I love talking about cheap wines. They are what I drink the most. Mary Cressler over at Vindulge asked me for my go-to picks costing less than ten bucks. You’ll find I’m a fan of:
- Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. Pretty much all of it.
- White wines from the Côtes de Gascogne in Southwestern France.
- Red blends a la “CMS”: one from Italy where S is for Sangiovese, one from Washington where it’s Syrah.
As a bonus, Mary also solicited recommendations from five other wine bloggers and, of course, added her own. I magnanimously didn’t poach a certain Spanish wine with a big “C” on the label because I knew Mary would want to use it. Who says bloggers are selfish?
It’s quite a diverse list, though Cava is well-represented. How did I not pick any bubbles? Sheesh. OK, I’ll add it here and keep the Cava love flowing: Mas Fi Brut.
