Late Summer best-Buy Wines denies that Plonk Wine is the only value wine.
"Value" wine is a relative term, but keep in mind that most wine purchases are under $15.00, in general, good Red wine is more expensive than good White wine, and in general, the more you pay for a bottle of wine, the better the wine!
Considering that Labor Day is upon us, and I for one am getting prepared for a family celebration, I'm also considering what wine(s) to share that will please without breaking the bank.
So, since I can only rely on wines I've tasted, I'll follow-up on Best wines of 2013 just before summer with the best (QPR) wines I've tasted since.
