Not only can you turn to Consumer Reports for advice on cars, appliances and food — but they also put a pretty spot-on list of wine recommendations too.
Why I like it: Value is a factor, and instead of focusing on the ponce factor, they just focus on an enjoyable wine.
Values in reds & chardonnay – Finding an excellent wine that’s also affordable–say, under $20–is difficult but not impossible. In this year’s Ratings, we’ve identified two excellent zinfandels and three chardonnays. In all, there are 15 CR Best Buys among our Quick Pick recommendations (available to subscribers), including some very good bottles that cost as little as $8.
