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.

    1. Do you already drink wine and have any favorites? If you are new to wine I would suggest Apothic Red, it's a California Red Table wine for about $10 and it's very soft so nearly everyone likes it. For a white I would go with a Toasted Head Chardonnay for $10. I would also pick up a bottle of Riesling for the sweet toothed guests. You can usually find a Chateau Ste Michelle for $8. Those are good for those that don't want full bodied robust wines. The Black Box Wines (it's a boxed wine in a black box as you might have imagined lol) is surprisingly good for the price. Would you like more suggestions or will that cover it?
