100 wines a sommelier would buy from the grocery store for less than $20!

how to shop for wine Jan 26, 2021

You asked for it and you will receive!! Everyone is always looking for the highest quality wine for the cheapest price. And unfortunately it does take a little bit of wine knowledge to accomplish this goal. There are many over priced wines and many underpriced wines out there and I’m here to show you some wines that I believe to be a good value for the cost.

** Disclaimer- I always recommend to #shoplocal and #shopsmall when shopping for wine. The best plan is to go to your local wine boutique shop and ask them for recs on their selection.

But if you happen to find yourself shopping for wine in a chain market, here’s some that I think are worth the money!
