Best Wines for Your Buck

What’s better than Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years combined? National Wine Day. If you have caught a peek of my feed then you probably have noticed that I celebrate “wine day” on the regular… 😉

I’m sure you’d like to get to sipping so let me share with you my top picks amongst whites and reds! Trust me. I’m an expert.

Whites:

To be honest I buy most wines because I like the label. I’m more of a red girl, but when I was feeling like a fresh white wine I didn’t know where to start except for with the label. Lucky for me I found a really refreshing couple options!

My first stab at a light white was with Quinta da Aveleda – Vinho Verde 2014 and man oh man was it refreshing. It was a little bit grassy, but also a little bit fruity. Not too sweet except for the price at about ten dollars!

When in a hurry I found that a great grab is something Fetzer Wines. The Fetzer Sauvignon Blanc is really nice because of an incredibly crisp, green apple after taste. Fetzer Wines come from a certified sustainable vineyard. Cheers!

Reds:

Once upon a time I threw a wine tasting party and the favorite was a Bogle Merlot. Something about it was so smooth, a little lighter than a cab and it goes great with charcuterie or a hot pizza.

Perhaps you might cringe a little when you hear the phrase “boxed wine” but hear me out here. Initially I bought the Postulate Cabernet Sauvignon at Trader Joe’s because I read 1.5L per box (what is that like two bottles of wine? gasp!) and I was hosting a dinner party so I needed a LOT of wine. Good news – it’s actually very tasty and great for serving groups at a small price.

How are you celebrating National Wine Day? Any favorites your sipping on tonight? Let me know! I’m always looking for new wines to try!
