoy.

Well, Wine Ponce is the term used buy a particular TV presenter that I like: http://youtu.be/0z6kV-RIZM0?list=PL0BB9337D2BFCF120

I don't think it's that derogatory -- but folks from the UK may beg to differ.

Oz Clarke and James May are both well known TV presenters on this side of the pond. Oz appears on shows involving food and wine while James is a presenter on 'Top Gear ' a show about cars. He also writes about cars and motorbikes for magazines. James is a very down to earth character while he considers Oz to be a little snobbish and pretentious hence the use of the word 'ponce ' The u-tube video is actually rather entertainiong

I am reading Kevin Zraly's Windows on the World: A Complete Wine Course. I'm currently reading about (and drinking) white wines from France. I really like them! I had a Riesling from Alsace yesterday -- I loved it.
