Welcome, Nena. It sounds like you are off to a good start, this evening. At the moment I'm finishing off a bottle of Cano's Reserve Red from the Historic (it's on the label) Galleano Winery which is about a 30 minute drive for me.
Since you asked, here is my advice. Try as many wines as you can. Listen to others' recommendations, but don't consider them to be chiseled on stone tablets. If you like a wine, that's great. If you don't like a wine, consider it a learning experience and move on.
In addition to advising you, we look forward to learning from you. :-)

Rodney Strong is a great start! So, does this mean your evening will continue with something else? :)
What are some of your "standards"? By that I mean wines that you would grab without a thought because it's affordable and good, something you'd open for yourself on a Tuesday for supper?
I hear that it's cheaper if you go to Maryland or Delaware for your wine?
Are there some good shops near you?

Hi Nena, pretty good timing since I just published a small round up of five destinations yesterday. Really there are so many places to visit. Are you interested in staying in the states of traveling abroad?

Well, f you are interested in traveling around looking for great wine and food, I organized a high end tour to Spain for the fall: great wineries, local markets, all kinds of food and wine tastings, a master chef led cooking class in Barcelona, fabulous museums, ancient cities etc. If interested, I can send a presentation and brochure. It is like a European River Cruise but on the land between Madrid and Barcelona. Not cheap. Just a fantastic trip.
