SIP, SAVOR, SAVE
Wine doesn't have to be expensive to be good. In blind tastings, people often prefer mid-priced wines to stuffy, hard-to-appreciate premium-priced wines. Certainly spending a lot of money on a bottle does not guarantee you will enjoy it -- and that's the most important part, regardless of price. With so many new labels and so much information about wine, it can be overwhelming to navigate the shelves, especially when looking for good value. Cheapism.com has rounded up a dozen white wines and a dozen red wines for $10 or less that have earned the approval of professional and consumer reviewers in tastings across the country. Prices and distribution vary, so not all the wines are available everywhere at these prices, but you're sure to find at least a few recommended bottles at a local shop.
