Wine Class: Splurge vs. Economy: Wines to Hold Back vs. “Porch Pounders”
Price is relative for every individual. There are wines that we save for special occasions while drinking it with the best kind of company and there are wines that we all just want to enjoy with our everyday meal. The latter need neither be plonk nor something that breaks the bank. The $15-$25 per bottle has been identified as the sweet spot for purchasing wines before it hits a consumer’s point of diminishing returns.

Wine Class: Austrian Red Grapes: Blaufrankish & Zweigelt
Austria, like Germany, has long been more well-known as countries producing world-class white wines and sweet wines from the south. In a way, it’s great that the country’s red wines don’t get as much attention – we like to keep insider secrets too. Fans of red wines that explode with ripe cherries take note of Zweigelt. Are you more in the realm of lush berries with a velvety texture? Align yourself with Blaufrankish, and you may find yourself hoarding bottles.
