Being used to huge taxes on wines, its amazing here. We reagularly drink really pleasant wines for under 5euros, thhe same ones we would be paying a lot more for in UK. *sigh* oh well. We are meaning to try a good Barolo soon, but they ARE more pricey, and we are working our way through a variety of under 10E wines.

The ones I make myself...

I think I have the cost down to about $2.50/bottle USD now.. (Getting hard to refigure the cost on the bottles, since I recycle/reuse them)

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

BV Coastal Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2004, from Sonoma County, California. Best Cabernet I have ever had, regardless of origin.

While I can't single any one out, I will say that I've been most pleased with under-$10 brands of Pinot Grigio, & always have one in the fridge for cooking & an occasional glass. Whether domestic or imported, they've all been very nice & well made.

I love Pinot Grigio too.
My favorite red lately is Coppola- Merlot. It costs more than $10.00 but not by much and is certainly worth the extra couple of dollars.

Tat, this one -- "Ravenswood,all of them" -- has me confused. Most of Ravenswood's wines cost a good deal more than $10. so all of which do you mean?

My faves? Banrock Station Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sparkling Chardonnay;
La Vieille Ferme, both red and white;
Perrin Reserve, both red and white;
Concha y Toro, Cab/Merlot and Syrah/Malbec,
Banfi, Col di Sasso and Le Rime.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I have finally started noting the under $10. wines in a purse notebook to take shopping with me - so these are new ones -

Barrelston tisdale, Merlot, $3.99 out of Modesto
Hyatt Vineyards, '04 merlot, $5.00, Yakima Valley (WA)
Crane Lake, '04 Petit Sirah, $3.99
L'Ecole No. 41 '05 CColumbia Valley Semillon, $8.50
Mastantuono Winery in Templeton, CA has some great tasting buys:
'05 Pinot Grigio, $4.
'04 Zin, $10.
'03 Syrah, $10
'05 Muscat Canelli, $8.
even.....a sparkling that's not half bad - $8.

and the best of all - my husband's '99 Zin - we just drank the last bottle last summer and it was still great!!!

I love this thread and I'm madly copying everything down!!

an old cook, still learning new tricks!
