Wine on a Budget

Wine on a Budget | That's Pretty Ace
 

I am in no way a wine connoisseur, but I know my way around the $15 or less section. My dad taught me the tools of the (red wine) trade, but it's also fun to experiment a bit as well. Here are my top picks. Most of these are top rated wines that were either recommended to me or recommended by a "top choice" flag at a store. I usually pick up wines at Central Market, World Market, or Trader Joe's. 

RED: 

• Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon

• Plungerhead Zinfandel

• Layer Cake Shiraz

• Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (we had this one during communion in our wedding ceremony - my personal favorite red)

WHITE:  

• Luna Pinot Grigio

• Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio

• Leese + Fitch Chardonnay (maybe my favorite white I've ever had!)

 

What about you? Any favorites you'd recommend?
