I’m going to be honest. Most wines I find are above $10, and more in the $15 – $18 dollar range. I have tried a few that were under $10 but rarely do I feel they are worth the mention. Recently though, I found a gem that was not only under the $10 mark – but delicious!
I spotted the Blue Moon Riesling at my local supermarket for only $7! I thought to myself, why not? Riesling is a really interesting varietal to me. Many of them are sweet, and sometimes I find myself craving one to pair with my spicy dishes or to drink on its own on a nice summer day. This particular occasion I was just watching a movie at home and poured myself a nice glass. The Blue Moon Riesling was slightly sweet, with flavors of honey-suckle, apricot, and fresh fall fruits. It was extremely well rounded and an all-in-all a fantastic find. For an average of about $8, this wine is a killer deal. Produced by Bridgeview wines in Cave Junction, you can buy this knowing you are supporting a local winery as well. Cheers to great local finds!
