It’s OK To Be Choosy About Your Wine

Sunset through a wine glass

The other night I was out with a group of people and had the good fortune to sit next to a guy who is a huge wine afficionado.  He has traveled extensively and has a collection of several thousand bottles from all over the world.  So, when the time came to order off the wine list, I said, “I’ll have what he’s having!”  John looked over the list of wines by the glass and said, “I’m having a martini.”

Life’s too short to drink crappy wine, even at happy hour prices.
Of course wine preferences are subjective.  Ratings can be helpful but shouldn’t be the “be all, end all”.  But just as when looking for a new restaurant to try, recommendations can come in very handy. And there are lots of available lists of moderately priced, great wine.  Food & Wine lists Best American Wines Under $20.   At the website you can shop from a list of 90+ rated wines under $20.
Wine Enthusiast offers a buying guide that you can download in PDF form, print off and bring to your local store to shop for great wine.  Check out their list: Top 100 Best Buys 2012.

With a little research it’s pretty easy to find wines worth drinking – at any price.
