The nexus of wine sales has shifted drastically in the 21st Century putting America on the map as the worlds top wine consumer, and as previously stated consumer wine trends reports that the average bottle of wine purchased in America is between $11-$15 ( €7-10, £ 6-9). This division of economically priced wine is a poignant sector in developing your wine cellar as it will comprise of half or more of your bottles. As you may have surmised we too are wine abecedarians so this is a comfortable price spectrum to take risks on new labels or to buy current vintages to store for a few years (we will save the perplexing topic of long term wine storage for a future Winesday post).
This the second in a Winesday mini-series starting with $10 or less , we are now traversing into the $15 or less wine tier.
Most bottles we have chosen for you have a wine rating of 88 points or more from either Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, or Robert Parker.
