Uncorking a new bottle of wine is a taste-testing experiment: Will you like it? Is it too sweet? How’s the aftertaste? Leave all these mysteries behind and keep reading to get the scoop on our favorite – and surprisingly good – cheap bottles of wine.
Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco
We’re starting this list off with a sparkler. This bubbly blend is not too sweet, with hints of nectarine or peach, and honeydew melon. Pair this with a charcuterie board on a girls’ night at home, or pop open a bottle to serve it with a light pasta dish.
The Velvet Devil Merlot
Two words describe this merlot: Bold and flavorful. While leaning more to the dry side, this medium-bodied blend is a smooth sip. For less than $15 a bottle, this needs to be the star of the show at your next gourmet meal. Try homemade burgers or a cheesy risotto for the perfect flavor pairing.
Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon blanc is traditionally a lighter, crisper wine and this blend falls right in line. It’s quite refreshing and easy to drink, so maybe go for two bottles here? With hints of citrus notes and a buttery aftertaste, serve it alongside fresh veggies, a salad with a tangy vinaigrette, or a light pasta dish.
Nik Weis Selection Urban Riesling
What’s a wine list without a riesling? Lemon, honey, green apple, and lychee steal the spotlight in this refreshing blend. Try pairing this very versatile wine with sushi, grilled fish, or a light chicken dish.
Wine Down Wednesday
On Aug. 18, join us at The Enclave for our Wine Down Wednesday resident event where you can socialize with neighbor friends and sip on a variety of flavors, before heading out to purchase a bottle of your own.
Most of these wines are available at nearby grocery stores such as Winn-Dixie or Publix Super Market, or you can look for them at M&T Liquors or A to Z Liquors. For more recipe ideas and food hacks, check out our other blog posts today.
