Monday night I was invited to talk about "cheap" wine by Linda Reznicek of Minstrel and Muse. Linda hosts her talk show on Monday evenings.
This was my first time speaking on a live audio stream. Yes, it was tough for Linda to shut me up. I did not mention all the wines I wanted due to time constraints. Below is a list of the wines I mentioned, as well as some of the wines I neglected to point out.
Note: Wines with good QPR (Quality Price Ratio) have High Quality and a Low Price.
All of the wines below are quality wines I would enjoy drinking and sharing with family and friends. They are at attractive price points, also referred to as wines having “Great QPR” *(Quality-Price Ratio). This is not a definitive list, just the list I was prepared to discuss.
