Wine on a Beer Budget?

Wine on a Beer Budget?

Okay, there’s another one of those delightful wine walks coming up in New Symrna Beach this Saturday.  It’s a great opportunity to try some really good wine, get a bit of an education and catch a buzz for a reasonable price. (https://www.facebook.com/SouthernStoneEvents)

You’ll find it’s easy to spread the day out with lots of shopping.  Yes, window shopping counts!  It’s almost a given you’ll end up buying a bottle or two of wine.   The holidays will be here before you know it…a gift with a story is always more fun to give!  Remember to drink waters between each wine.  You’ll extend your sampling time and likely help avoid a Sunday morning headache.  Wine paired with a leisurely lunch, followed by a walk on the beach is another great way to savor the day. Or plan to start your experience later in the day, timing it out to grab your last glasses of wine to enjoy with dinner.

If you find yourself searching for a tasty wine to hold you over after the bottles purchased on your walk run out, you might want to give these a try.  (http://bottomlinepersonal.com/great-american-wines-for-12-or-less/)  The Black Box Merlot mentioned is worthy of a fancy cheese platter.  Although Barefoot Chardonnay was unnoted, it is a Gold Metal winner which makes cooking a whole lot more fun!  Bonus, the shareable size is often less than $10!  Enjoy!!!  \m/
