Our Perfect Case of Affordable Wine

We’ve grown (maybe temporarily) tired of this particular game. We still love wine; we love food and cooking; but we’re tired of the blog-twitter-everything-internet-crap. So we thought we’d sign off, for now, with our list of A Perfect Case of Affordable Wines. When (if) we return, we’ll have much more of a focus on food and cooking (and wine pairings with meals).

These should be widely available, less than $12 (especially if on sale), and reliable from year-to-year.

Tapena Tempranillo (Spain)
Bogel Zinfandel (California)
Bogel Petite Sirah (or possibly Concannon as a substitute – both California)
Barnard Griffin Syrah (Washington)
Castle Rock Pinot Noir (California)
Beringer White Zinfandel (California)
Cristalino Rose or Brut Cava (Sparkling – Spain)
Covey Run Sauvignon Blanc (Washington)
Kiona Chenin Blanc (Washington)
Columbia Crest Pinot Grigio (Washington)
Barnard Griffin Chardonnay (Washington)
B&G Vouvray (France)

Adios, and Enjoy.
