Good Value Wines for the Holidays

Good Value Wines for the Holidays

[embedded content]
Fortunately, when it comes to evaluating wines, price is not necessarily the key defining metric for determining a good wine to drink. In this video, Bruce Bauer, a wine aficianado and proprietor of VINO, a boutique wine shop in Portland, Oregon, shares some of his favorite moderate to low-priced wines from the Pacific Northwest region, and the world.

Bauer provides solid wine buying tips in addition to specific recommendations, including suggestions for pairing certain styles of wine with different foods, flavor differences between oak barrel versus stainless steel barrel fermented wines, and a general guide to some of the defining characteristics of rieslings, malbecs, and other wine varietals.

For those curious to try different wines, and for those looking for more general information on choosing a type of wine to buy, Bauer offers a good introductory lesson. There’s even a short demonstration on a simple way to open a bottle of sparkling wine.

Here’s a list of the wines that appear in the video, and their retail price:

Peterson Zinfandel 24
Owen Roe Sharecropper’s Cabernet Sauvignon 15
J. Christopher Pinot Noir 27

Love & Squalor Riesling 18

Louis Perdrier Brut Rosé 10

Pinot Grigio 12
Ferraris Barbera 15
Andezon Cotes du Rhone 15
Altovinum Evodia Granache 11
