Budget Friendly Wines

How many times have you gone into the liquor store in hopes of finding the perfect bottle of wine to spice up your evening, but end up settling on a wine far less than perfect simply because of it's price tag? I don't know about you, but this has become a regular occurrence for myself and many of my friends. We end up purchasing the cheapest bottle in the store and once we have taken our first sip, discover how simply unbearable to wine is and up either pouring it down the drain, or find some sort of chaser to take after each sip in order to tolerate it. Well my friends, this problem can end right here and now! Here is an awesome article written by Angela Aiello for Steven and Chris.  The article lists five different budget friendly wines, a description of each wine, a suggested food pairing, and tips on the scenario for enjoying the wine.  So the next time you stop into your local liquor store, refer to this list and there will be no need to pour any wine down the drain or chase every sip! 

Angela is one part of "Toronto's Hottest Social Wine Club," the iYellow Wine Club, who, along with her partner Paxton Allewell, are helping to get Toronto enthusiastic about wine and wine culture by holding monthly wine events, wine tours, and newsletters.  Their extensive wine knowledge combined with their undeniable charm makes the iYellow Wine Club a wonderful resource for young people to turn to to get excited and learn about wine.  Become a member today!

I love finding new, great tasting wines that don't break the bank! but my standby is Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio. It's only like 8 or 9 bucks a bottle and I love it!
