Wine value is a relative term. It all depends on how much money you have and how important wine is to you. In most wine publications, wine value is something that is good and is priced under $20 to $25. Personally, I happen to believe you can find value for less than that. . . . → Read More: What Are The Best Wine Values of 2012?
Most of us are interested in good cheap wine. There are a few people out there, however, who don’t fall into that category. You might ask if a dedicated wine geek really prefers to spend more for wine than he should. I have seen this happen. These folks tend to drink labels rather than wines. If you know someone like this, please do not tell them about these excellent value wines available in 2012. We wouldn’t want them to have an identity crisis or something. . . . → Read More: Three Value Wines For 2012
Bogle has been mentioned here before as having good wine for good prices. It is listed on my Value Wineries and Wines page here on the blog.

A top-notch wine shop near my house (great job, Roger, Stephanie & Tish) had a tasting of 5 wines from Tilia in the Mendoza region of Argentina. According to the wholesaler’s rep, Tilia is a 2nd label from Catena, a high end producer of wines in Argentina. . . . → Read More: Tilia – Top Value Wine From Argentina
A few months ago I wrote a post on the 2009 wines from Beaujolais. They are unusual because of their quality. Wines from here are usually good to very good, but rarely very good to great. Raves about the 2009 vintage have been coming in from all over. Apparently I don’t live in a place that gets the new stuff first. Yes, the wagon train did eventually make it to the general store here in deepest, darkest Central Florida, and it had what we have been waiting for. . . . → Read More: Tasting The 2009 Beaujolais

There are several sources of wine reviews out there. Most are magazines, either online or print (sometimes both). Publications like Wine Advocate, Wine Enthusiast, Connoisseur’s Guide, and Wine Spectator are some of the biggies. In total, they review thousands of wines a year.
