I frequently see Columbia Crest wines on sale for under $10 and I think they are a great wine for the money. The Merlot is my favorite.

Ecco Domani or Cavit for the cheap stuff. But Santa Margarita normally.

There's an amazing wine shop with incredibly well-educated wine "experts" that just opened up in Henderson. It's called Khoury's, right behind St Rose Hospital on Eastern and St Rose Pkwy. There's also another one on S Durango. I have to say, their staff is so helpful and not at all the snobbish type you might assume to run into in the wine industry!! Their selection of wines under $10 is HUGE, and very tasty! And SO much better than most of the grocery store wines you'll pay the same amount, or sometimes even MORE for!

Reds: Try one called "B*tch" It is an Australian Grenache, and absolutely delectable, especially for $9.99! I am also really into the Malbec varietal from Argentina... try one, you'll be delightfully surprised (most under $10)!

Whites: I am loving the Albarino varietal from Portugal/Spain, especially the Burgans from Rias Baixas (I think this one is $11.99)! It's like a cross between the fruit and citrus punch from a sav blanc and the complexity of a chardonnay (without that creamy mouthfeel).

PLEASE don't be intimidated by the names or the grapes! Try these, you'll fall in love as I have! Research them online if you please, so you have an idea of what they are all about... Maybe you'll feel like you are a wine-snob like I am pretending to be after tasting these and learning from the staff at Khoury's!! Haha

I could have called this the "Lisa Marie Presley, what's so discerning about liking Opus One?" You would have had to watch that Oprah show.

Anyway, me first. Crane Lake, any kind, $3.99.

PS: If you only like white zinfandel, don't even bother.
Yeah, I like the Crane Lake is very good for 4 buck. I also like PepperWood Grove is for around 7-9 bucks.

More of a fan of the reds, I can't do too much of the white wines anymore.

Wollersheim Winery's Prairie Fume, if you can find it outside of Wisconsin. It's a crisp, clean white wine, and one of our favorites.

There's a winery near me that makes wine from native Muscadine grapes. It's delicious.
