Have a holiday party coming up? Or just like to drink good, cheap wine, like me? Either way, here are some great bottles to stock a party or your pantry.
From L to R:
19 Crimes – Red Blend: This is my go-to affordable bottle to take to a party or someone’s house. It’s good and has a unique label. Each cork has one of the 19 crimes on it; I’m currently trying to collect all 19.
Underwood – Pinot Noir: I don’t normally drink pinot noir, but when I do this is it. And usually, I drink it in the can in the summer. Yes, a can of wine. It’s an amazing thing.
Souverain – Cabernet: This is my latest find and current favorite. I liked the bottle and it was under $10 so I tried it out. I’ve bought about 5 bottles in the last month …
Sledgehammer – Cabernet: This is another one I randomly picked up off the shelves and has become a staple lately.
Cupcake – Malbec: I really like a good Malbec, but typically they’re more expensive. This one is lighter than usual and very easy to drink.
Dark Horse – Cabernet: Funny thing about this one – It was my go-to drink at Sassafrass Vineyard for about $8/glass. One day I saw it in the liquor store for, you guessed it, $8 A BOTTLE. Now I just buy the bottle.
Alamos – Malbec: Here’s another cheaper Malbec that’s good and that I originally found at a restaurant then saw how cheap it was in the store.
Ecco Domani – Pinot Grigio: If I drink white, it’s drink Sauvignon Blanc. However, this is a great, light and refreshing white I really enjoy when it’s hot outside.
Charles & Charles Rosé: Oh, it was the summer of rosé! While this one is a little more than $10 ($11-$12), I had to add it to the list because it is oh so delicious.
Freixenet Negro Brut: Looking for a good champagne that looks fancier than $10? This is it. There are several styles to choose from. I always go for the brut.
What’s your favorite wine for less than $10?
