As you know, I love a deal. And when it comes to wine, I know exactly where my under-$5 bottles are stashed at the local grocery store. Lately, it seems I’m not the only one who knows their bottom-shelf secret, and I’m no longer suprised when I see a big empty spot in place of shiny, perfect bottles. So you can imagine the smile on my face when we spotted a big ol’ rack of $4.99 deals at World Market. But the best part isn’t the low price, rather, I was absolutely smitten by the labels.
How much do I really know about pairing a certain wine with a certain food? Truth is, I don’t have the first clue, and I’ll be the first to admit it. I like what I like, so I drink what I like. I love red, and that’s usually that. But these babies might just open up a whole new door for me. A door full of new flavors and yummy palettes. With a label that actually points you in the right direction, how could I go wrong? We’ll see. Until I pop that first top, they sure do look cute sitting on my wine rack.
