5 Affordable Wines to Love



1. Apothic Red



I can usually find this red blend for around $8 a bottle. It's a very drinkable wine that boasts dark fruit flavors and jam-like red fruit notes. It is to die for.

2. Casillero de Diablo



The best way to describe this Chilean wine, in my opinion, is sweet and peppery. I know that sounds strange but the combination of blackberry, mineral, and oak flavors in this wine is unique and SO TASTY. Especially considering it is under $10.

3. Cupcake


I love ALL Cupcake wines but my all time favorite is Red Velvet. I pretty much love everything with the words "Red Velvet" in it so I figured this wouldn't be an exception. My prediction was accurate. It's very smooth and easy to drink. It has hints of cocoa, black cheery, and blackberry. I also think it's pretty creamy. A lovely wine all around.

4. Line 39



Their Sauvignon Blanc is to DIE for. The citrus hints remind me of grapefruit and lemon, with a little bit of grass aroma. I know that sounds strange but this wine is CRISP and easy to drink. It's a must try if you are a white drinker.

5. Les Fontanelles


Cabernet Sauvignon is one of my favorite types of wine. Les Fontanelles does not disappoint. This wine has more a of a chocolate edge. It's smooth and medium-bodied, the perfect Friday night glass of wine to share with a friend!

What's your go to affordable wine?
