How to Choose a Good Bottle of Wine

Wine Bottles

Selecting a bottle of wine should be simple enough, but finding the right one among endless aisles of bottles can be intimidating. Here’s how to take the stress out of your shopping trip.

-Ask an employee. Most sales clerks are happy to make recommendations based on price point or taste.

-Pick a brand you know. Best-sellers, like Beringer and Kendall-Jackson, are often popular because they offer great value for the money.

-Don’t rely on price. Though a high price point can indicate a higher quality, that isn’t always the case. As with other expensive foods (caviar and exotic cheese, for example) expensive varietals can require an acquired taste. Lower-priced bottles may be more universally appealing.

-Sample. Taste a few different inexpensive bottles of each of the basic wine varieties to zero in on what you prefer.

    A bad bottle of wine is simply the starter to a pitcher of your favorite sangria.
