From: Lodi, Calif Price: $14 Serve with: Beef short ribs, lamb shanks This full-bodied red wine packs a flavorful punch, even if it isn't the most elegant cabernet in California. It offers a full measure of cassis, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of chocolate cake and coffee. This is not a wine to serve with rack of lamb or beef filet, but would make a wonderful match with some of the less-exalted cuts of red meat. There's lots of burly charm here at an excellent price.

From: Barossa Valley, Australia Price: $21 Serve with: Grilled meat, beef stew, lasagna This is a red wine whose flavors truly convey an image of the vines: squat, weathered old bushes with small yields of fat, ripe grapes. There's that old-vine concentration of gamy, meaty, earth flavors and dense blackberry fruit. It's a lush, intense wine with a creamy texture and a burly elegance. It's a total pleasure and well worth the above-average price. -- Michael Dresser

When we realized our zucchini were dying of squash vine borer, we tried making the vertical cuts in the stem and fishing out the white grubby worms, but we were too late. How can we never have that happen to our beautiful zucchini? Plant late and protect. Put out transplants or plant seeds in mid-June. Then keep them covered with floating row cover until flowers open so the adult vine borer (a moth) can't get to the zucchini to lay its eggs. You'll still have time for plenty of zucchini and even more plantings.

There seem to be an awful lot of vines on the trees in our area. We're having a community meeting to discuss it. What should we do about them? High levels of carbon dioxide benefit some plants more than others, and vines are big beneficiaries. However, you need to identify which vines you have. Natives such as Virginia creeper and poison ivy usually don't harm trees, having evolved together. Invasive vines such as oriental bittersweet and English ivy, on the other hand, are highly damaging because they smother and weigh down trees — as well as other plants.

Vines give me the creeps. I don't trust them. Vines grow too fast and they always want to grab onto things. Mostly they stick to walls and trees, but who knows? I couldn't sleep if I thought vines were scrambling up the side of my house.My mother shares my concern. A 40-year veteran of the `f honeysuckle wars, her goal is to drive the stubborn vines from her yard. But the honeysuckle won't die.

Rapidly growing vines will smooth out the rough edges of the landscape. They can climb a wooden fence, trellis or masonry wall, covering these harsh architectural features with fresh green foliage and often a flush of flowers.Many gardeners have difficulty finding a suitable spot for vines, but all that's needed is an open vertical site. Very little ground space is necessary, and some vines including Confederate jasmine, mandevilla and bougainvillea will grow even in a container set near a wall.

From: Amador County, Calif. Price: $13 Serve with: Hearty stews, grilled red meat This feature usually avoids wines with limited distribution, but this was just too compelling a value to withhold. It's an intensely peppery, complex and well-balanced red wine with authentic old-vines character. The rich blackberrry fruit is enhanced with nuances of black pepper, chocolate and herbs. Despite a hefty 14.9 percent alcohol, the wine is all smoothness and no heat. It easily holds its own with zins at twice the price.

Boordy Vineyards, Maryland's oldest and one of its largest wineries, has started over. Transforming the northern Baltimore County winery meant ripping up its grape-growing and winemaking operations literally root and branch, and rebuilding them at a cost of more than $3.3 million. "What we're doing is making a big investment in the future of making wine in Maryland," said Rob Deford, Boordy's president and co-owner, whose family will host a reception this week opening the new winemaking operation.

From: California Price: $18 Serve with: Hearty stews, pasta dishes, pizza This is a big charming bear of a red wine from Geyser Peak - burly but with a gentle soul. It's positively loaded with fruit, and it fully achieves the trick of seeming sweet without being sweet. There are lush flavors of blackberry, herbs and chocolate and a smooth texture that begs to be drunk - now!. -- Michael Dresser

In an age when there are "baby apps" for the iPad and HBO is reissuing classic children's books as made-for-TV musicals, it's nice just to take the kids to visit some goats. Some hard-working, big-eating goats. My husband and I spent a weekend soloing as handlers for Mikey, the 22-month-old grandson with the halo of blond curls, and when a friend spotted a herd of goats along the side of a road, we were off. There's nothing toddlers like more than barnyard animals that are roughly the same size they are. "Goats!
