LOOKING FOR A VERSATILE WINE FOR CHILIS, STEWS AND BRAISED MEATS? TRY THESE BOTTLES PRICED FOR A CASUAL WEEKNIGHT, BUT DELICIOUS ENOUGH FOR A DINNER PARTY.
Let’s get cozy this season with solid bottles of wine that won’t break the bank and are perfect for a variety of fall foods. From a casual weeknight dinner to a holiday party with friends, these wines are some of our favorite go-to’s for under $30.
This big-nosed Italian blend is aged in oak barrels for just the right amount of woody notes that goes hand in hand with the aromas of autumn. Lighter on the palate than the scents of the wine let on, this is what we affectionately call a “Tuesday pizza wine”. Perfect on a weeknight with simple meats, cheese, and even pizza, this wine has juice flavors of ripe blueberries and cherries with a peppery finish.
Pairing: Enjoy with a beautiful fall pizza like this one.
