In this recession, we can't completely rob ourselves of all of our pleasures. We just have to learn how to economize them. Here is my list for the best cheap wines to enjoy on your patio this summer! Enjoy and feel free to add your own- I love suggestions!
I discovered this blush when visiting with a friend that lives in Morro Bay. I'm definitely not a fan of blush wines but, it was part of our tasting and highly recommended. This is DELICIOUS and cheap, it's the epitomy of summer wines to me. Price: $9
This is another wine I discovered at Harmony Cellars with my friend. I really like light wines for a summer's day and this one is perfect! It blends Chenin Blanc, White Riesling and Chardonnay all for $10.
This is my boyfriend's all-around favorite. As a white wine guy, he doesn't like the heaviness of a typical Chard and loves this Riesling as a light, slightly fruity alternative. I like that it's not as heavily fruity as other Riesling's I've tasted. But, if you're a die-hard Woodsbridge Chard fan, you might not like it. My mom is one and she said it was too fruity for her. Price: $6
When I first saw this bright red wine, I thought YIKES! But, it's light and juicy that has perfectly blended notes of strawberries and spices. So, another one that's not too overpoweringly fruity. Price: $10
