Drink It or Dump It? The Quest for Affordable Fine Wine.

January 6, 2009 at 4:50 am 2 comments


Are you, like me, looking for affordable wine that is still a yummy treat?  I am on a quest to find some wines that can be staples on my wine rack.  Yes, I have no wine cellar, no aspirations to buy fine wines that are worth more than my mini van.  I just want to enjoy a nice glass of wine on a Friday night.

Some wines are totally drinkable and some deserve a dump down the sink.  It seems like it doesn’t matter how much you pay for a wine, sometimes it just doesn’t live up to the delight of your taste buds.  I’m not a wine snob who can taste cherry, anise, peaches, and softly worn leather on my tongue or nose.  I just know whether I can drink it or whether it’s so bad I need to make pasta sauce.

Anyone want to join me on my quest?

    Thanks! I am going to take your list with me next week and give some of these a try. I always hear people raving about the TJ’s wine, so this gives me a place to dig in 🙂
