THREE RULES FOR INEXPENSIVE WINES

The best wines do not always tote a hefty price tag. There are great wines from lesser-known wineries and regions that are less expensive but just as fine. The past few years have grown vastly-improved economy wines that offer quality taste for under $10 a bottle.

Barefoot WineTHE FIRST RULE

The cardinal rule for selecting cheaper wines is to never buy a wine that has a television commercial or high-end glossy magazine ads. If the winery has the money to expensively advertise, they are going to typically have an expensive price on their wines.

THE SECOND RULE

Stay away from well-known wine producing regions, such as Bordeaux and Burgundy. Wines from areas in South Africa, Australia, and Chile – places you would not typically associate with great wine – are now producing stellar wines at lower prices. There are also wines from less-commercialized areas in the States that also produce delicious, satisfying wines for people on a budget.

THE THIRD RULE

Try finding wines that no one knows about yet because once they become popular, they usually rise in price. Browse your local independently-owned wine purveyor or the local out-of-the-way wineries for good finds.
