Favorite Wines Under $50

I was glad Saveur magazine had this article on six sommeliers' favorite bottles of wine under $50. But I was disappointed that most of the sommeliers offered sparkling wines (something most of us don't drink much year-round) as their choices.

Not only that. One recommendation was the Julien Fouet Crémant de Loire, NV -- a sparkling wine that I'm willing to bet is next to impossible to find in most wine shops.

Oh well. The article is still worth checking out.

I have a few inexpensive wines to suggest for wine drinkers who have the recession on their minds. Both are available at most Whole Foods outlets -- the Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon and the Quattro Mani Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. Both can be purchased for under $12. Great values.
