Katie’s Top 10 Good & Affordable Wines

When I walk into the wine aisle of the grocery store I get overwhelmed by all the choices and price points. After spending time in Paso Robles & Napa over the past few years, I’ve been able to try lots of wine and now have a solid list of wines in my wheelhouse that are affordable and really good. By affordable, I say around 20 bucks or less. As I am approaching 30 I have ditched the 2 buck chuck, but I am also not comfortable drinking a 65 dollar bottle of Silver Oak on a Wednesday night.  I like to buy wines from this list on a weekly basis and have an easy time finding them at my local grocery store or beverage depot. I tried to include a variety of wines and cover my favorite reds and whites. Try a couple out when you see them and feel good about enjoying them any night of the week. If you have any other wines in the 20 dollar range, post a comment below. I aways like to try new ones!

Katie’s Top 10 Good  & Affordable Wines 

  1. Liberty School Cabernet: Price point-$13 From: Paso Robles, California
  • I drink this on weeknights with most any meal I make.

2. Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio: Price point-$18 From: Trentino region of Italy

  • I drink this with pasta, like Shrimp Scampi. Also perfect for hot summer day with a cheese plate. This is my go to white.
  1. Wild Horse Pinot Noir: Price point: Price point: $17 From: Paso Robles, California
  • Just down the road from my in-laws place in Templeton, Ca, so this one is sentimental!
  1. Ruffino Chianti: Price point: $14 From: Tuscany region of Italy
  • I like drinking this with any Italian meal. It’s a good table wine and very drinkable
  1. Falanghina Irpinia D.C.: Price point: $16 From: Campania region of Italy
  • White wine that’s dry but still fruity.  Another great wine with seafood or pasta
  1.  Justin Cabernet: Price point: $23 From: Paso Robles, California
  • One of the best for affordability and depth of flavor. Eat with grilled steak or burgers. Yum!
  1. Marques de Caceres Reserva Rioja: $18 From: Rioja region of Spain
  • 90 points from Wine Spectator. I like eating this with a Spanish cheese tray with manchego cheese, Marcona almonds, and honey
  1. Estancia Cabernet: $12 From: Paso Robles, California
  • Solid cabernet that I drink with most any meal.
  1. Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche: Price point: $11 From: Rhone region of France
  • Sadly, I am not too familiar with French wines yet (silly I know!) but this is an excellent inexpensive bottle of wine that also happens to be French!

10. Alamos Malbec: Price point: $9 From: Region of Mendoza in Argentina

  • Argentina has the largest acreage of Malbec in the world and this budget wine  is a great introduction to South American wine.
