For a real after dinner treat, try some ice wines from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. I thnk some American vitners are making ice wine by artifically freezing the grapes, but it's not the same thing.

In real ice wine, the grapes are harvested after freezing and the ice covering (which is made up of water from the grape's interior) is knocked off and then all proceeds according to plan, except the grape is super concentrated!

Piq may correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall a lot of the books we've been reading, What to Expect When You're Expecting (aka "the evil book"), Pregnancy Sucks, What's Going On in There?, et al, all reccommend against drinking while breast feeding as a general rule, the exception being to plan ahead and bottle some to feed while the mother fully processes any alcohol she's imbibed.

Mmd2b, any insight here?

Chardonnay has a wide variety of styles.
California went gaga over oaky, buttery "big" wines for a decade or so. I'm not too fond of those, but I like the minerally style quite a bit.

Chablis was eclipsed by Chardonnay but I like it a lot. Pinot Gris - yum.

I've had several good Argentinian wines, including one from Norton - a good drinkable red. Most enjoyable.

I enjoyed the whites I drank in NZ, didnt try any reds.
In Spain, I preferred the reds, in Italy the whites. In both cases I was drinking local table wines, not stuff designed for export.
Altoid - curiously strong.
