Last week, I posted an article with my Top 10 Budget Wine picks. In the dreamy, sleep-deprived bliss of fatherhood, I totally missed the opportunity to invite you to submit YOUR favorite low-cost wines.
Blame it on the magic of having a new baby in the house – the kind of special magic that wakes you at 3AM and keeps you up until 6AM soothing a small, crying human being and saying things like “Aaaaaawwwwwwww…. What’s the matter sweet lil’ munchkin?“
Anyway, let’s make up for this gross oversight!
Got a great “budget wine” recommendation? Shout it out in the Comments!
1) You have to think the wine is good
2) The wine needs to be widely accessible
3) The wine needs to be cheap (ideally under $15 USD, but certainly not more than $20 tops).
In other news: My stint in “new baby-land” continues, and so far I am really digging being a dad. To help me out and give me some extra diaper-changing time, there will be more interesting guest posts for you next week. Stay tuned…

Peachy Canyon Incredible Red for pizza or anything zesty – $10
Mark West Pinot Noir – also $10 (usually)
There are great mid-week picks that are tasty if not super complex, and very friendly to the gas strapped wallet.
I also enjoyed the Alexander Fitch Alex. Valley Cab from Trader Joe’s but alas the 2005 is gone, and the 2006 is not nearly as good, even if it is only $5.99.
For a white, Geyser Peak Sauvingnon Blanc is terrific. I have found previous vintages at Cost Plus for as little as $3 on clearance, and current vintages for $8.99.
I drink a lot of good stuff, but sometimes I am a tad overextended before pay day, and these keep me in the juice nicely.
Thanks, VinquireThea. Excellent picks – especially if you found a decent bottle of vino for under $6!
