Here is a list of dreamy, somewhat exotic (but not hard to find) wines that I love, all priced under $23! If you’d like to check out a video of these bottles, see here

Sparkling Wine:

•Crémant d’Alsace (Domaine Allimant Laugner) $23 – A Champagne-style sparkling wine, but less expensive because it isn’t made in the region of Champagne! This is smooth and dry, and is a go-to for me for all occasions!

White Wine:

•Etna Bianco (Murgo) $18 – A light, dry and crisp wine with notes of citrus and flowers. It grows up high on the hillside of a Volcano in Sicily!

•Macon Villages (Joseph Drouhin) $20 – A crisp, easy to drink Chardonnay (not buttery). Smooth and consistent straight from Burgundy, where the best Chardonnays are made!

Red Wine: 

•Côtes du Rhone (Saint Cosme) $20 – my FAVORITE! These wines are always a good go-to. They follow strict laws to make sure that they are quality wines. Easy to drink medium-bodied red wine for anyone!

•Tempranillo “Crianza” (Viña Cubrero) $15 – If you visit Northern Spain, this is the everyday drinker that you find in every bar and restaurant. It’s refreshing, interesting, and easy to drink. 

•Nero d’Avola Sicilia (Zabù) $16 – For the Pinot Noir drinker that is sick of Pinots!

•Rosso di Montalcino (Fanti) $20 – Great bang for your buck. Light to medium-bodied red that is always a crowd pleaser! It’s made next to the region of Brunello (famous) so it’s very similar without the price tag.

•Valpolicella (Venturini) $17 – Medium-bodied specialty made in the region where Romeo and Juliette is based. A fun wine to find and try for a good price!
