Okay so if you are anything like me when you walk into the wine store to buy a bottle or two you don’t always remember which wine you like the best. In fact, I usually find myself wandering the same aisle looking at the same labels and wondering silently…what the heck was the name of that wine that I loved two weeks ago? Well I have recently started a wine diary. What is a wine-diary you ask? It’s a great way to keep track of what you like and what you don’t and it is a great reference for future purchases. I rate each wine on a scale of 1-10. I then hand the glass to my husband who also rates it. (We often differ greatly) So after much “research” here are a few wines that scored very high. These pics are great gifts…great bottles for drinking during the Winter and great wines for bringing to a party as a housewarming gift. Love to hear what you think of these…and if you too have a go-to wine for gifting! Oh and they are all under 30 dollars a bottle. Cheers!!
