    For slightly pricier wine ($10-$15) I really like the wines from Little Penguin and Rabbit Ridge.
    2 buck chuck ftw!!

    It really does taste damn good for $2.

    Bull's Blood, from Eger in Hungary, is a nice dry red.

    Back in the 90s it used to be pants, but they've got their act together. It's cheap - but not that cheap.

    Pine Ridge - Viognier/Chenin Blanc

    Amazing off dry white for around $20.

    Francois Montand Champagne (technically not a champagne as it is made right outside the province) but it is around 10 and is amazing.

    Bodegas Ateca (Atteca) 2007 is a Spanish Grenache that's really nice for around 15.

    I have a tip for opportunistic wine-buying. It's a useful one.

    Years ago, my house mate and I used to have a greasy English breakfast over the Saturday newspapers, in a grubby cafe in Wandsworth. The Guardian used to have a wine column by Martin Gluck - Cheapo Wines For Middle Class Knobs Like You, or some such.

    We'd drive to the supermarket with a few ideas, but invariably someone had got there first and they'd be only a few bottles of Martin's choice recommendations left, tucked away right at the back of the shelf.

    If I see an empty shelf, with a few bottles right at the back, I'll buy them. I've never had a bad one yet. In other words, don't look for the wine. Look for the lack of wine.

    And without the hassle of buying The Guardian.

    I'm not good at remembering names....but I like this red blend wine which is about $8: Folie a Deux Menage a Trois Red


    I am not a fan of two buck chuck, for the record. I tried it once, and never again....

    I am lucky to live near wine country and get very good local wines that retail for $15-25 normally for more like $10-15 (or even $5-7 on sale) because there's little to no shipping cost.

    I was looking for a decent Pinot Noir at the supermarket and I found an Argentinian Salentein Reserve Pinot Noir 2007 to around $11 here in denmark. Its a bit alcoholic, but when its decantated for an hour or more it gets a lot more full in the taste and smell. The alcohol is still there but the fruits of the wine are so much more out there. Its a decent buy for a different kind of tablewine than the usual kind. I will buy this to people that needs a different kind of taste than the usual cabernet sauvignon of the southern americas. I had a Malbec and a cabernet sauvignon from south america the day before and eventhough the Malbec had a more full taste, more cherry taste and a more portwine texture, Id still go for the Salentein Pinot Noir if I could choose.

    Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon is about $15 a bottle and is often compared to $40 bottles. Of all the cheap red wines, this one is the best IMO. I can't explain tastes to other people in a way that makes any sense but for $15 (you can find it on sale at the grocery store for $10ish) you should give it a go.
