Employees at wine shops can also be great resources as they can impart extraordinary bargains, something possibly no one at your supermarket will do. Here are a few areas and types of wine to consider: For red wines, malbecs and cabernet sauvignons from Chile and Argentina are outstanding, inexpensive, and very widely accessibl.
So are reds from Australia, while they may be too big and brave for some. If you can discover them, I’ve also had fantastic Hungarian wines as they are not yet widely obtainable in several regions of the world like the USA. Zinfadels from California are a different budget offering that don’t come with a budget taste. And don’t forget to explore Spanish wines, some of my favorites.
For whites, try New Zealand wines, particularly Sauvignon blancs but also chardonnays. Pinot Grigios from Italy are brilliant and the costly ones are seldom worth it. The mid priced ones are normally as good or better in my belief! And German Rieslings are savoury, naturally slightly lower in alcohol and calories too. For a slightly sweet effervescent wine that may startle you, try an Italian Moscato d’Asti- simply breath taking, and not at all expensive. This is a incomplete list.
